German Chancellor Merkel arrives for a statement in BerlinBy Michael Holden and Paul Carrel LONDON/BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel sought on Saturday to temper pressure from Paris, Brussels and her own government to force Britain into negotiating a quick divorce from the EU, despite warnings that hesitation will let populism take hold. Eurosceptics in other member states applauded Britons' decision to leave the European Union in a referendum that sent shockwaves around the world, with far-right demands for a similar vote in Slovakia underlining the risk of a domino effect.

Dark, moody and menacing, there was even something slightly S&M in the way that Dior's Belgium-born designer Kris Van Assche managed to turn the braces into chest armour-cum-jewellery. There were still more echoes of punk in the check shirts and evocations of the ghost of Johnny Rotten's tartan in the clever red stitching against the collection's predominantly black core.
