Our Autumn/Winter season is nearly here and despite the skies still being blue, we’re actually looking forward to the darker days ahead for the style opportunities alone! Our latest collection sees a bold and interesting mix of influences – balancing the art moderne movement of the 1930s and the sports-luxe trend with touches of styling from the 70s. To help get you ready for the change in seasonal style, we’ve had a look through our latest lookbook to pick out some of our favourite trends for the season ahead.
Repeating geometric patterns with that art deco influence are noticeable in this micro-houndstooth wool-rich suit, worn with a perfectly stylish spread collar shirt and art deco geometric silk tie.
The sports-luxe movement reflects a wider move towards greater comfort and flexibility in what men wear - seen in our collection through the use of materials with stretch and performance attributes. The move to greater comfort also sees the introduction of double pleat trousers, a recurring trend in menswear which has found a home in the coming season. Knitwear too takes on a sports influence with half and full zipped knitted pieces giving a stylish nod to the ath-leisure movement.
The sport-luxe aesthetic also shows up in the appearance of elasticated waist trousers which can be worn with a co-ordinating jacket for a stylish and modern take on suiting. And we’re still loving the continuing trend of simple modern trainers worn with formal trousers to give that urban edge to tailoring.
As we start to think about the colder nights ahead, we’re getting style inspiration from the 70s with layered knitwear looks – wearing this statement geometric medium gauge sweater over a fine gauge plain turtle neck for a fresh take on a retro theme. Wear with a quality wool coat, simple formal trousers and a black and white trainer for a look which balances après ski with urban chic.
This season’s evening wear collection is suitably dark and moody. Rocco, our popular slim fit navy dinner suit returns with a new black version - the same subtle geometric fabric interest which made Rocco such a hit is sure to be popular in timeless black. Add an edge to your typically understated dinner suit by mixing this black mix and match dinner suit with a black shirt, worn without a tie. The satin lapels pick up the light to elevate this look - making your outfit the perfect party piece.
