Early Autumn is an homage to the sleek, simple and clean lines of 1960’s furniture and a re-imagining of retro references. An extension of the ‘Pure’ trend from spring-summer; building on the beauty of well-considered lines, strong silhouettes and surface texture that delights both the eye and senses – this design idyll balances function with a strong aesthetic presence.
THE PURITAN is a thoroughly modern lady who seeks beauty in the de-saturated colours of nature. Victoria Beckham and Tilda Swinton are your go-to muses for the season – let their keen eye for cut and proportion inspire you. Fendi’s collared shirts with generous cuffs should be a staple in your wardrobe, as is the label’s soft leather dresses (in both trapeze and shift incarnation). Explore The Row’s modern croc kimono top with slouchy pant combo – and Victoria Beckham’s mid-calf skimming culottes and skirts paired with softly engineered knitwear.
Key accessory shapes for the season? Cozy, cocooning knitwear, the minimalist beret, the men’s classic flat cap and geometric simplicity in bags (embodied in the new must-have ‘disc’ bag and ‘landscape’ clutch). Raise the style stakes by incorporating croc embossed nubuck leather and wild-cat lynx print in your finishing touches. Generate interest in shape and texture, this look is all about chic simplicity.
