THE OUTERWEAR DIRECTIVE

16.10.15

Outerwear is key to perfecting cold-weather capsule dressing and this season’s roll call sees both classic and contemporary designs stepping up to stave off the autumn chill. Discover our AW15 outerwear directive to set the tone for a season in style.

MINIMAL MOOD

Timeless and endlessly versatile, the right tailored coat will remain relevant year on year. Teamed with the season’s favoured neutral hues, it’s the purveyor of pared-back minimalism.

PROPORTION PLAY

Double-breasted designs take a modern turn for autumn, cut to striking oversized silhouettes that exude effortlessness. Layer yours over a high-waisted mini skirt to expertly balance proportions.

JEWEL TONES

There’s always glamour in a faux fur coat and it’s the rich jewel-tone colour palette that gives our AW15 series its opulent edge. Keep separates simple to let it steal the spotlight.

DARK ROMANCE

Saturated tones and the softest faux fur go hand in hand to wield a dramatic sensibility and capture a dark romance that’s perfectly suited to evening. Wrap up in an oversized coat to luxe effect.

STYLING MEMO

Directional styling is what gives autumn dressing its edge, and this season sees silhouettes shift from long and languid to structured and boxy in the same outfit. Layer a midi-length coat over a leather mini skirt to clash with confidence.

NAVY NOTION

Considered a new neutral for AW15, navy makes a sophisticated alternative to classic black. When styled head to toe, it’s perfectly in-keeping with the season’s tone-on-tone aesthetic.

CHECKERBOARD

For a modern mix of tone and texture, layer a classic wool coat over a bonded leather jacket or alternatively choose head-to-toe houndstooth for unrivalled impact.

FROST BITE

Keep things soft from head to toe with frosty-hued layers in wool, lace and shearling. Sleeveless jackets make an elegant addition to any outerwear repertoire.

TEXTURE PLAY

Undoubtedly the season’s most relevant trend, texture play continues through to outer layering. Drape a shearling cocoon coat over your shoulders for optimum style points.

MAN UP

Masculine tailoring is a poignant player in the power dressing game and a boxy overcoat is a simple yet effective way to work the look day-to-day.

GREAT LENGTHS

Dropped hemlines emulate elegance and when imagined in the softest shearling or wool, make for a luxe addition to all manner of cold-weather looks.
