SEASONS CROSSING

31.08.16

The summer months are drawing to a close and an entirely new collection is starting to shift into focus, so what better time to lay the foundations for your pre-season wardrobe? We discover the pieces that will stay at the forefront of your rotation now and for months to come in our transitional fashion feature

BALLET CLASS

Soft shades stay in favour as we make the transition from one season to the next and dusky pinks place a focus on femininity that’s undeniably chic. When it comes to dresses, layered ruffles strewn across hemlines create movement, so balance the volume with a pair of sharply pointed pumps.

OPTIC MONOCRHOME

This season sees tailoring charter a new path, with the time-tested combination of black and white capturing a certain pared-back minimalism that feels fresh and bright. Toughen up soft trouser silhouettes with the addition of a utility-inspired trench coat, worn draped over your shoulders for a dose of cool-girl attitude.

A STRUCTURED STATEMENT

Sleek, structured and designed with the finer details in mind, a collarless biker jacket will showcase the transformative powers of leather. Counteract the sharp modernity with languid, lightweight silhouettes and keep styling understated for added drama.

PROPORTIONAL MIX-UP

Recent collections have seen the jumpsuit officially make its mark on fashion’s landscape and it’s this season’s answer to the tricky task of showcasing skin. In a contemporary twist, trouser shapes come wide and boxy, elongating the silhouette and exploring new proportions.

CITY CHIC

There’s a certain Parisian sensibility that goes hand-in-hand with a generously brimmed hat and it will head up any look with stylish allure. Wear it with a combination of slick, timeless separates in black and white to fuse precision-polish with nonchalance.

REVEAL AND CONCEAL

Committing to the notion that less is more, cut-away shoulder detailing will expose a flicker of flesh and breathe fresh perspective into classic navy styles. Softly cinch the waist of loose silhouettes with a self-tie belt – it’s an elegant and fuss-free way to add definition to your look.

ALL NATURAL

Laced with the promise that it will become the most re-visited style in your wardrobe, it’s time to add the midi skirt to your fashion lexicon. Petal-inspired shades go beyond classic and delicate and become somewhat more natural. Tulle layering adds to this overall softness and creates a light-as-air aesthetic that’s perfectly suited to now.

TEXTURE CLASH

The micro masterpiece that is the leather mini skirt shows no sign of giving up its top spot in our list of transeasonal heroes, but there’s a new way to style it and it celebrates one of the season’s upcoming trends; metallics. Tuck in a high-shine knit for a rich clash of texture that’s perfectly on-point.
