About the Shoot

As a British brand, we’re all too familiar with unpredictable weather. After last year’s wash-out summer, it’s no surprise that our designers have kept versatility in mind when putting together our stylish SS13 collection.

However, this doesn’t mean we’re forgetting our international fan base. In fact, this approach will suit our Australian followers perfectly who are heading into their winter months now (which although are colder, are nothing like the below-zero months we’re accustomed to).

So, whether you’re gearing up to a volatile British summer or a not-so-warm winter Down Under, we’ve got it covered. The question is, how should you prepare for the unpredictable season?

Well, as always, layering is key. An unbuttoned shirt or basic tee will work perfectly under a softly tailored blazer in a light hue. This will add layers of luxe and extra warmth on chillier days.

Lightweight knits are also ideal for changeable weather. They look just as great teamed with summer trousers as they do a tailored pair of shorts.

The trick is to opt for a knit in a bright or pastel hue to inject some summer style into the look.

A knitted polo is also ideal for variable weather. It has the look of a summer piece but the texture of an autumnal style. Wear yours with tapered linen trousers or tailored shorts.

There will of course be those hot sunny days (hopefully!) where no extra layers are needed. Take these opportunities to reach for your sunnies, a vintage-inspired printed shirt and lightweight pastel chinos.

A simple striped tee with long sleeves is also the perfect option for this time of year, injecting a nautical vibe into your wardrobe. Roll the sleeves up and team with black or white shorts on hotter days.

No matter what your plans are this summer and however the weather turns out, our contemporary spring/summer collection will ensure you stride through the season in effortless style.
