TURN OVER A NEW LEAF

BROWN TOWN

Tonal neutrals of brown shrugged off their ‘drab’ moniker to reign supreme on the menswear catwalks. Sophisticated shades of beige, taupe and chocolate in luxury fabrics will be the look du jour for autumn/winter.

How to wear it:

Brown is the new navy and therefore claims its place as a neutral. Layer up tonal shades and textures to avoid one block colour and create interest.

JAZZY JUMPERS

Statement sweaters translate easily from the catwalk to city streets. Pick a sweater with bold colour, a political statement or fussy print and you are already two steps ahead in the style stakes. Designer Liam Hodges’ key piece in the shows was a Mr Blobby print sweater, maybe too statement for most. A safer pick may be this Kenzo dragon sweater for a more fashion forward look!

How to wear it:

Fuse streetwear and tailoring by layering knitwear over a black roll-neck, pleated sweatpants and neutral chunky trainers. Combine abstract designs and over-the-top prints with inoffensive neutrals or tonal colours for the perfect blend.

QUILTED OUTERWEAR

If you invest in one thing this autumn/winter make it a coat with some squishiness. Quilted jackets and puffers were a huge hit at the menswear shows. Formally the jacket of choice for dog walkers and ski bunnies, look for modern conceptual styling to ensure stylistic authority.

How to wear it:

Valentino’s black oversized puffer exemplifies the larger than life puffers seen on fashion’s key players. Its voluminous proportions are made all the more covetable by the addition of a throwback ‘80s logo print.
