Get ahead of the game with the top trends that will shape this A/W.  These are the key trends to invest in now.
Nouveau Classic

It’s all in the details, with subtle tweaks to your wardrobe staples making all the difference. Subtle tailoring, fuss-free palettes and luxurious fabrics take your timeless essentials to the next level.

Pastel Pop

Inject colour into your winter with a sweet toned ensemble. These saccharine shades are this coming season’s neutral, with floss pink, robin-egg blue and soft lemon available in everything from coats and dresses to bags and shoes.

Bigger than Breton

It’s the Breton stripe, but not as you know it. This time bolder is better – opt for a strobing, block or textural stripe to set your look apart.

Period Piece

Edwardian-inspired elements were a favourite on the F/W runways. High necklines, ribbons, ruffles and longer lengths were seen in all four fashion capitals. For maximum impact, style two or more together.

Velveteen Dream

Both regal and rocker, velvet is the texture trending for this A/W. Whether it’s a hint of an accessory or a head-to-toe set, this undeniably decadent fabric adds of dose of modern opulence to any look.

Future Vintage

Vintage meets modern with retro silhouettes, reimagined. Think metallic tweeds, jagged patchworked jackets and fur stoles in saturated hues and striking cuts.
