The bold and the beautiful | AW18

 

This autumn signals a more forthright approach to dressing. Those with maximalist tendencies can luxuriate in the play-off between texture and print. While the modern sophisticate will find solace in slouchy tailoring, utility-inspired outerwear and a crisp seasonal palette of bitter chocolate, dusty mauve, winterberry and gold. When it comes to the season ahead the old idiom is tilted: more is most definitely more.

The silhouette is fluid and feminine, but has inherent strength. Louche shirt dresses and wrap-around silk bodices are anchored by tougher footwear, with over the knee boots and lace-up details bringing the attitude.

If print is our thing, then this season is no exception. Silvery forest ferns, geometric seed pods and wild autumnal florals – British horticulture inspires our esoteric handwriting this autumn-winter.
