The bold and the beautiful | AW18

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.

Rich, unexpected textures reign supreme.

From teddy bear shearlings to buttery leathers, glistening velvets and prismatic jacquards – these fabrics are anything but ordinary.

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.

Yet these are not prints you tire of easily.

They have a modernity and confidence that future-proofs your wardrobe, creating timeless pieces with 24/7 sensibilities, not flash in the pan trends.

For the sartorially laid-back, classic animal motifs in sophisticated neutrals feel right for 2018.

A bold tiger stripe rendered in tobacco tones on a sweater and a trompe l’oeil leopard jumpsuit make for easy additions to your weekday wardrobe.

A celebration of the bold and the beautiful, this collection can be defined by its easy maximalism and crisp, considered undertones. This is your new season dress code.

This is Whistles AW18.
