Autumn Winter 2022

Ally Velvet Midi Dress, Quin Stretch Knee High Boot

For AW22, this season unveils a spirited sensibility that evokes both optimism and pragmatism as we gravitate towards hard-working pieces that bring a sense of playfulness to our day-to-dark closets. Juxtaposing statement shades and tactile textures with easy-wearing silhouettes, these are mood-boosting garments to uplift and inspire a stylish season ahead.

Who better to front such a collection no other than Julia Cumming, vocalist and bass player of the Brooklyn-based band Sunflower Bean. A New Yorker through and through, Julia evokes an energy that mirrors the city’s raw intensity and rivals its sense of individuality whilst demonstrating a masterclass in making the music you want, on your own terms.

Whether in a recording studio, on stage or in front of the camera, this unmatched bold statement of artistic expression, which Julia enthusiastically embodies, felt fitting to be the face of Whistles Autumn Winter 2022. “To me, style and fashion are inherently a way that music and the story of your music can be told. It really is your calling card – when you walk into a room, when you live your life, and also a way for you to change your life…however you choose to approach it, it is one of the easiest ways to bring more art into your life and get closer to your identity.” – Julia Cumming.
