Ways to wear: the sweatshirt

Discover the contemporary relevance of this multi-purpose wardrobe staple. To build a successful wardrobe you don’t always need breadth; just a compact collection of versatile, high quality garments that will resonate regardless of dress code. With its ultra-minimal silhouette and androgynous charm, the sweatshirt is set to be a pivotal component within our wardrobes for autumn/winter 2013. 

Modernise your office look with our sculptured sweats. The precise panel detailing creates additional clean lines and the enhanced shoulder adds a subtle sportive edge. Pair with the Sandrine Silk Wide Leg Trouser and our oversized navy pony skin clutch for an intelligent take on monotone dressing. Counterbalance the look with a white stiletto.

Our grey marl sweatshirt provides a sharpened-up version of the much-loved casual staple. Crafted from neoprene, this piece boasts a progressive sculpted silhouette and three-quarter length sleeves, which add a smartened-up focus. Pair with our Nelly Tailored Trouser and bright white pumps for a look that will transport you from Sunday night to Monday morning effortlessly. In order to complete this look, accessories should be large-scale and crafted from luxe skins. 

Double up on loose, comfortable silhouettes from top to bottom to maintain the contemporary relevance of this look. Colour-match dressing feels fresh for autumn/winter 2013. We love the idea of embracing sludgy, forest greens for a radical take on office dressing.

Leather trousers are a major building block of this trend. Equally as versatile as the sweatshirt, we recommend pairing the two staples together for a look that will shift from work to play with a carefully considered footwear change.

The simple, pared-back design of the sweatshirt affords a little room for a playful edge. Inject a sophisticated element of fun into this blank canvas look with our ‘C’est la vie’ slogan sweat. The deep navy and white contrast is likely to complement anything in your existing wardrobe.

Address this era of casual-luxe dressing and pair our smart sweatshirts with sumptuous leather and sharp, oversized accessories for a look that will segue from day to night.

Juxtapose intricate texture with luxe leather for an impeccable post-work look. Crafted from lightweight jersey, our stitch sweat features a trompe l’oeil stitch print creating a modern play on texture. Wear with our Carrot Leg Leather Trouser for a harmonious contrast.
