This season, invest in key pieces that work with everything you already have, and want.
Return of the Mac
If our summer was anything to go by, our autumn is set to be a wet one. So, update your wardrobe with a time-honoured staple: the trusty raincoat. Make sure to avoid the bright yellow mackintoshes of old and opt for a minimalist style instead. The Kooples and Hackett offer moody palettes of olives, blacks and greys, while you can count on Paul Smith to inject some personality into a key style piece. Elsewhere BOSS, with the help of Thor actor and brand ambassador Chris Hemsworth, has a range of relaxed-fit macs to protect you from whatever the weather has in store.
Watch This Space
Inspired by its diving watches of the 1950s, Tudor’s Black Bay Fifty-Eight collection at David M Robinson is perfect for vintage enthusiasts. Bremont and Goldsmiths have an equally covetable range of timepieces.
The Denim Edit
Marcus Rashford plays for the England football team, he has an MBE, and campaigns against racism, homelessness and child hunger. So, when we see him wearing double denim, it only seems right to follow suit. What’s more, his campaign with Levi’s encourages us to ‘buy better’ and ‘wear longer’ to save the planet. Denim is the hardiest textile out there, so match your Levi’s jeans with a jacket from The Kooples or opt for a subtler take on the trend with a buttery-soft Massimo Dutti shirt and blue-on-blue New Balance trainers.
The recent climate change report has forced us all to think about how we live our lives. We need to act fast to stop the planet heating up, and every little helps. With this in mind, Canary Wharf retailers have come together to create a more sustainable future. BOSS is striking new ground with its innovative materials, such as using pineapple leaf fibres; GANT upcycles and recycles factory materials from previous seasons to create new designs, as seen in its Heavy Rugger shirts; and Orlebar Brown is working to establish mangrove and sea kelp forests to offset carbon emissions.
