If you love luxury brands as much as high street favourites, when it comes to finding them all under one roof, there’s no better place to visit in London than Canary Wharf
At the onset of autumn, our thoughts turn – for the first time in months – to coats and capes, gloves and hats, as well as work wear as suitable for the office as it is for Zoom calls. The shops are filling with fantastic new pieces and Reiss, in Jubilee Place mall, sets the tone with its knife-pleat, metallic midiskirt and men’s wool-blend blouson jacket – both seasonal statements. Zara, located in Cabot Place, is as brilliant as ever when it comes to stylish essentials that look great now, and last.
In Jubilee Place mall, a coterie of luxe French brands have pulled out all the stops for their AW20 womenswear collections. A caped trench is a key look this season and Sandro Paris’ version is smart and versatile in equal measure, in a light khaki with a removable yoke. Maje’s spectacular silver sequin top is doubly on trend thanks to its voluminous sleeves and cocktail blouse style, and Claudie Pierlot is ‘Back in Town’ with second skin leather, cosy knits and androgynous suits; an autumn standout is its zebra striped pullover.
Over in Canada Place, The Kooples team is ready to kit men and women out this season in modern tailoring, black wardrobe staples and timeless leather. For ladies, big sleeves, trench coats and bold floral prints reign supreme, and the new Kooples bags are in store now, in shades ranging from mint green to pillar-box red. Kate Spade New York (Jubilee Place) is home to every accessory you could want, all designed with New York flair, while accessories and clothing brand Coach (Cabot Place) is championing ‘The things that matter most’ this season, which include bags for both sexes of all styles, colours and shapes.
In Cabot Place, men can stock up on everything they need to replenish and refresh their wardrobes. Paul Smith’s new collection, as contemporary and colourful as ever, boasts statement T-shirts, neutral sweaters with pops of colour and on-brand striped gloves. At Massimo Dutti, its outerwear offering is particularly strong this season, and everyday comfort is king – shop suede jackets, Herringbone wool coats and quilted down jackets. For smart yet snazzy suits, head to BOSS, stocking a new orange number as well as a classic grey pinstripe and a navy check.
When it comes to kitting out their feet, men can do no better than renowned British brand Crockett & Jones, a specialist in high quality footwear since 1879, and the place to go if you’re after leather or rubber soled shoes, Oxfords, loafers, slippers or boots. And from shoes to swimming: if the name Orlebar Brown makes you think of statement swimming shorts, you’d be right, but pay the store in Jubilee Place a visit to discover that its new collection also boasts technical jackets, shirts and knitwear in autumnal fabrics and colours.
And for those whose minds are focused on fitness year-round, lululemon – known for its high-tech, long-lasting fabrics – is ready to welcome both men and women and advise you on the best kit for everything from yoga and swimming to hiking and tennis. Sweaty Betty, also in Jubilee Place, is ideal for modern fitness essentials that will work as hard you do.
So there’s no time like the present; shop the new collections in Canary Wharf now. Across five spacious, undercover shopping malls – Cabot Place, Canada Place, Jubilee Place, Churchill Place and Crossrail Place – browse an impressive selection of fashion brands, from high street favourites to high-end luxury, with styles to suit everyone.
