We’ve consulted some of the finest creative minds, of the most well respected retailers to tell us, What is your must have piece of the season ?”
“My favourite piece from AW16 is the khaki wool coach jacket. This is part of our Military Luxe trend and to me, is the perfect fusion of a key trend and the jacket shape of the season. It’s understated and both modern and timeless!”
James Lawrence, ASOS Head of Menswear Design
“Its hard to choose a favourite piece from the collection because this season I have so many, but if I was pushed id have to say it’s the Denim Utility Jacket. Every wardrobe needs a denim jacket but this one is a particular favourite because it transcends from day to night and features utility details which are very on-trend for menswear AW16.”
Jane Shepherdon, CEO WHISTLES.
‘J.Crew has a distinct perspective on tradition and style. What excites me each season is how we explore new proportions, textures, fabrications, washes and details to provide a new view of old-shool ideas… It reframes the classics as modern and fresh again.’
Frank Muytjens, Creative Director, J.Crew
“By working with the best mills in the industry, we have created a collection of the finest coats constructed with the utmost care. Woven from Australian Merino wool, this fabric has been dyed, carded and spun by prestigious British mill Fox Brothers, renowned for their cloth since 1772. Made in Portugal, the coat features a Glen Check pattern and comes half lined, requiring a technical process to achieve a flawless finish inside and out. A slightly oversized silhouette, further details include horn buttons and a natural drape”.
Claire Smith, Head of Design, Jigsaw Menswear.
“The menswear wool navy melange coat is a great piece for autumn winter. The cocooning silhouette is a favourite of mine for outerwear with an updated length and rich texture.”
