With the chill in the air confirming that Autumn is indeed upon us, our Head of Design, Emma Farrow, takes us through her reference points and inspiration behind our Autumn collection; whilst Finery Brand Director, Caren Downie, gives a quick fire round up of the pieces she’ll be adding to her wardrobe.
"This unexpected fabric is not just for the Christmas party so don't save it; unleash it all year round and work it into everyday looks - it's much more versatile than you think!"
"Historical references have filtered into our collective psyche as part of the prolonged 'Downton' effect, making the statement sleeve this season's hero - look for oversized puffs on exaggerated cuffs, and show you're in the know."
"There's a new guard of designers breaking all the rules - so exciting - bringing the best bits from the '90s and reimagining them for now, like mismatched prints and fabrics in one garment... our take comes through on the Bubble Ferns dress."
"Following on from summer hailing shoulders as the new erogenous zone, elegant peek-a-boo cutouts make their way into unusual places on knits and jersey pieces."
"Weather-ready layers give you simple, effortless options to pair with your favourite pieces, be that tailoring, dresses or jumpsuits - perfect for when it feels like there are four seasons in one day."
Wraps And Straps
"This styling is everywhere; from big bows to hanging harnesses and waist wraps to lace-up loops - it brings feminine detail to trusted silhouettes, and accentuates shape on shirt dresses or necklines on jersey tees."
Heritage Made Modern
"Technical application and textile innovation are turning traditional fabrics upside-down - expect to see tweed and houndstooth like you never have before."
Corset Out Of The Closet
"It's back. And looking good layered over almost everything, especially in relaxed fabrics over dresses and t-shirts - think of it as your accessory for the season. Trust us on this one."
“This is a modernised, deco-inspired piece, with floral details in unexpected metals, reinventing a jewellery box classic.”
Kristan Leather Sling Back Shoe
“The essential block heel with its metallic coating gives rise to tough, studded strapping and animal-skin embossed leather, contrasted by a delicate pointy toe."
Valetta Graphic Cat Dress
“Surprising pops of colour flash through the most feminine of shirt dresses with a graphic example of oversized animal print.”
“Dress down formality and relax traditional tailoring with baby dogtooth fabric in a jumpsuit silhouette, accentuating the waist with exaggerated rear cinching.”
