A slight chill in the air calls for autumnal layers..
As we bid summer adieu, some of our go-to summer outfits may be needing an extra layer or too. Read on for our top tips on where to browse the latest Autumn/Winter collections on Regent Street and in St James’s.
If you're seeking the ultimate item to keep out the elements, look no further than Arc'teryx - the Canadian clothing brand forged from the mountains. Its new Proton Heavyweight Hoody will keep the cold at bay while letting you breathe and the Gamma Joggers offer lightweight activewear that can stand the test of the great outdoors.
Knitwear, but not as you know it. Boggi Milano offers knitwear with technical fabrics that offer breathability and wrinkle resistance, straight from the mills of Italy. Head to the Jermyn Street store and browse its beautiful range of knitwear, perfect for layering, or shop other new arrivals, such as the cosy Madison sweatshirt jacket and low-key hoodie made using technical cotton.
Italian menswear label Luca Faloni is a candy shop of cashmere. Whether hoodies, cable knits, cardigans, roll necks or other styles, you can pick from multiple colours - meaning it's fine to buy more than one right? Must-haves for this season include a rust silk-cashmere polo that sets off those autumnal hues and a chunky knit cashmere cardigan in hunting green.
Looking to spoil yourself? Look no further than St James’s N.Peal and the cashmere collection which focuses on the monochrome this autumn. Think organic Mongolian cashmere, free from fertiliser and pesticides and available in a huge variety of styles. Our favourites? The woven cashmere gilet and the elegant Elizabeth cashmere tunic.
Wander along pretty Princes Arcade for some autumn fashion ideas. This treasure trove of style is ideal for all sorts of one-of-a-kind seasonal wear, made lovingly from skilled craftspeople. Top picks include Frank boots from Barker shoes and colourful Sneakers 51 from Grenson that are perfect for urban adventures this autumn.
The clue is in the name at Sirplus, a menswear company that uses surplus materials to craft exquisite designs. This season, it’s championing Britain’s history of stylish textiles, from tweed to lambswool in its autumn collection – pick from corduroy suits, try on a Harris tweed Nehru jacket for size and add a few different crew neck colours for any occasion.
Shared outdoor experiences is Snow Peak’s ethos. The Japanese company creates quality pieces that last, so invest in its new TAKBI Chino Trench Coat for a timeless look, or UCCP Quilting Jacket - both looks are rooted in traditional Japanese design and you’ll be set up for many seasons ahead.
