AW17

Buy it now: Prada craft class



Prada menswear aw17 by Virginia Arcaro

Prada’s retro arty AW17 collection has arrived online. These men’s hand knits jumped off the screen the first time I saw them back in January, an example of Miuccia Prada’s yearning for “reality, normality, simplicity”.

The naive still life painted jumpers and shirts are another symbol of hand work, taking time for painterly pursuits or maybe just a nice glass of wine! The women’s loafers and leather bomber below remind me of my art scchool days (501s, a bowling shirt from Flip and leather loafers), but they’re classics that have stood the test of time.

We have been lucky to experience some unseasonably warm weather in the UK lately. I did a shoot in windswept Whitstable yesterday armed with HeatTech and cashmere scarves but it was blissfully mild. But a cold snap is a-coming and these craftsy knits are waiting conveniently in the wings…

Gentlewoman style: Uniqlo U AW17



Uniqlo U autumn-winter 2017

The Uniqlo U AW17 collection has started to arrive in stores and online (the U.S has it already and the UK will get it at 8am on Thursday) and it’s always good to see how Christophe Lemaire marries classic ‘LifeWear’ with seasonal colours and silhouettes.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as someone who follows trends, there are always certain tendencies that capture the public’s imagination and take hold for more than a season. Volume and padded protection are two that have seen more than a couple of winters now. The beautiful Uniqlo U blue padded coat manages to look comfortable and luxe here; hopefully the same will be true IRL. The outerwear is definitely the strongest category from Uniqlo U; I also really like the hooded trench number and the double-face wrap camel coat.

Colour-wise, it’s about that rich camel, the rust reds, the deep blue and lots of cream and khaki. Again, these are classic neutrals that happen to be knocking about in fashion right now. Which is a good thing because if you like them, there are more of them around. Corduroy is another right-for-now trend that suits Uniqlo U and I can see these brick red cords selling fast. (Also worth noting: the stand collar long sleeve shirt dress from summer is back.)

Burberry’s Brits



Burberry aw17
What did everyone make of the Burberry show last week? I loved it! After the initial buzz of the evening wore off, I canvassed some fashion industry opinion, and found the reactions to be 50/50 mixed. While Burberry is very much in favour of opening up Fashion Week to the wider public with its shop-the-runway model, in many ways I think you need to be there IRL to feel the full impact of the shows.

Topshop AW17 campaign



TOPSHOP AW17

It’s the Topshop Unique day today at LFW and I’m really into the grown up vibe of Topshop‘s current collection. Highlights: the rigid dark denim, winter floral shirt, embellished slingbacks and fringed tailored trousers, all beautifully styled by Kate Phelan in this campaign shot by Giampaolo Sgura. (more…)
