Just in

As the season continues, we’re really excited to share a new drop of items with you. In keeping with this year’s colour palettes; red and burgundy feature strongly; as well as khaki and cream. Here’s a round-up of some of the latest styles and outfit ideas to help get those autumn/winter wardrobes sorted. As always, there’s something for everyone.

First up, is Danish brand, Kokoon’s, navy and burgundy striped Amy blouse. Easy to wear, yet super stylish, it can be teamed with leather or silk pants. Throw over a cardigan as it gets colder and team with ankle boots. Israeli brand Sack’s has created a really unique tie-dye blouse, the Marion, which has beautiful beading on each shoulder and comes in two colourways. This you won’t want to cover up!

If it’s something more dressy you’re after, check out Munthe’s Jules blouse and July skirt, perfect worn together for more impact or as separates. This aubergine colour is a fantastic alternative to black and the ruffles add extra detail and interest.

If bright red is more your thing, Kokoon has produced a beautiful silk tunic, cut on the bias, which is flattering and really different from other styles this season. It looks great worn with black DL1961 Riker or Nero Florence jeans and bold accessories.

Moving onto Khaki and cream, there’s plenty to choose from. Kokoon has tapped into the leopard print trend, with a stunning a-line dress and zip trousers. Dress them up or down, the print is a statement in itself.

Look to one of our favourite brands, Swildens, for more beautiful silk and design. The Pyramid dress and Proverb blouse have an exclusive digitally printed feather design. Both work well for a night out or as a luxurious work option. And worn with the Pakita jacket, you’re ready to go. It’s this season’s go to jacket for any occasion; and lifts any outfit. Buy it to add a touch of sparkle and glamour. It’s a no brainer!

Cashmere collection

One of the most prudent investments a woman can make in her winter wardrobe is in quality cashmere; lightweight and most importantly warm this is a luxury item that earns its place year in and year out. Our AW16 cashmere collection includes iconic cashmere brands 360ºSweater, Duffy and Cocoa Cashmere and covers a broad swathe of colour options.

How you wear cashmere is a personal choice, we like to wear ours slightly fitted for layering or for smarter occasions and then go slightly oversized for those relaxed weekends spent at home with the family. This can be the difference between buying your regular size or choosing to size up or down depending on your preference.

We love the natural slubs in 360ºSweater’s Dakota knit. The black is speckled with off white yarn while the grey has multi-coloured neon flecks.

New York brand Duffy has knocked it out of the park again with the AW16 collection. Featuring asymmetric hems, zippered backs and their signature stripe on the back of their sweaters.

Transitional styles to wear now

It can be challenging at this time of year to buy things for ‘now’, that will also last you throughout the season. There’s nothing more annoying than seeing something unworn hanging in your wardrobe for weeks on end. You want to be sure you’re investing in items that can help the transition from these beautiful final days of summer, to the chillier months. The trick is layering, as well as finding things that can be worn with or without knits and tights; sandals and boots. Here are a few top items on our list this season that incorporate the key colour trends, from silk tops to cosy knits:
