Poetry of Autumn

As we head into the winter months, it is imperative to invest in what many regard as ‘The Great Coat’. This will be your biggest sartorial asset for the season and the item in which you will be seen most often in public between now and the start of spring. There are a host of forms to choose from this winter, many of which will work well in the office as well as at the weekend. From the utilitarian value of a goose down parka, to the classic single-breasted over coat, or the elegance of a double-breasted guards coat, opt for a style and colour that compliments your office attire, whatever the dress code.

This double-breasted peak lapel coat by Dries Van Noten ticks all the boxes to be perfectly on trend, practical and an aesthetic statement. Its tactile blend of wool, alpaca and mohair is guaranteed to keep you warm on chilly winter evenings whilst the olive satin-twill lining ensures it layers smoothly and easily over tees and knitwear. A camel overcoat is ideal for anyone who values timeless style.

Knitted in Italy from a slub wool and alpaca blend, Lanvin’s fine-gauge sweater is a great example of relaxed winter dressing. Perfect for layering over shirts, tees and roll necks, its muted stripes of terracotta, navy and charcoal add a statement to any outfit and look good teamed with indigo denim or navy chinos.

For an easy alternative to traditional smart trousers or chinos, look no further than this drawstring pair from Acne Studios. The elasticated waistband and internal drawstring gives them a laid-back look, yet the wool and mohair blend slim fit shape offers clean lines that will work with a variety of pieces.
