Pantone might have declared greenery as the colour of the year, but London’s top designers went with a completely different hue. Purple, ruled the shows with models dressed head-to-toe in the extremely rich yet superbly tricky colour. From Miharayasuhiro’s cropped overall in deep aubergine and Katie Eary’s gecko printed T-shirt, to Cottweiler’s pairing of chinos with a track jacket, and Christopher Shannon’s leather-detailed sweatsuit, this is definitely going to be your new go-to colour for off-duty gear.
Here’s something you might already be a master at. But it’s time you unlearned everything you know about colour blocking, and re-learn the new ways to do it. As seen in the shows of Topman Design, Agi & Sam, Christopher Shannon and J.W.Anderson, the trick to ace the trend next season is to pick a single piece with multiple hues on it. So, look for jackets, T-shirts, jog pants, and shoes with cut-and-sew, contrast detailing, and ombré shading.
Bought a lot of leather this winter? Well, you’re in luck. This cold-weather grunge trend will continue to be big through Autumn-Winter 2017. Of course, you’re going to see a lot more of leather jackets around you — with shearling details, as an overcoat, or a hoodie — as seen in the shows of MAN, Topman Design and Miharayasuhiro. We suggest experimenting with leather trousers in the style of Agi & Sam. But if you’re not such a leather person, we’ll be okay if you just stock up on some shoes! The chunkier, the better.
