Orange, deep red, brown and mustard dominated the runways and are worthwhile additions to next winter’s wardrobe. Take inspiration from Margaret Howell and Burberry Prorsum and pair these colours with black, or go for a tone-on-tone look like Oliver Spencer. Think beyond pullovers and jackets and look for trousers and even accessories in these shades. 

An offshoot of the first trend, orange and brown was seen not just in clothes but also bags, portfolios and other accessories. From Burberry Prorsum’s tan satchel, to Oliver Spencer’s deep brown holdall, and Coach’s pop-orange sling bag, it’s time to go slick, simple and functional. Look for pieces that contrast the two colours together.

For the last couple of seasons, florals took over menswear and were seen in everything from jackets and sweatshirts to trousers, backpacks and shoes. Prints continue to embrace nature, but now move away from pretty flowers to dark vegetation. Think plants, tree barks, and dried leaves as seen on collections by Topman Design and Tiger of Sweden.

After seasons of pop-coloured shoes and vibrantly printed ones, footwear is moving back to the basics. Time to bring out the neutrals. Think white, grey, brown and black, just the colours you have always known for footwear. From Christopher Raeburn’s boots, to E. Tautz derby shoes and Agi & Sam’s trainers, these neutral shades are adopting every footwear style out there.

Grunge, biker and punk lovers have a reason to look forward to AW16. Metal detailing on shoes were seen on models by Nasir Mazhar, MAN and Burberry Prorsum. Look for big metallic eyelets, chunky toe detailing and grunge chains and buckles on trainers. It’s time to load up on the hardware.
