Shrugging off its old school connotations, corduroy’s rich textures give key pieces a tactile edge. From block colour overshirts and casual trousers, to easy co-ords and a fresh take on the suit, new iterations come by way of Maison Margiela, Barena and YMC.
Think pink is feminine? Well, think again. Get ready to reclaim pink as the ultimate rock’n’roll colour as brands including Acne Studios, Sies Marjan and Maison Margiela deliver everything from casual tees, to smart shirting and performance outerwear.
When it comes to outerwear, the message is go big… or don’t go out at all. Puffers and streetwear styles come with the promise of performance fabrications, setting you up for every seasonal endeavor. Look to Rick Owens, Snow Peak and Moncler for style-focused pieces you’ll call on for years to come.
