Hello, October. Now that autumn has well and truly arrived, our attention has been drawn to the new-season accessories that promise a smooth, stylish transition into the colder months of the year. From sought-after scarves to the ‘it’ bags of AW18, here’s your first look at this month’s latest arrivals…
1. Cold-Weather Cool
The breeze picks up as we enter the month of October, making it the perfect time to indulge in the cold-weather classics of AW18. This season, take note of blanket scarves in super-soft textures, opting for bold, bright shades that’ll lift the look of your winter coat with little effort. And as for the hats? While baker-boy caps and berets continue to be the clear favourites of the London street style set, pom-pom beanies are still retaining their style relevance.
2. Jewel Tones
As the cold weather takes hold, so too does our natural affinity towards rich jewel tones. From deep emeralds to opulent amethysts, gemstone palettes create a more decadent feel which bodes well with the darker disposition of the new season. Find them on luxe leather bags and cross-body designs to wear around the clock, and take your pick from plain, printed and cool colour-block styles.
3. Check Out
Much like animal print, checks are also dominating our new-season wardrobes. Although traditional tartans are not to be forgotten, AW18’s answer to the runway favourite comes in the shape of oversized checks in brighter colour combinations, making for a far more eclectic look. Want an easy way into the trend? A statement winter scarf provides the perfect introduction.
4. Hand-Painted Florals
Introducing the floral print that refuses to follow the crowd. Hand-painted by our team of talented in-house designers, October’s bold blooms combine petal-soft pinks with dark, leafy backdrops, creating styles that feel perfectly apt for autumn and winter. Watch them flourish on neckerchiefs, new-season bags and essential travel accessories.
