Face the Fall

OCT 03, 2018

Master the art of fashionable florals and military cool this season.

In “A Year of Something New”, there’s no shortage of bold styles to choose from. The new season brims with muted palettes, retro turtlenecks, contemporary checks, daring florals, and military-chic looks. Ready to switch gears and cruise through autumn in style? Check out these au courant ensembles.


Fabulous florals

Flamboyant and unapologetically bold, Alexander McQueen’s Autumn Winter collection brings a cool autumn twist to antique flower patterns. A nod to the Victorian illustrations of English roses, each floral motif has either been hand-embroidered or digitally printed from a painting. From windbreakers to fitted shirts, jogging pants, overcoats, hoodies and T-shirts, these eye-popping petals bloom across the new collection.

A military mood

Giorgio Armani’s FW18 collection feels effortlessly cool with deep, dark tones accenting masculine cuts and patterns. One recurring motif? Military style, appearing everywhere from aviator caps to combat pants, tractor-soled boots, and military-esque trainers. An iteration of this year’s chunky sneaker trend, these aggressive trainers showcase an amalgamation of mesh, suede and durable rubber for an ultra-stealth look.

It’s all about the details in Giorgio Armani’s virile fall collection.


Crazy about checks

A blast from the past, checks are all the rage this season. Bottega Veneta doesn’t just recycle the preppy pattern, but rather incorporates intrecciato checker accents in subtle ways. The brand’s new Atlantic blue calf-leather backpack, for example, comes with contrasting checked straps and side panels, while the Nero dark leather duffle features an orange-checked shoulder strap. Both bags are made with extraordinary Italian handcrafted leather, adding to the timeless appeal.

Eighties nostalgia

Celebrating the “codes of masculine elegance”, CERRUTI 1881’s FW18 collection exudes an air of 80’s nostalgia, most evident in the comeback of the mock neck. With a clean silhouette and muted tones — think black, navy, grey, and mustard — this handsome style can be dressed up with dark leather Oxfords or toned down with trainers.
