HERMES (OPPOSITE PAGE)
A water-resistant jacket with a two-tone quilted finish highlights the way Hermes is riffing off the great outdoors to create refreshing silhouettes this season. Toilbright jacket, cashmere pullover in raspberry cashmere, wool trousers and leather boots, from Hermes.
The brand’s end-of-year collection is like a Greatest Hits series, featuring new iterations of Prada signatures such as black nylon and archival prints like the Kiss illustration on this padded bowling shirt. Polyamide shirt-jacket, wool top and nylon shorts, from Prada.
The anything-goes individualism of New York-inspired refined urban styles such as a glossy-wool check jacket and zebra-print wool jeans. Wool jacket, wool pullover, wool jeans and silk scarf, from Bottega Veneta. Metal sunglasses, from Gentle Monster.
VALENTINO (OPPOSITE PAGE)
Bold abstract motifs such as the tiger print on this overcoat give the house’s latest collection an artsy, streetwearinfluenced edge. Wool coat, wool knit top, wool trousers and leather sneakers, from Valentino.
A quiet palette of deep blues and blacks lets textures – think velvet, wool and faux fur – do the talking. Faux fur and leather coat, poplin shirt, velvet top and wool trousers, from Emporio Armani.
DUNHILL (OPPOSITE PAGE)
Colours like camel and black; boot-cut trousers and down jackets – these sound like retro elements, but the way they are mixed by creative director Mark Weston is pretty darn fresh. Down jacket, down vest and leather trousers, from Dunhill.
GIVENCHY (OPPOSITE PAGE)
Coupled with minimalist black and white, defined details such as a rigid funnel neck and the strong lines of a coat look even more striking. Wool coat, leather top, wool trousers, silver ring and leather boots, from Givenchy. Metal sunglasses, from Gentle Monster.
