Never have winter coats been so exciting or offered such a visual treat – wear black all season, and you’ll still make a statement. Gone is military uniformity, symmetry and blending and say hello to loose cuts, colour and freedom of expression.

But be prepared for the odd gem that’s breaks the rule…

Because this year, there are no rules…

Wow!

 

Maybe it’s because they don’t have boobs. Maybe it’s because their clothes are more of a uniform with less choice. Maybe it’s because layering is something they’ve always done. But heck, when men get it right, they smoke.

I want some of what they got.

The fickle winds of fashion never stop blowing raspberries; Not long ago I was reading about the terminal death of the short-sleeved jacket and I remember thinking the very act of writing those words was probably like a summoning of the phoenix from the ashes, because the thing about hates is that they have a tendency to come around again….and just a little change can make a radical shift in emphasis.

Never say never.

It’s a wrap..

Who thought granny squares could look so chic? Or the joy of vintage and handmade mashed so beautifully into lustful street style? Bring on the most wanted piece this winter..

Love, look and laugh. Hopefully coming to a charity shop near you..

How radical to see them all being worn. Sign of the times hashtag-commonsense.

The mirror in which we see ourselves is warped – so why not pull the lines a little bit more?

So thinks Paper London, a fashion brand that imbues simplicity as it’s backbone and strong architectural lines, it’s war cry.

How cool and clever? Asymmetrical, flattering and pulls the eye to a different point of interest.

A fashion label that knows what it thinks.

Snuggly does it..

I looked out the window this morning and just for a fraction of a second thought it was snowing, except it was the last of the leaves caught in a gust and spiralling downwards.  But it’s that sort of time now when evenings draw in early and the weather sits like a duvet over the house, dictating minimal movement. The plus side is the need for comfort – good food, hot drinks, roaring fires and of course, soft, encompassing textures, some of which you can take outside with you, a bit like taking your house out for the day…

Bring it on.

Trans-seasonal x

So here’s the thing – weather in London, in September – particularly this year – is unpredictable.  If the sun does make an appearance there’s the flash of late summer burn, but just as easily the sun can disappear in an instant to be replaced by a cold wind and threatening clouds.  What to do? One solution are the 2-in-one coats from Arket.  Surprisingly simply yet remarkably flexible they’re an unfussy solution to an autumn – and potentially winter – dilemma.

The clever puffa-slash-underjacket comes in a choice of long sleeves…

Or vest.

 

I will be trying both the mens and the womens before making a decision.
