This week, we are looking at classic wardrobe pieces that have been reimagined for the contemporary wardrobe. From the overcoat in rich wine colours, to the jumper in new proportions and the trousers in softer shades, this round up shows that there’s still plenty of room for bold design, fun details and pushing boundaries.
Olive: Looking Good Feeling Wine
As we transition from winter into spring, this overcoat makes the perfect investment piece. The oversized fit and slightly dropped shoulder means this coat is great for layering, and its understated design and rich wine colour lends it to both casual and formal dressing.
Gucci: Nautical Nuances
Breton stripes are a timeless pattern, with a long nautical heritage. Italian brand Gucci plays on this on their navy and white tee by adding a heart and dagger crest, reminiscent of a sailor’s tattoo, embellished with golden beads. It’s a fun detail on a wardrobe must-have.
Burberry: Cable Comforts
Luxury brand Burberry are renowned for their innovative approach to classic British style. They’ve taken the traditional cable knitted jumper and toyed with a slouched fit and displaced hems, giving this a more relaxed and well-worn look. It’s the ideal piece for crisp mornings and long evenings.
Topman: Dressed to Twill
These tailored twill trousers come in a beautiful pastel blue colour, adding softer colours to your office wardrobe without compromising its formality. The trousers can be paired with the matching jacket for the full look, or worn on their own.
CMMN SWDN: Dusty Denim
Swedish-British street brand CMMN SWDN takes the denim jacket and reimagines the rebel staple in dusty pink. They’ve given it a more boxy shape and cropped fit. Even with all the renovations, this piece is an instant classic.
