Tailored Prep

Mix sharp tailoring with fresh, feminine touches — a flash of bare skin, an unexpected ruffled cuff — for an aura of understated cool. Suiting doesn’t mean boring — work textural fabrics like tweed and sculptural knits into your new season look or try a little pattern-play. Checks, stripes and logos are all fair game.

Springtime Romance

Feminine, romantic but with a rebellious edge, this season it’s the prettiest pieces that make the boldest statement. Pairing floral prints with ultra-modern pumps or bold, sculptural jewellery makes the trend feel fresh again.

Western Spirit

Organic, earthy details meet thoroughly modern silhouettes: go West, but go your own way. Look to summer-ready fabrics like silk, lace or anything sheer, or go a little maximalist with frills, studs, pattern and ruffles.     

Colour Curator

Near-neon hues and exhilarating silhouettes — this is the new way to do colour-blocking. Statement shades need little in the way of embellishment so keep the rest of your look simple — a sleek pump or a pair of narrow profile sunglasses is all you need to make the look sing.

From sportswear details to modern graphic elements, look to contemporary, relaxed pieces to shift your wardrobe from formal to functional. If in doubt, invest in a great pair of sneakers – they’ll take you from office to afterhours in style.

Spring Suiting

Saturated colours, up-tempo accessories and bold experimentation set an invigorating mood for spring style. Swap out sombre hues for splashes of colour, micro-prints and playful accessories and keep things feeling casual with relaxed silhouettes and streetwear details.

Retro Fit

Introduce a splash of nostalgia with all-logo-everything, throwback denim and ultra relaxed fits. From old school staples like bomber jackets and classic sneakers to every iteration of retro denim, this trend raids the streets — and pulls it all together with quality fabrication and a keen eye for fit.
