How To Shop AW19

What do cocktail dresses, Savile Row and leather have in common? Must-try status for Autumn/Winter 2019. Tune in: these are the trends to invest in now for the season ahead.

Cocktail Hour

Day-to-night dressing this is not. But we won’t be keeping cocktails to an hour either. Revel in the season’s divine carnival of polka dots, ruffles, lace and tulle; rich metallics at Paco Rabanne and opulent silks at Alessandra Rich. Dressing to impress is back with a vengeance. Now’s the time to shine.

Suits You

Few things command R-E-S-P-E-C-T like an exquisitely cut suit. Burberry and Max Mara delivered some of this season’s finest examples: two-piece sets that combine the very best fabrics with timeless tailoring and a meticulous eye for detail. Savile Row in standard, yet elegantly feminine.

In Proportion

Silhouette-wise, AW19 looks set to be quite the balancing act. Think a voluminous sleeve coupled with a nipped-in waistline, or bauble-like earrings counterpointed by a modest heel under foot. Our golden rule? Opposites attract.

Bags Of Practicality

Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director Daniel Lee – a Phoebe Philo protégé - helms the renaissance of practical handbags. The heritage maison has championed totes as roomy as they are refined – and it’s not the only one. Chloé’s new Aby Lock bag is an icon in the making, too.

Luxe Leather

Sported as dresses, coats, trousers and skirts, leather was the ubiquitous 'second skin' among AW19 show-goers and the collections alike. Nanushka and Stella McCartney batted for deliciously buttery faux separates; meanwhile, Brunello Cucinelli sourced the finest Italian hide for outerwear that will last you a lifetime.
