Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today? Start the new season as you mean to go on with the Autumn/Winter 2019 trends you can put to work immediately.
Autumn’s colour palette is something of a grey area. Literally. At Dior Homme, Kim Jones put the steely hue front and centre of his vision. Elsewhere, Maison Margiela and Jil Sander cut contemporary tailoring in fifty shades of concrete, slate and pewter. Think of this as your new neutral: bonus points for tone-on-tone layering.
Sneakers are the gift that keeps on giving – and AW19’s acid-bright kicks boast more than enough chutzpah to put a spring in your step. Where Off-White balances the scene with ivory or black, adidas originals puts pedal to metal with its full fluoro running shoes. Consider them the highlight of your footwear arsenal.
Masters of minimalism, look away now. Grandma’s got her mitts on our knitwear collection this season – and the result is bold, bright and decidedly tongue-in-chic. For method in the madness, look no further than Gucci’s zany intarsia.
"Where there’s wool, there’s a way. Let loose your inner prep, and swap sweaters for an oversized cardigan."
New To Harrods: Craig Green
A leading light of London’s menswear vanguard, Craig Green pushes the limits of what’s possible in design. "Green’s fabric innovation and surface embellishments are exceptional," remarks Head of Menswear, Simon Longland, of the AW19 collection. Expect deconstructed worker jackets, utility trousers and beautifully crafted basics.
