This season comfort is officially king! Looking at the AW20 trends, it’s almost as if designers knew something was coming to change our lives dramatically. Cosy layering, carpet inspired dresses and loose tailoring all set the scene for a relaxed wardrobe that allows us to feel our best at home. Whether they had a crystal ball or not, we’re grateful for the trends coming through!
One of our favourites has to be the quilting trend which wrapped itself around the runways at all the major Fashion Weeks. In New York, we saw Coach deliver the look on a beige leather jacket, whilst Burberry in London offered up a quilted jacket that still felt effortlessly sophisticated. Over in Milan, Salvatore Ferragamo delivered the ultimate in "duvet dressing" with perfectly puffy looks, whilst Versace kept it glam and sexy with a sporty quilted skirt.
Pre-pandemic we may have seen the quilted coat as a chilly weather essential – something we had to throw on when life forced us to commute to the office in the depths of winter. Post-pandemic, as many of us work from home and we can literally stay under a real blanket, the quilting trend has evolved to keep us cosy but with an air of chicness that makes us want to get back out there. We’re ready for the elements as a new season dawns, but we want to look stylish when we battle it.
If you’re eager to get the look then test drive these perfect pieces from our new collection and get ready to bring that snug style to your wardrobe.
Pretty In Patsy
Our Patsy skirt is the padded mini you need to keep you warm, comfy and chic in equal measure. Cut in a flattering A-line shape with lightly padded panels and a tassel style zip pull to the side, it’s a versatile piece that will update any look. Pair with trainers and keep it casual for the weekend or dress up with a pair of barely there heels to transform your outfit for drinks in the evening.
Act Up In Akari
A padded jacket with a twist. The Akari Coat is the perfect cover up for those seeking to nail the trend whilst keeping it feeling modern. With its kimono shape, large pockets and a deep V necked collar, the cut is effortlessly contemporary. Available in navy or light grey with gold metal trim fastenings for added shine. Wear with jeans and a sweatshirt for dressed down days or throw over your favourite little black dress and knee-high boots to keep you warm as things heat up on date night.
