Headphones are essential to life in London. How else can you survive bus journeys wedged in beside heavy breathing Giant Haystacks or avoid the life history of the mobile phone pest behind you? And now your headphones can match not only your outfit but also that glorious podcast you’re listening to now that music is essentially free.
With the sun constantly teasing us in the UK, it’s about time we started looking at Autumn/Winter collections. First up will be APC, who have a distinctly winter-sailor feeling, continuing on from their SS collection. They also surprisingly make Ugg-like boots look wearable. Check after the jump for more looks and accessories.
If, for some bizarre reason, you haven’t hopped onto the Madras train yet we are still offering alternatives. Alternatives that don’t stray outside of the nautical look, but alternatives nonetheless.
Trench coats aren’t hard to come by nowadays but relaxed trenches are another story. You may have been swayed the Phillip Lim trench we featured – until you saw the price. Don’t worry, This B Store trench is more affordable and, dare I say it, better quality.
Bags are usually available in muted tones as people seek to match it with as many items as possible. In those times when you want a bit of colour contrast you may need a bag that stands out a little more. That’s where this Steven Alan bag comes in.
With big bold checks being all the rage, it can be easy to forget about the subtler check shirt. This Filippa K shirt has checks so small they’re near invisible from a distance. The matching options with this shirt are vast, as it’s smart enough to wear to a (casual) office and could also fit in well with the nautical theme, should you be wishing to take on that look this summer.
Whilst leather bags are great and all, there’s just something very un-summery about them. The material is pretty heavy and doesn’t cope with hot weather very well. Canvas, on the other hand, is a lighter material and copes much better in the sun. If you’ve been trying to complete a couple of looks, then look no further this Penfield oxon bag.
When stylists create looks, they often make
un-wearable pieces workable. This trick of the eye usually leads to a
collection full of underwhelming individual pieces and great looks. A.P.C avoid
this problem with their nautical-themed S/S 2008 collection. As well as having
eye catching overall looks, the collections also full of wearable individual
pieces. The pick of the bunch is this leather
strapped weekend bag.
