Q&A Sophie Holt
What are the top Menswear trends for Autumn 2016?
A major trend is what we’re calling City Gym this season where sports-styling has a strong influence on design and it’s not just aimed at weekend dressing. Looks are kept modern with crewnecks, quilted sweats, joggers, suede sneakers, tech fabrics and lots of slouchy silhouettes.
What menswear looks do you feel are timeless?
I think a crisp chambray shirt paired with a tailored pant in tonal blues is always a timeless look.
What colour palette should men look out for this season?
This season there’s a focus on tonal dressing in either head-to-toe blue or grey, with a pop of rust in the mix.
