FUR COAT by Raf Simons
Earlier in the season we showcased the growing animal-print trend within menswear. For winter, fur is the obvious extension of this, and the innovative Belgian designer offers a unique take on this classic shape coat. Business on the front and a party in the back; we have matched the flash of dyed yellow on the rear with darker colours to make it stand out all the more. Finally, we styled the jacket with an A. Sauvage button-down Oxford shirt, to continue the sharp minimalism that defines Raf’s work.
BOMBER JACKET by Stone Island Shadow Project
The bomber jacket is a time-honoured classic, and here it has been given the full Stone Island Shadow treatment. Made in Italy to the brand's exacting standard, the jacket comes from the AUGMENT section of Stone Island Shadow's PARSEQ performance grid, meaning it provides unparalleled warmth. Mixing technical and streetwear influences, we have styled it with a White Mountaineering baseball cap, relaxed Acne jeansx, and bold Rick Owens trainers.
QUILTED JACKET by Undercover
While quilting is a recurring theme at the moment, it is unusual to find a quilted jacket with a formal cut. Yet, such innovations shouldn't be a surprise when they come from Undercover designer Jun Takahashi. The lapels on this quilted jacket give it a formal feel, and we styled it with a bright floral shirt to complement the slight metallic sheen of the fabric.
PUFFA JACKET by Paul Smith
This puffa jacket from Paul Smith might well be the plump cousin of the quilted jacket above. Similarly incorporating elements of tailoring and formal cuts, the jacket has a beautiful shape, with an interesting high collar. We have styled it with a bold, printed Christopher Shannon shirt to give the outfit a little lift.
SHOW PIECE by Maison Martin Margiela
Certainly a look for the more adventurous dressers, this highfalutin piece from Maison Martin Margiela is straight off the runway. Inspired by the billowing shape and texture of black bin bags, this unique piece is also incredibly warm, as it is stuffed with insulating goose down.
DOUBLE-BREASTED JACKET by Raf Simons
Cut slim and slightly long, Raf's take on a classic double-breasted jacket comes in a typically rich colour. As you would expect from Raf, traditional elements, such as the front button closure, are slightly subverted to present a modern take on a classic. We have styled the jacket with Margiela trousers and Chuck-Taylor-style trainers to further dress down what could be an uptight formal piece.
