SETTING THE TONE | WHISTLES AUTUMN WINTER 19
If fashion has become a ‘like’-orientated culture, the modern woman doesn’t care for it. This season ushers in a timeless aesthetic, with a focus on resolutely smart style choices; curated, practical and above-all luxurious.
Warm shades of cinnamon, wine, tobacco, bitter chocolate and mustard sit among neutral tones of navy, black, khaki and grey - anchoring the collection. Strong colours are drenched from head-to-toe and remixed with unexpected textures, creating confident monochromatic looks.
A buttery leather prairie skirt the colour of wet clay has a 70s undertone when paired with a turtleneck in an almost identical hue, while corduroy trousers in fawn get up-specced by a shearling jacket and cashmere jumper in complementary butterscotch shades.
The play-off between the feminine and masculine creates an epicene silhouette that is fresh for the season. Military fatigues, razor-sharp tailoring and hiking boots are teamed with soft sweaters, demi-sheer jersey and elegant overcoats.
Hair is loosely pulled back, left undone or collar-tucked - softening the overall approach - and bags are worn in an unintended way: see the mock-croc crossbody worn as a lanyard.
Sequins are back on the fashion agenda, but shown in a new guise. The party dress silhouette is relaxed and unstructured, meaning sequins feel dialled-down, unpolished and altogether easier. Prints extend this idea of wearability; a baroque-inspired foiled floral makes a subtle after-dark statement, while recoloured animal motifs in metal and jewel tones remain the prints du jour.
At the core of our DNA is a stringent approach to quality and an emphasis on intelligent design, and this season’s key pieces are a case in point. Exquisite coats, silk slips cut delicately on the bias, deluxe leather separates, Italian cashmere knits and the printed daywear dress - a Whistles signature - are underscored by an ageless, effortless sensibility which ensures they are reached for time and again
