Theparade of block colours continues in abundance for the forthcoming A/W season, and as well as the brash brights, a series of subtler hues were seen across the runways. Wine, the smarter cousin to red, was extremely popular, appearing everywhere from Liam Hodges to Issey Miyake to Maharishi, who went all out with combos of burgundy, claret and ruby red.
Wine achieved hero status for the fact that it suited almost every conceivable fabric, smart or casual…Christopher Raeburn proved just how well wine works with knitwear, showing chunky scarves and fisherman knit jumpers; Marni topped their trainers with oxblood leather; Paul Smith cut coats in soft shearling; and Tiger of Sweden sent us high-shine satin bombers.[URIS id=62229]
HOW TO GET THE LOOK…
Normally a colour associated with the smarter end of the sartorial spectrum, wine looks just as good on sportswear…..it gives a luxe update, so be on the look out for deep red sweats. Of course, a crisp shirt or a sharp pair of trousers introduced into an otherwise monochrome outfit is just as effective.
