Seasonal Layering Pieces
Cooler climes are fast approaching which means it’s time for you to forget about those easy-breezy summer styles in favour of something more substantial. Given the precarious nature of British weather, we recommend stocking up on plenty of layering pieces for the purpose of a rainy day. The good news for you is that we’ve recently found ourself in possession of several stellar layering must-haves. Check out some of our favourites for the AW20 season below, we’re positive they won’t disappoint.
Ami Funnel Neck Sweater
Made with love in Portugal, this slouchy knit arrives courtesy of Alexandre Mattiussi’s Parisian label, Ami. Sure to be a great addition to your winter rotation, it’s crafted from pure wool which means it’s guaranteed to feel super-soft on the skin. An intricate intarsia knitting technique has been employed at the chest to articulate the brand’s statement-making ‘Ami de Coeur’ logo while oversized trims frame the neckline, cuffs and hem for a snug and extra-defined fit.
Canada Goose Freestyle Crew Vest
A contemporary update on a classic Canada Goose design – the brand’s iconic Freestyle Crew Vest is realised here in a striking camouflage colourway. Boasting slightly slimmer proportions than the original, this reworked rendition is ideal for gliding over autumnal base layers. It’s constructed with an 80/20 duck down ratio, in turn, offering the wearer a superlatively thermal silhouette. Functional add ons include a shielding zip closure with storm flap, two suede-lined handwarmer pockets, a draping of sumptuous suede to the inner collar, complete with branded CG accents fixed throughout.
Logomania is alive and well for Autumn Winter 20 as Moncler has so boldly testified with this cosy offering. Dubbed the ‘Maglia’ fleece, the beauty of this eye-catching design is that it’s reversible which means you’re actually receiving two looks for the price of one. Prepped to switch up your style within a moment’s notice, opt to embrace its emblazoned side if you’re in the mood for making a statement, meanwhile, a pared-back black shell sits subtly underneath for a more pared-back approach. Extra details include a rubberised Moncler plaque, two-way zipper and a set of handwarmer pockets.
Patagonia 3 in 1 Parka
A favourite with adventure seekers and city-goers alike, Patagonia’s 3 in 1 parka is designed to withstand the test of time. Certain to breeze through a plethora of harsh weather conditions, its hybrid construction deems it appropriate for any autumn-winter outing you have planned as it can be worn a total of three ways. You can choose to wear this design as a waterproof shell, as a padded coat or as an insulating parka. Boasting a mountaineering level of storm protection, the outer shell features a protective zip/snap fastening and four front pockets for keeping your possessions safe. The inner liner is quilted to boost the jacket’s thermal aptitude while two further pockets are featured at the waist with a snug serving of fleece internally. Thanks to the fusion of both these components, a warming parka is presented as the third and final option.
Stone Island Chambers Jacket
Donning a muted mauve colourway, the Stone Island Chambers jacket will be a superb companion for braving the colder months with. True to the brand’s cutting-edge philosophy, this outerwear piece utilises a fairly fresh and innovative down filling technique, whereby feather padding is directly injected into chambers within the silhouette – allowing the wearer to seamlessly harness heat across the entire upper body. Garment dyed in Stone Island’s special colour recipes, it’s then safeguarded with an anti-drop finish and signed off with the label’s sought-after compass patch.
APC Seb Down Jacket
Crafted with sustainability in mind, APC’s Seb jacket welcomes an eco-conscious and wholly dependably aesthetic; thanks to its all-black colourway, the design can be easily paired with most ensembles. Both water repellent and windproof, it’s capable of conquering wet and windy conditions, while it’s diamond-quilted, down fill construction ensures the highest standard of thermal wealth. A zip closure and storm flap, alongside two cosy side-entry pockets, further enhance the silhouette’s seasonal functionality.
