Just as the nights draw in and we’re careering towards Christmas, along comes PreSS18, taking us a bit by surprise as always with a lovely promise of what’s to come once the festivities are all over and done.
This is a collection to see us through the dark days, guiding us with ease from one season to the next with a palette of pastels and plenty of fun.
Bellerose and MiH lead the way, throwing soft metallics, a spot of leopard print, beautiful embroidery and classic stripes into the mix. Then enters newcomer Shrimps with pastel fake fur, peter pan collars and gingham; Mes Demoiselles and Pyrus with floaty stars and ditsy florals; and St. Erasmus with the most beautiful, OTT bling.
Nevermind midwinter, we’ll be happily playing dress up.
Workwear; we’ve seen it inspire many a menswear collection over the last few years and we continue to be big fans of the aesthetic. That said, we're very much welcoming a fresh take this season with thanks to basement newcomers M.C. Overalls, a label with a long and industrious history manufacturing workwear since 1908.
Not that you’d know it, because M.C. Overalls aren’t peddling their heritage like most. And we love that. What we see instead is a great collection of hardwearing pieces adapted for the modern streetwear market. Straightforward Ts, trousers and jackets constructed from polycottons, heavy denims, technical fleece and jersey. And yes, we have overalls too.
Available in-store from this Friday, coinciding nicely with the opening of the label’s first bricks and mortar store on Carnaby’s Newburgh Street. Congrats M.C. Overalls, we're super proud to be exclusive UK stockists for AW17.
