Blue Note

As the temperatures continue to plunge, the need for sleek outerwear becomes more necessary. And what better way to cover up than in the anti-statement, statement making topper. The autumn winter collections have been defined by a more careful approach to design with natty tailoring—read: wide lapels, cozy fabrics, and mashups of texture and print. Enter Victoria Victoria Beckham’s latest offerings for the season which harness the quiet sophistication of its mainline sibling but with a touch of girlish insouciance.

Like Picasso, Yves Klein, and Joan Miró, blue dominates streamlined silhouettes in shades of cerulean, frost, and midnight. And like the artists’s impressive pieces, transform into a living canvas and try your hand with one of the season’s most eye-catching styles.

This 1970s-inspired belted leather trench fits the bill for day or night with easy polish and a cool alternative to black.

Bouclé is back. No longer relegated to your grandmother’s jackets, the heavyweight wool has been modernised through a cocooning silhouette for a cozy finish.
