The Autumn Aesthetic
By Malene Birger has been representing the Scandi aesthetic since long before it went mainstream, and the brand’s AW21 collection is the epitome of pared-back, minimalist polish with a bit of fun thrown in. Head-to-toe neutrals,, with an unexpected furry cape, is the aesthetic I aspire to for the season ahead.
I sailed past Ba&sh in a cab last week and strained my neck trying to get an eyeful of this blazer in the window. I love the tweed finish in a warm berry hue – just a little more interesting than classic navy or grey.
These Paris Texas bad boys were so far up my wish list that I’ve already bought them. No other brand makes knee-high boots quite so cool (for that price point anyway) and, even though they may not be the most practical purchase, I can’t wait to wear them with midis and knits as it gets colder.
Be still my beating heart. This Totême coat is easily the best I’ve seen so far this year – let’s hope it becomes easier to find.
This may be a SS22 collection, but when Erdem sends such beautiful pieces down the runway it deserves to be acknowledged. The British designer remained faithful to his signature floral, feminine style when he showcased his collection last week and, even if the designs aren’t available to shop just yet, there’s still plenty of inspo there for the months ahead.
The Knitwear Brand
I discovered The Knotty Ones via Instagram and immediately fell in love with their quirky knits. Sustainably made in rural Lithuania, their thick cable knit pieces are the ultimate autumn heroes.
Brown is back and I, for one, am thrilled. I love the deep chocolate shade that’s everywhere right now – I’ll be pairing matchy matchy pieces together for a warm autumnal look.
Right behind the Paris Texas boots on my wish list are these perfect Tibi trousers. This balloon shape + a knit or a tee and blazer combo = everyday autumn dressing at its finest.
