When the days of autumn are bright and cold, find the brightest red

Autumn fashion is like an old friend you didn’t realise how much you’d missed until that moment you pull on your woollen cardigan and your heavy coat with it’s bespoke tailoring, to head outside where the air is crisp and cold. As much as we’d hoped those long summer days might bleed into September, it seems that the coolness of autumn is well and truly upon us and we are waking up to those wonderful autumnal mists that linger in the valleys around our quintessential British villages.

As London Fashion Week marched into it’s final days on the runway, a plethora of red graced collections from the likes of Alexander McQueen, to Chloe and Max Mara.

Red, with all it’s variations of shade and fabric, is such a magnificent look-at-me colour for Autumn; those sumptuous printed velvets, silks and frills just leapt off the catwalks as though we were seeing this shade for the first time.
Red can be worn so beautifully with the continually trending tweeds from classic British designers like Burberry, or with a classic Paul Smith signature suit.

In fashions of old, wearing red is rarely an accident; it’s a bold enough statement to add a pair of oxblood red shoes to your outfit, or to dress from head to toe in cerise; and with such a fantastic mix of unconventional block-colour combinations at London Fashion Week, inviting a bold red into any colour mix will make your outfit instantly on-trend and wonderfully avant-garde.

This is a wonderfully deliberate colour, and we are delighted to give you some of our favourite reds that are an absolute must for your wardrobe.
