Fashion is a funny thing. Before the clocks have even gone forward and our florals from this spring seen the light of day, pre fall collections for the coming Autumn are already being released, amid with rich tonal hues and heavy draping fabrics- usually summoning a small cry from my newest summer purchases. However, on this occasion instead of sending me into a flurry of panic, I actually let out a small squeal of delight. Before me, sitting in my inbox, was a series of sharp clean sports inspired looks, enriched with luxurious fabrics (leather being a key component) and delicate detailing (adding a somewhat feminine softness to a masculine inspired collection). What else could it be than the Whistles Pre Fall look book?
With baseball jackets, peplum, silk shirts, skater skirts and drawstring waistbands all creating an overall relaxed and comfortable silhouette, the ‘sports luxe’ trend from SS continues into Autumn, but with pencil skirts, silky shifts and micro patterning giving it a ladylike twist- something Whistles have down to a tee, and something I for one cannot wait to start saving for.
