We think it's worth interrupting the current heatwave to take a sneak peak at the Whistles autumn/winter collection.
Autumn is a long way off – it feels decades away at the moment – but the Whistles autumn/winter collection definitely deserves a few minutes of your time.
We’ve had a sneak peek at the new range and, ladies, it doesn’t disappoint. In particular we’re loving the oversized ponyskin clutch, and, although we’re loving the dusty pink version, it’s the navy offering that has whizzed straight to the top of our autumn/winter wishlists. Navy was a big trend on the A/W’13 catwalks and features heavily in the new Whistles collection, as does cream.
Alongside the oversized clutch, it’s the outerwear that’s really caught our eye, with a navy (again) cape and a camouflage parka being our stand-out pieces.
Whistles has tapped into many of the autumn/winter 2013 trends with use of leather (we’re so excited about the quilt-stitched leather sweatshirt), classic patterns and a feminine twist on traditional masculine shapes.
Luxe knitwear is another key feature with cashmere and angora oversized sweaters being centre of the collection. Our junior fashion editor, Holly Welch, said: ‘I love the oversized sugar pink knit. It’s perfect for weekends with boyfriend jeans and weekdays with leather pencil skirts and a killer heel.’
Basically, the autumn/winter 2013 is everything we’ve come to expect from Whistles – sleek and polished with a modern twist. We’re looking forward to their spring/summer 2014 show already. Holly says: ‘They commanded quite a crowd at their A/W’13 show which is no mean feat as the London schedule is always manically busy. I think there will be a lot of fashion editors next season wearing the cameo parka!’
