6 October, 2015: The Next Autumn Winter 15 collection is one of texture, colour and sophistication.
Rich autumnal tones of forest green, camel and jewel blues are mixed with icy, frosted pastel shades and accented with bold winter brights, splashes of gold, pewter and silver, embodying a colour palette of seasonal hues and misty tones.
From gorgeous faux furs, textured fabrics and bold new prints to rich jewel colours, this season is all about giving your wardrobe a touch of luxe.
The Artists Muse collection focuses on pussybow blouses, slim-fit and flared dresses, relaxed tailored suits, textured roll neck sweaters, A-line skirts, and patch pocket coats.
It’s all about faux fur and shearling on the catwalk for autumn and this can be seen on gilets, duster coats and Borg collar bikers throughout the Craft collection. Knitted blanket capes and chunky fringed cardigans are layered over simple knits to create a muted colour palette.
Opalescent sees a continuation of pastels, but in heavier fabrics, giving them an autumnal update. The collection consists of flattering dresses in blurred florals, delicate lace blouses and tapered trousers, which can be worn together or individually, adding adaptability to the collection and perfect for taking you from the desk to a dinner.
The new season at Next combines modern, forward-thinking styles with traditional, hand-crafted looks, blending the past with echoes of the future.
Autumn sees a real focus on pattern, colour and silhouette. Return of the Rudeboy is the perfect demonstration of this trend. Originally born in the 60s and revived in the 80s, this story sees the spirit of the Rudeboy re-invented to create a directional, contemporary and timeless style.
As far as tailoring is concerned, the silhouette remains slim and skinny, with cropped trousers being an important update. Formal lightweight knits are updated with discreet geometric patterns, with a focus on premium yarns defining this smarter, more refined look.
This season, the trend for folk continues with vibrant Wilderness. Aztec knits, textured jackets and chunky handcrafted embellishments sit with girly transitional dresses and blouses in tribal prints. Embellished denims are paired with tarnished fabrics with a hint of subtle sparkle to create a laundered and handcrafted look.
Untold Stories is a transitional collection taking girls through all the seasons. Featuring on trend olive and khaki with hints of pale blue, simple and effortless shapes create a boutique feminine feel.
When it comes to the boys, Selvedge is a preppy inspired collection with a modern twist on everyday classics. Denims, lumberjack shirts and characterful slogan tees are paired with varsity style jackets. This versatile collection is perfect for day to night and is a refreshing take on boys’ winter wear.
For the younger boys, Scandamania is a modern nursery story with a subtle Nordic folk twist. Casual, cosy and practical, padded coats and textured knitwear offer fun and playful fashion for the little ones. Featuring skinny denims and essential winter accessories, this trend is ideal for those chilly autumnal days.
