Hobbs | A British Affair AW15
Nothing says British like Harris Tweed or Liberty London. I love seeing the Christmas windows being unveiled in an evening of magic at Liberty on Regent Street in the heart of London. Their iconic prints are world renowned and now they are coming together with three other heritage British fabric houses at Hobbs for AW15.
Billed as “The best of British fashion meets the bastions of British fabric innovation”, Hobbs have their Hobbs Heritage collection that combines contemporary style with centuries-old craftsmanship from Abraham Moon, Harris Tweed, Liberty and Joseph H Clissold.
Hobbs | A British Affair this Autumn/Winter
This season the office wardrobe has never looked so stylish. Femininity mixes with board room glamour and Hobbs have taken Joseph H. Clissold’s fine wool fabrics, in a navy pinstripe and turned it into a striking suit. But this is an upgrade to your standard two piece.
Featuring directional kick flares, the key trouser shape this season and spinning a lady like edge with Liberty print lining in the suit jacket. A definite hit this season that will take you from meeting to meeting and give you that winning edge.
I love a great British fashion institution story and Abraham Moon is one of those. Established in 1837 in Yorkshire, Abraham Moon is one of the last woollen mills in the country to manufacture luxury fabrics from start to finish. This season Hobbs upgrades the staple pencil skirt and the shift dress. Two wardrobe staples whether your in the office or styling a strong day look. For me an investment shift dress for the office is key and I love the grey-flecked tweed dress with a little bit of on trend fringing.
Team with this seasons polo neck sweater in a deep plum colour or or pop a crisp white shirt underneath. An essential for the cooler seasons but a sharp look for the office.
Never one to warm to autumn/winter in a big way, the one thing that gets me through is colour. Don’t hide in the shadows this season.
Embrace the burnt oranges, the midnight blues, the berry hues and chocolate browns. Here’s just a little splash of colour that is threading through the wider collection so Shop now with Hobbs this season.
Hobbs is an investment brand there is no doubt about that, but if you’re going to invest in anything this season then classic British fabrics teamed with contemporary design is the way forward.
