Introducing the autumn lookbook from Monsoon, showcasing the key pieces and hero trends that are set to define your new season wardrobe. From floral prints and embroidered details to military-inspired styling, this is how the fashion forecast is unfolding for AW17.
Florals are often cited as having year-round relevance, reinventing themselves in accordance with the changing seasons. AW17’s answer to the trend spans oversized blooms on dark, moody backdrops to small-scale floral embroideries, seen on the must-have dresses of the moment.
The key outerwear trend of the cooler months, capes make their comeback for the new season with luxe new fabrications and modern design details. From bold patterned jacquard to sumptuously soft velvet, these latest statement styles offer a contemporary update on the classic cover-up.
Knitwear steps it up for the season ahead, shaking off its reputation as a wardrobe essential and becoming one of the key statement-makers of AW17. Artful embroideries, floral intarsias and sequin appliqués are some of the stand-out styling details that are making an impact, transforming staple items into luxe layering pieces.
The military trend marches back into our wardrobes for AW17, with modern silhouettes elevating it out of its vintage roots. Coats take on soldier-like styling with uniform palettes and embossed metal buttons, with statement jackets and shirts following suite.
