Evoking a beautifully bohemian mood for AW18, Soulful Wanderer – the latest daywear collection at Monsoon – has arrived. Here, we reveal the story and design inspiration behind the coveted new range, and show you how to style its key pieces throughout the season ahead…
Embarking on a journey through Tibet, Utah and far beyond, Soulful Wanderer reawakens the folklore trend in a new, contemporary way. Free-spirited styles come with flowing florals, traditional tile prints and geometric stripes, updated with rich berry tones and soft colourations that effortlessly mirror the mellow mood of now. Fabrics take the form of rich corduroys, woven moleskins and sumptuous velvets, creating a modern daytime wardrobe that’ll make a memorable impact in every setting.
1. Two Tone
Bohemian styling has evolved since the heady days of summer, with long, languid lengths giving way to more refined iterations of the trend. Make it work for AW18 with an off-white pussy-bow blouse with embroidered sequin flowers, tucked into the waistband of an A-line cord skirt in muted blue – we love how the cool colours won’t feel out of place on milder autumn days. Team yours with Western-style ankle boots in soft black suede.
2. In Print
A vibrant clash of colour and print, traditional tile motifs have been reprised for the new season. The rich colour palette of this buttoned blouse allows it translate well into your AW18 wardrobe, while its soft jersey fabrication ensures complete comfort from work to weekends. Send out a modern message by wearing yours with a pair of peg-leg trousers in navy, finishing the laid-back look with white trainers.
3. Blanket Term
Knitwear regains its relevance as we move into colder climes and nothing feels more bohemian than this season’s it-piece: the blanket cardigan. Patterned with geometric stripes in black, white and blue, and detailed with tassels, this cosy cover-up is the perfect piece to throw on and go. Layer yours over head-to-toe hues of white or navy.
