Introducing Modern Heritage at Monsoon, as seen in Stylist. Drawing its design inspiration from our expertly-curated fashion archives, this key collection for AW18 infuses seventies styling with contemporary silhouettes, creating a capsule wardrobe that effortlessly mixes the nostalgic with the new. Here’s your hand-picked edit…
Seventies-inspired styling is key for AW18 – and this dress ticks all the right boxes. Printed with vintage florals in an autumnal colour palette, this must-have midi is made all the more modern with an asymmetric hemline and romantic ruffles – we like it best with ankle boots. Need an extra dose of retro? Look to printed pussy-bow blouses and button-up shapes.
The AW18 catwalks were awash with unusual colour combinations, with the most wearable duo being blush and burgundy. Crafted in sumptuously soft velvet in a rich berry shade, this statement-making suit will make a fashion-forward mark from work to weekend diary dates – and especially when worn with a blush-toned blouse. Finish with chestnut accessories for the perfect on-trend addition.
Modern, comforting and cosy, corduroy is the comeback trend of AW18. New-season shapes and curated colour palettes help overcome the traditional connotations of the textured fabric, with button-up shirt dresses, A-line skirts and embellished pinafore dresses making up the must-have pieces of the moment.
Tailoring moves away from corporate shades this autumn, and re-focuses its attention on androgynous cuts in bright colours, fashionable construction and elevated fabrics. Designed in a rusty red hue, this seventies-inspired suit to set to become the statement-maker of your AW18 wardrobe – we love the double-breasted, belted blazer and wide-leg trouser. Team with trainers for a directional look.
