OK so after I have spent this weekend watching the rain from my window, and wrapping up in layers just to nip out to the shop, I think it’s safe to say that Winter has arrived and to put it blunt, it sucks big time. Luckily for me, I only have 6 weeks left in the UK before I pack up and head to Australia (maybe for a year….maybe forever!?) but for those not looking at jetting away anywhere, I wanted to give you some Autumn/Winter fashion inspiration from designer brand Moncler.
Sold across Harvey Nichols stores, the Moncler AW13 collection has my stamp all over it. I love black – it’s a staple, signature colour which is classic and flattering and never ever will go out of fashion. If I do inject some colour into my Winter wardrobe to compliment the black, then it’s muted greys, rich browns, and clean creams, all of which makes up Monclers colour palette for the season. Throw in some padded short jackets, luxury tweed and wool blends, snuggly bobbly hats, brocade prints and casual joggers, and you have a Winter collection stylish to see you through to next February!
My favourite piece from Moncler is this Quilted Fine Wool Knit Cardigan, £425, above, with it’s quilted shell body which adds a touch of high shine luxe to the cardigan. This is a fail safe piece which can be worn to work, underneath a big coat, thrown on for an evening night, or for a shopping trip. The range of Winter accessories too are absolutely divine too – lovely, thick wool scarfs and chunky knit bobble hats. For a minute it’s almost making me sad to leave Winter behind this year…
…OK maybe won’t go that far! But from a fashion point of view, the Moncler AW13 collection is what snowy evenings are all about!
