This season's going beyond great basics, the statement jacket is back and looking better than ever! With OTT embellishment the aim of the game from top to toe, it came as no surprise that even our outerwear got a touch of hobby-craft artistic flare. From Chanel to Givenchy, trophy jackets in an array of beautiful adornment reigned in a new era for decorative outerwear.
Interpreted with a myriad of different style bents, band-aid badges, ornate embroidery and lashings of leather went hand in hand with ladylike separates and eccentric accessories across the fashion landscape. Converting clean minimalism to rock chic and prairie princess to urban cowgirl, high design jackets kick started true sartorial ripples that turned tidal on and off the catwalk.
All the way from the runway to the realway, people from both ends of the fashion spectrum are embracing the mid-season madness with their own interpretation on this fabulous high-design trend. The ideal off-catwalk trend focus to try at home, we couldn't wait to get our hands on an decorative trophy jacket and pair it with one of our sleek and simple VAUGHAN silk shirts!
