You’ve got to love Whistles. Ever since being reinvented by Jane Sheperdson a few years ago,the brand has continued to serve up must-have pieces each season. Last spring, this was undoubtedly the polka dot trouser suit and sell out neon pink Carrie skirt. This autumn, its Whistles’ tailoring which stands out, simply for being so superb.
Saville Row designer Frederick Willems (Gieves & Hawkes and Pringle) has collaborated with Whistles to create their high quality autumn/winter collection. Classic tailoring techniques have been adapted for the female silhouette, whilst maintaining a modern, masculine look.
Whilst navy, black and tweed dominate the collection and achieve an authentic masculine feel, the tomato red overcoat and ochre short suit are surely stand out pieces. The cropped tapered trousers are particularly versatile, and would look great with polka dot tights or lightweight socks underneath when it gets a little chillier.
Whistles have also made themselves the destination for your winter coat, with a selection of sleek masculine overcoats in luxurious English and Italian fabrics, with great twists such as leopard print, leather panelling and lapels.
