Yes it’s finally spring-time! But unfortunately for those of us in the UK, this still mean a couple more months of wintry weather, the sun may be decieeving but we’ll show you the best brands showcasing the best in transitional outerwear:
Known for their wax and quilted textures, Barbour’s jackets are quintessentially timeless. They ooze British heritage and are perfect for both the wet and dry weather. Country and city appropriate, their jackets and outerwear are designed with effortless luxury in mind. The brand have opted for a fiercer look this season, opting for camouflage in navy and khaki shades to brighten up their more traditional darker styles.
One of the more versatile collections for outerwear, Casely – Hayford showcased a wide range of structured jackets in bomber and more tailored styles. Prints versus sport-luxe seemed to be a main theme in this collection, and they are ideal for the transition into the warmer weather. More suitable for the lighter evenings, these jackets are effortless and versatile. A boxy pin-striped blazer contrasts with their silk duster-style, light khaki jacket. The blazer is the key item in their collections and a fail-safe jacket that will work throughout the season. Darker hues and monochrome patterns work best on these.
For the man that wants to use the seasons to kickstart his wardrobe, DAKS is the perfect start for your inspiration. Their jackets and coats come in a varied range from perspex rain macs to soft, leather bombers, this is a collection that promotes diversity for the coming season. The colour palette is as classic as the cuts, a sleek navy is complimented by a midnight blue blazer. The standout jacket that suits all? A heavy leather number, imprinted with honeycombed shapes makes the texture as striking as the mustard yellow colour.
3.1 Philip Limm
If you’re opting for something lighter this spring then look no further than 3.1 Philip Limm. His SS’15 collection echoes the first sunshine of spring, their outwear in particular is made up of lighter and less dense textures than we’ve seen previously. For a slicker look, opt for their pinstriped bomber or navy blazers. Their lighter camel shades and muted cornflower blues are the perfect transition from the winter evenings to welcoming the lighter spring nights.
Comfort and warmth are key when hunting for the perfect stylish winter coat. Acne have nailed this by promoting a range of bomber jackets that work perfectly in the transition from the winter months to the first days of springs. Dark tanned leathers are contrasted with racing green suede’s to accentuate the change in the colours of the seasons. Mixing up different textures makes these jackets accessible for all occasions. Oversized and boxy, their definitive structure makes for a masculine, American sport look. Their quilted yellow jacket is the best option for when the sunshine decides to stick around.
