Simple shapes have gone high fashion. Yes, you heard us right. This season, core basics were sent down every catwalk – from beautifully tailored trousers to soft wool crew neck jumpers in classic grey, navy and black.
The design team at Jil Sander presented a collection of comfort - a relaxed take on tailoring. Square cut jackets came with matching suit trousers that felt both modern and luxurious. Note the flat shoes too!
Stella McCartney showed classic silhouettes from her repertoire; loungewear-style tailoring, perfectly cut coats and must-have knitwear - all with a nod to her sporty aesthetic - and all in classic and neutral hues. The sort of thing every woman wants to pull on and feel confident in.
There was an effortless easiness to Hermès' collection this AW14. Classic trouser suits, wrap dresses and coats we all long to have as core basics in our wardrobes. Combined with quality of materials used, this is simple, luxurious dressing at its best.
The key to this trend is about keeping as simple and as comfortable (yes, comfortable!) as possible. Refreshingly, functional is now fun – and we have lined up the best of our simple shapes for you to add to your existing wardrobe:
A knitted take on the classic pencil skirt. Your autumn wardrobe will yearn for it. Slip it on with a WALL top and you're ready to go. Fully elasticated waist and split at centre back.
Every autumn wardrobe needs one. A Pima cotton dress cut with clean lines, scoop neck and long sleeves pairs with almost anything.
Layer on warmth with this kaftan-style coat made with long sleeves and a mandarin collar. Constructed in a wool-mix, it fastens with buttons and comes with two front pockets.
With WALL London, comfort is always a style. You can shop our full brand new Autumn collection here.
