The Autumn / Winter 2013 Edit at Whistles
Whistles may have made their debut at London Fashion Week months ago, but this week has seen the launch their most coveted pieces from the catwalk, that's right, get your credit cards ready. The small salon show held at London's Arts Club in February showcased a selection of ultra lust worthy Autumn / Winter 2013 pieces spanning luxe leather, cosy stylish knits and the highly publicised camo jacquard.
Shown the day before Christopher Kane at London Fashion Week, their camo jacquard is remarkably similar to the designer's creations, yet still really accessible and wearable. It's these pieces which have launched this week, but get in there fast, we don't think they'll be sticking around for long. Of the camo shirt and trousers, CEO at Whistles and well known fashion figure, Jane Shepherdson said, "I like that this is a bit of a uniform but in a subtle way. It's as easy as wearing a dress but in a very cool way. While pajama dressing has been around for a while, the wider trousers here make it feel new. The camo print is great. I love that it's luxe - a contradiction in terms, perhaps, but a great one".
Talking of other pieces in the AW13 offering Jane added, "There's quite a lot of volume in our knits this season - it's about cocooning. Boyfriend fits have become a bit of signature of the brand, actually. Such as a reworked fisherman's jumper that you just want to cuddle up into immediately. I'd wear it with leather trousers to keep the texture contrast."
Design Director Nick Passmore said, ""doing a presentation at London Fashion Week for the first time this season was very exciting and encouraged the design team to be a little more experimental. But, ultimately, it comes back to you. We want Whistles women to feel like themselves when they put our clothes on. Enjoy this season - we hope you'll be back for more."
