This Autumn has already given us some unpredictable British weather. Who’d of thought we’d be kicking back in tees at the start of October? Here at Bernard’s HQ, we’ve put together some of our favorite looks (that didn’t appear in the video) for this season. Dress Well.
The FARAH design team can always be called upon to use colour to brighten up a dull season and AW11 is no exception. Bright colour pops can be seen across the collection used as a highlight and backdrop to patterns and textures.
This collection brings together all the pieces needed to create a stylish but practical winter wardrobe, core staples like THE LLOYD, a jacquard print polo shirt are joined by new pieces in THE HOPKINS duffle coat available in the striking all over tartan print or the muted palette of navy, dark earth and Khaki.
The colours across the collection work together to create layered outfits that complement each other and provide the necessary warmth needed survive the winter. Polo’s have been winterised with long sleeves and a soft jersey finish. Chunky knits come in a choice of patterned jumpers, THE DALEY, matching zipped up cardigans, THE FALCON, or classic cable knits with shawl collars with wooden buttons and the Farah metal badge branding, THE FARADAY.
Trousers across the collection are available in a choice of fits and finishes from the classic FARAH RADLEY SKINNY denim and enzyme washed stretch WAGNER to THE ALBANY in more winterised fine or thick 16 whale corduroy in a seasonal carrot fit.
Outerwear is a key focus of the collection this season. For a more formal style look to THE WORDSWORTH a classic Melton pea coat with traditional anchor buttons or THE HANBURY a single breasted traditional Mac with a water resistant coating and brushed flannel lining. For casual days THE REDCHURCH is a cotton twill hunting jacket with a contrast courduroy collar or THE BANBURY, a coated cotton parka with tonal elbow patches.
The Norse Projects AW11 collection reflects the low lights and crisp winds of the northern winter.
Waking early to the biting Nordic cold, the Norse Projects gang embarked on this shoot with photographer Sacha Maric to the cliffs of Møn, one of Denmark’s most impressive landmarks which shoulders the Baltic sea.
A diverse mix of woodlands, cycle paths, ponds and pastures encircle these sheer cliffs creating a hub where we spent the day indulging in the Danish landscape, testing the functionality of the new products in the rough and cold coastal weather. Bernard thinks these pictures look great. Keep an eye out as www.meetbernard.com will be having the first Norse Projects drop VERY soon!
