ROBINSONS Specialty Stores Inc. held a brunch styling party last month at The Pig & Palm and showcased this year’s Autumn/Winter collection of brands Burton Menswear, Dorothy Perkins, 62000, Topman and Topshop, and pointed out some trends and styles to look forward to this season.
Burton Menswear welcomes autumn with modern British sartorial flavor captured in sleek minimalist lines. The Smart Collection is also launched this season with designs fit for the modern man as it combines innovation and sartorial elegance.
62000 embraces the new generation, Gen. 2, with its new “work” philosophy and product innovation fit for Gen. 2. It has teamed up influencers like film maker Derek Tsang, Cassie De Pecol—the fastest person to travel every sovereign nation—and British musician Rafferty Law. The series consists of lightweight designs making it easy for travelers with water-repellent fabrics, non-iron cotton shirt combining fashion and function, and the multi-way blouse which can be worn different ways.
Dorothy Perkins’ must-haves for this season are inspired by those seen on the runway but wearable off the runway with the key color red. Throughout the collection, shades of burgundy, tomato and crimson are seen. Customized denims, dresses and draped skirts, as well as sequins, make an early appearance. Bags have also been updated in autumn-themed colors and prints to match the collection.
Topshop presents three girls for the season carrying different signature styles: the pretty girl who’s drawn to chunky knits, delicate embroidery, items bearing a retro influence, modern romance and femininity; the rocker chick who’s a bohemian at heart and presents a grungy, undone style without trying too hard using staples like the well-worn leather biker, black skinny jeans, velvet mini dresses and vintage faux-leopard included; and the stylish kind of girl who gets the polished look down pat and pairs hero pieces with daily uniform of tailored trousers, cashmere blend knits and pinstriped men-style shirting.
Topman experiments with shape and silhouette with the anti-fit as the key feature on all trends like youth clash merging punk, skate and sportswear; terrace boys, a trend that looks back on nostalgic sportswear like ‘90s graphic sports tees; outdoor noir, remixed club wear with a utility and outdoor sport aesthetic; and check mate, showing upscaled and oversized traditional checks.
