The AW20 pieces to rent now
As if a prediction of the times ahead, the focus of the AW20 collections shown back in February ahead of lockdown saw designers step away from the unwearable in favour of more classic and refined collections aimed at everyday wear. While we believe in season-less trends, the focus in the wake of a global pandemic, is now more than ever about classic pieces that will outlast a single season. With this in mind, understated luxury is in high-demand as consumers focus on quality over quantity.
It’s a Cinch
Miu Miu and Prada offered sculpted waists by way of the belted jacket. A look that can be created using your own collection of jackets and wide and thin belts, why not try renting to tap a new version of this trend at a fraction of the RRP. Opt for classic colours – think charcoal, black and camel tones – for wear-with-anything appeal.
A firm autumnal favourite, the classic check is updated for AW20. Usually synonymous with shirts, designers showed iterations of the pattern across dresses, coats and trousers in brighter and punchier hues, adding the perfect pop of colour and texture to your Autumnal palette.
With Zoom meetings now a regular occurrence as many of us grapple with the ‘new normal’ of working from home, expect your knitwear to come with a twist, firmly elevating the home-office look. Look for pieces adorned with beaded accents and fringing and wear as an alternative to the formerly favoured festive sparkle…
Adorned with beads and fringing, knitwear is given a luxe finish and offers a practical and stylish addition to your Zoom wardrobe.
Look to the perennial leather boot to finish every look this season. Whether platforms, chunky soles or over-the-knee versions, they’ll add an instant update to your wardrobe and while usually an investment item, renting offers an affordable way to tap the look. Look to Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones – and new face of Jimmy Choo – who styles hers with tailoring in the label’s AW campaign.
