The AW17 Colours You Need To Inject Into Your Wardrobe

You only have to observe nature around you to see that this time of year is a spectacle of colour. The recent red sun phenomenon cast a dreamy yellow filter over the country on Monday, transcending us into a colour frenzy. Here, we show you how to reflect the season’s AW17 colours into your current wardrobe…

Opulent Ochre

Deriving from the Old French term ‘ocre’ meaning a type of clayey soil, this yellow-orange hue stems from the deepest depths of the earth. Offering a warm glow to your ensemble, this vibrant shade is the most sophisticated way to sartorially echo the great outdoors. It’s a shade that certainly packs a punch against the sugary pastels of summer. This season, choose velvet to champion ochre through your style. A fabric that allows the pigment to shine, it lifts the yellowy gleam of this shade even further. Team with an equally organic shade such as our signature chestnut tan leather for a naturally chic aesthetic, this Autumn.

Winsome Wine

Autumn shades have the ability to trigger nostalgia unlike any other season. Reminiscent of scarlet-hued berries during brisk, wintry walks and cosying up next to the fire swirling a glass of something red, wine is most definitely one of those colours. A dark, sultry shade with feminine notes, adopting wine tones into your tailoring and workwear is an effective way of mixing up your officewear for the season ahead. Some of our most iconic women’s business bags have been revived for AW17, including a shift in our leather shades. Maxwell – Scott’s signature full-grain leather has been dyed in a deep wine shade for the upcoming season.

Palatial Petrol

A shade Italian fashion house Gucci regularly champions, it’s hard to avoid the influx of petrol hues when Autumn rolls around. Synonymous with a cooler, fresher aesthetic for AW17, this colour is less about feeling cosy and more about making a statement. This season’s main motto for colour is to adopt a no dilly-dallying approach. Simply wear it head-to-toe if you’re going to wear it at all. Whether you execute this with different tones of petrol or solely one block of the shade, it’s an easy way to swerve the usual warm autumnal shades for something with gumption. This season, the new Emilia collection is available in our signature full-grain leather, dyed in a vibrant petrol shade.

Rich Red

Highly doubtful but if you haven’t already heard, red is the colour for AW17. If you’re going to invest in any shade this season, make it this primary hue. Shouting loudly on catwalks and in the lenses of street style photographers during fashion week, ignoring red would be as hard as unlocking Da Vinci’s code, this Autumn. Again, head-to-toe is the only way to style this sassy shade – make it postbox red for instant sartorial credibility. If you’re going to fuse red with any colour for AW17, black should be at the top of your list. Think thigh-high suede boots, a silk chemise top or one of our iconic leather designs in Night Black for an edgier take on Autumn style.
