The most anticipated show of London Fashion Week was the Burberry Show. Under the new direction of Riccardo Tisci, the logo has changed and a new monogram has been added to the surprise of fans which began to speculate about what other changes could be in store. Changing a logo is not a new move under a new leader. Hedi Slimane notoriously changed the logo at Yves Saint Laurent and then again recently at Celine. We were all unsure what more dramatic changes Tisci would make to the most iconic fashion brand in England. Refreshingly, we saw new takes on heritage staples such as glorious remakes of archival styles as well as easy to wear separates. However, it was the first looks that eased the mood with fresh takes on once boring beige and wear anytime pieces.
Suiting saw a revival on the Fall/Winter 2018 runways, but its the monochrome three-piece suit above that caught our attention. The fitted, yet feminine lines give an equestrian feel. Worn in pieces or all together, its an investment with a gratifying return for years to come.
The Beige Bag
Too many black bags? This not quite brown bags in taupe, tan and beige made us feel that a new bag splurge can't wait until Spring.
The Work Shirt
Our next comfy but pulled together look is no longer a boho dress. Men's style work shirts and slim pants with a classic heel may be our next go to look.

CALVIN KLEIN SPRING-SUMMER 2019
Is it too early to proclaim that athleisure is dead? If New York Fashion Week has any foresight into what the new year will bring, it seems as though the obsession with athletic wear has reached its fever pitch and will succumb to a low hum by spring. Yet, the borrowed from the boys theme remains. Longline blazers were seen in many New York Fashion Week shows. Maybe it was inspired by the boxy jackets Kenzo sent down the runway during Men’s Fashion Week in June or maybe designers have realized the real allure of athleisure is comfort. American designers have colluded to make American sportswear less restrictive and more, dare I say it, comfortable. Could it be the next wave du jour?
Calvin Klein, Derek Lam, Pyer Moss, and even Carolina Herrera added longline blazers to their collections for spring. Inspired partially by “The Graduate,” the Calvin Klein collection included a collection of blazers ranging from tuxedo-styles in sorbet colors to classics in saturated cranberry and even Ivy League tweeds. A few men walked the Tibi runway in womenswear so sleek and gender-neutral that it looked as though it was made for them. The swingy blazers paired perfectly with relaxed fit pants, printed shorts, and over flowy silk dresses. Both Tibi and Pyer Moss added an unexpected twist to some of their longline blazers with a side-tie that offered a robe feel without cinching the waist.
As the temperatures begin to drop and the need to cover up has you shuffling through your closet for last year’s moto jacket, reconsider an oversized blazer. Resurrect vintage tweed blazers, tuxedo jackets or formal suiting. It may give you the Dad style vibes that have taken over menswear in the past seasons, but when paired with coordinating separates, the look is still a relaxed upgrade from athletic wear that will earn you a style promotion.
