Summer seems to be escaping us sooner than we had imagined. Flashes of sunlight occasionally break through the cloud cover and it’s evident that it’s time to focus on what’s coming next. What better day to plan ahead than Monday? The beginning of the week is a time of focus and optimism, so let’s look to next season’s wardrobe. Brighter colours take their leave to be replaced by muted, natural hues: dark greens, browns and greys aplenty. On the material side of things, linen becomes wool and canvas becomes suede. Enjoy the Top 5 Items To Drop This Week, including products from Miansai, Paul Smith, WANT Les Essentiels, ETQ Amsterdam and A Day’s March.

Paul Smith Dark Navy Blue / Black Reflex Slim Jeans

Paul Smith’s ability to create casual clothing with a formal edge deserves recognition. The Dark Navy Blue / Black Reflex Slim Jeans use Paul Smith’s Reflex denim which features a hint of stretch for added comfort. The dark navy finish is complemented by petrol blue stitching details for a signature bold finish.
