The latest drop from F&F, fresh for Autumn 15, is now arriving in stores, and the 70s influence is apparent. Called Modern Retro, the collection is full of wide legged trousers, suede, fringes and muted colours that come straight from the decade that has had a style re-evaluation in recent times.
The collection is rather lovely, I see an influence from the cool retro looks of Rosie Fortescue and Millie Mackintosh in the use of faux fur and wide brimmed hats. Many of the trends from last summer are still here, but have been remoulded for the colder weather Autumn/Winter brings. So we are still seeing fabulous cullotes, both in block colour and floral print. Those blanket oversized scarves that Burberry made so popular last year are also back, offering literally acres of warmth in a very stylish way (although I still get flashes of Clint Eastwood as ‘The man with no name’ when I wear them…)
F&F always deliver on style and this season is no exception. My favourite pieces are the buckle effect dress that comes in navy (pictured below) and burnt orange. I love the idea of the burnt orange with suede, stack heeled boots.
I also love the culottes. I think these look great worn with knee high boots underneath, or with tights worn underneath with 70s style Mary Janes. These are great as they can be dressed up with a camisole or heels, or made comfy and cosy with a chunky Arran style knit.
Here are some more the of the stunning looks that will be hitting F&F stores and coming up online in the coming weeks.
