_Clothes to take you anywhere_ could be Whistles’ new term manifesto. This autumn-winter we take to the windswept coastal outlier of Camber Sands, marking a celebration of our British roots and stylish yet timeless design values.
We know the Whistles woman leads a busy, dynamic life, and her wardrobe needs to reflect that. Effortlessly transitioning between her weekday cityscapes to her weekend wilderness – this collection has 24/7, seven days a week appeal.
The silhouette is relaxed, feminine and fluid, with pieces that can be easily dressed up or down. Louche knitwear, tumbled jersey and soft-touch shearlings in muted tones are anchored by knife pleat skirts and sharply tailored jumpsuits. Outerwear takes centrestage with the iconic camel coat making a return, while the foolproof puffer jacket – with it’s practical outdoorsiness and of-the-moment oversized profile – proves it never should have gone away.
A statement print is one of our signatures, and this season is no exception. A lively red and black apple print has a wry 70s charm, while baroque-inspired florals on luxurious silk and velvet devoré bases look modern when cut into contemporary pyjama co-ords and standout occasionwear. The colour palette is a rich mix of marine blues and greens, full-bodied mulberry and easy neutrals, interspersed with punchy jewel metallics and hits of vibrant red.
Understated yet cool, throw-on but never throwaway – this is about clothes whose appeal lasts well beyond the Instagram post. This is real life dressing, in real life terms.
This is Whistles.
