Allsaints Fashion’s Night Out
Contributor Danny Rhone headed to Allsaints Fashion’s Night Out in London and we we’re really impressed with the Allsaints collection. In a nutshell, the collection covered all bases from tailoring to casualwear in a really strong way. The tailoring was sharp and on point. It’s had a slight revamp but looked strong with some really good pieces like the outerwear and DB jackets. Layering was really evident with pieces like chunky cable knits, plaid shirts with cord detailing and quilted jackets. We were really impressed with the casual range and it definitely had a lot of depth and variety. The stand out pieces were…
The petrov pea coat (£275) a really cool take on the pea coat with the top collar being a curly merino shearling which looks awesome with a denim jacket underneath.
The segment shoe. (£125) You will see a lot of brands this a/w put out their take on the double monk strap but Allsaints take has to be one of the best not just for style but also for value with a good price point. Great colour with the ox blood and I’m loving the thick outsole rubber tread which tones down this classic formal shoe.
The tokai shirt. (£95) This shirt looks and feels great. Very light weight cotton blend with a cool Japanese print coming in a navy and a brown which I am definitely eyeing up.
The brompton jacket. (£225) An example of the quilted style which presence was very strong. Great vintage style look, awesome colour and just a really slick jacket.
