As a fashion category jackets have eclipsed suits thanks to a more casual dress code and to the versatile nature of a garment that can be dressed up or down as required – a quality of paramount importance today. Jackets also seamlessly transition from the work week to weekend, and from dressy to jeans making jackets the indispensable component of a modern wardrobe.
Autumnal brown, bordeaux and forest green are some of the fashion forward color trends in this exciting collection, with pattern direction focused on checks and plaids from prince of wales to gun club checks, as well as Scottish inspired tartans. An attractive wool mesh assortment in 11 fashion and classic plain colors is also included for a more modern interpretation of the blazer, perhaps tailored as an updated ‘soft coat’.
Snowflake IX represents one half of this fall’s jacketing offering, featuring lighter weight, generally in clear finish options suitable for wear in all climates. Its sister collection, ‘Snowflake VIII’, is a heavier, milled finish range ideal for cooler climes.
Snowflake XII, the newest edition, features autumnal colorations and includes luxury blends of alpaca, linen, silk and cashmere. Bouclé yarns and oversized plaids represent significant fashions of the season, and assorted weights allow for a range of uses, from outerwear to unstructured dinner jackets.See The collection
