It’s that season of Fall/Winter collection previews and I’ve got to say, I’m so super super excited for Winter! I always favour layering, leather jackets and comfy sweaters over tshirts/tanktops and shorts so you can imagine how excited I was to see all the yummy collections that should be rolling into stores really soon! There’s still a couple more previews coming up in the next few weeks but here are three brands that I’ve seen lately and am SUPER excited about and my favourite picks from the collections.
First up: Monki. They always have the best more affordable sweaters and Winter layering. I was of course particularly fond of the dark muted colours and the accessories for FW are so fun! This season they held their preview at Galerie NeC on Hollywood Road and it was such a great open space with great light. Big shoutout to the girls of AVIBE! Love you guys!
Both these sweaters are so great!!
Fun lace underthings and sweet backpack!
Next in line was 3.1 Phillip Lim. I always cite Plim as one of my favourite designers. His pieces are always basics with a twist and so so so wearable but still quite playful. This season he focused on the idea of tromp l’oeil with mock prints and eye-trickery blocked monotone colours. Of course the superhero POW collection is still available too which I LOOOOOOVE.
SUPER special GOLD GOLD GOLD mini Pashli!!
The PERFECT black pumps
Don’t cry baby!
Tromp l’oeil ultra slimming shirt! And a really cool coat that was actually two separate pieces!
Oh Givenchy, how I love you so!! Givenchy can do no wrong (although those super popular for FW over-the-knee slouchy boots are VERY questionable…). I particularly loved the men’s collection slightly more than the women’s although the accessories this season are to die for! For this season, Tisci brought back the rottweiler print (which did so well last season and was one of the most sought after print) and played with his fascination with Americana hence the men’s stars and stripe graphic prints. For FW, Tisci carried over the SHARK theme with a lot of accessories still utilizing the tiny baby shark fang. I love love love love the giant metal shark tooth necklace that I wore here and glad to see he brought it back again this season but in a smaller subtler size.
Dreamy delicate but hardcore dress. I have this image of a really pretty girl wearing this with a crazy ass oversized leather jacket and biker boots – my go-to hard/soft look.

Love love love this men’s watch cuff bracelet
Those horn earrings! I was actually really disappointed to find that they’re just magnet clip-ons. I wish he offered some stud/earring version..these are available in-store at Lane Crawford already but hurry cos they’re actually selling out really fast!
SO SO SO SO excited for Winter!! Can it please just be leather jacket/layering weather already!?!?!
