A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the River Island A/W14 press event to see what the brand has for the upcoming season, I was really impressed with the menswear and the release of their Holloway Road A/W14 lookbook has added to the excitement. The Holloway Road collection is a stand alone heritage line that combines upcoming trends with elements from the River Island archive to create key lifestyle pieces for the modern man, having been around for a few seasons trying to find it’s feet it’s clear from this lookbook that they have definitely found their niche. For me autumn is my favourite season to dress for, it’s all about layering and being able to play with different textures and materials. This collection has hit the layering nail on the head, the coats are definitely a huge strong point here especially with the blend of formal styling with underlying casual elements. The collection is so broad yet cohesive from it’s varsity sweaters to the structured white shirts, everything is so interchangeable and versatile – you could form a complete autumn capsule wardrobe just from this lookbook. I will definitely be checking it out when it hits stores.
