THE TREND REPORT: PURPLE REIGN

The catwalk’s penchant for purple needn’t prove inaccessible this season. The trend calls upon rich hues that won’t feel out of place in an otherwise minimalist wardrobe.

Ditch warm-weather lilacs and violets in favour of deeper plum and aubergine tones. Not only do they complement an autumnal palette, they’ll also fit seamlessly with your everyday staples - black, camel, grey and navy. 

Menswear's rollneck revival shows no sign of slowing. Layering the luxuiorus knit under a richly textured velvet jacket will add serious regal rank to your look, whilst ticking off three of the season's key trends.

Stick to a muted palette with warm oxblood and chocolate undertones, and most importantly, let the suit make the statement - this is no time for clashing colours and loud accessories.

If you're keen to subtly nod to the trend, accessories are your vehicle. So whether scarf, sock or pocket square; this season, let purple reign
