NEW AW17 TREND: SCANDI SKATE

By Sam Higgins, 10 August 2017

Winter's almost a wrap and as we make the transition from coats and campfires to Sunday BBQs and shorts, we welcome the opportunity to curate some stylish, layered 'fits for the transitional between-seasons stretch. Look to our new Scandi skate trend to get your wardrobe off to a solid start.

To make the transition to the colder months easier, our new trend doesn’t stray too far from your favourite summer styles.

Here, Scandi staples are updated, combining 2017’s key textures with relaxed fits for a seasonal reworking that doesn’t slack on eccentricity.

The AW17 take on Scandi flips the style’s core principles on its head while ensuring the Nordic love for wider cuts and workwear runs through every piece. That means muted minimalism is replaced with clashing patterns, a bolder palette and a greater focus on texture.

Cord, borg and knitwear all make a return to your cold-weather arsenal, while key pieces include polo shirts, overhead jackets and baggy trews.

We weren’t short on catwalk inspiration during the AW17 shows with everyone from Calvin Klein to AMI clashing textures and giving retro cuts a smart, contemporary edge.

However, it was most notable at Palm Angel’s Milan showcase, which channelled the modern LA skater kid via striped rugby shirts, and Marni, where it was all about striped knits, drop-shoulder fluffy jackets and trousers that kiss the floor.
