THE BEST DROPS OF THE MONTH
By Sam Higgins, 21 September 2017
With thousands of new products flying onto our screens every week, choosing your next purchase can sometimes be challenging. But, not to worry, we’ve picked out our favourite pieces that have dropped this month to bring you a concise style supplement to support you on your searches. Take a look…
Polo Ralph Lauren
Fashion’s renewed love for polo and rugby shirts has seen Polo Ralph Lauren thrive of late. And the American powerhouse has no plans on slowing down, appeasing our nostalgia with its latest line, Stadium – a reissue of the early 90s collection that'll save you scouring through vintage shops for a retro Ralph piece. Here, it’s all about big, bold graphics and primary hues placed on polos, caps and half-zip windbreakers for a serious statement.
Spanish label Stradivarius, inspired by classical music, has debuted on ASOS this month and is really hitting the right note. Arriving just in time for autumn, the brand has taken transitional essentials – like the bomber jacket and coach jacket – and future-proofed them with influences from 2017’s emerging trends. Layer over its simpler sweats and chinos for a strong look.
Scandinavia isn’t short of style exports, but its latest, Sweet Sktbs, is born from concrete playgrounds, immersed in skateboard culture and comes in the form of logo-laden streetwear. Cool collabs with Pepsi have given its boxy sweats and basic tees a simple upgrade, while side detailing on the cuffed joggers provide an on-trend touch to your bottom half.
When you think UGG, you probably imagine sliding around the house in cosy slippers. But forget all that, as the US footwear company is making a comeback with more mature boots that retain all the comfort of its shoe siblings. Built to handle more terrain than just the carpet, the brand’s new boots boast suede and leather uppers with durable soles. Opt for the laceless slip-on option for added versatility if the dress code requires a slicker shoe, or go full dadcore and slot the classic boot silhouette into your everyday ‘fit.
