With a highly successful womenswear line to boot, Whistles are launching a debut men’s collection for autumn / winter 2014.
With an already established and loyal customer base, Whistles offer a inspiring working wardrobe for the most fashion conscious and forward thinking modernist consumer with anonymous style. The synergy between both collections are seamless and are refined, accessible and timeless.
Jane Shepherdson, Chief Executive at Whistles says
“At Whistles we value the power of understatement and believe that sharpness, quality and function are what really resonate today. Menswear is built around a tightly edited core of familiar pieces, so making it feel relevant comes down to perfecting the details and subtly updating them. If the simple things don’t look brilliant, ho can you expect customers to fall for the more standout pieces?”
So what will we find in the collection? All the major trends are covered, there are oversized overcoats, colour blocking in the form of knitwear with relaxed mohair blends and long striped scarves in hot pink and Yves Klein blue. The khaki parka is also a great addition with a white sheepskin insert lining to keep the cold at bay. Also a big trend piece for autumn is the signature biker jacket reworked in an black sheering. Denim is stripped-back to a raw block with slim fitting and micro detailing. So how do the the price points compare? Well it’s high-quality menswear priced below designer level but above the mainstream, so more top of the high street (Hobbs, Jigsaw, Reiss). Prices start from £25 – £450
Where to buy:
The menswear Autumn/Winter 2014 collection will be available in various Whistles store around the country from 4th September and Whistles will be collaborating with London based design studio Wrong for Hay who will be creating bespoke pieces and installations in store for the menswear launch.
