3. FILIPPA K


Filippa K AW13 (Filippa K)

WHO:

Filippa K’s design DNA is all about clean, classic, wearable sophistication and this season, which marks their 20th anniversary, is no different. We are currently coveting the brand’s stand-out coats, which form a central part of a collection which is inspired by layering clothes of graphic cuts and teaming pieces together to create a contrast in the fabric. The key way to get the Filippa look is to don a roll neck, get yourself some luxe trousers and thrown on a classic coat with a serious cut.

4. DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN


DAY Birger Et Mikkelsen's AW13 Collection Spans From Tailoring to Sporty Bomber Jackets (DAY)

WHO:

DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN is the brainchild of Keld Mikkelsen, whose vision was to merge his experiences from his world travels with the Scandinavian simplicity of his homeland. The result is masculine tailoring and vintage inspired styles, tailored pant suits and embellished details. The autumn/ winter collection is full of the everyday essentails and the party ready eveningwear. We suggest you join the waiting list for the brand’s bomber jacket STAT, as this is one seriously stylish take on the key jacket style of the Spring/Summer 2014 season.
