ELEVEN Things to Shop: Category is… Layer Up!

Text   Agency Eleven Studio

It’s time to wrap up, and we’re here to give you the perfect ingredients to the ultimate transitional lewk courtesy of your favourite designers.

Yep, you’ve finally realised – the few days of rain aren’t just a passing by. It’s officially autumn-going-on-winter which means all those vacuum-packed bags full of warm garbs are coming out to play. And what better way to refresh your old favourites but with some key pieces that will allow you to get creative with the layers of fabulousness you’re finally getting to show. Before we get into high winter season where the only thing that matters is not freezing your ass off, it’s time to celebrate the hybrid pieces that are easy to pile on like an ice-cream sundae.

Nicholas Daley x Lavenham Quilted Jacket

Old meets new, heritage meets zeitgeist. This is a true icon of the AW20 season courtesy of a collab that’s unexpected yet totally makes sense.

John Lawrence Sullivan Logo Turtleneck

Embrace your inner 1970s James Bond thanks to a turtle-neck with retro finger-holes that will add a bit of sass to an outfit even when things get (really) cold.

Charli Cohen Exo Skort

What’s better for layering than a piece that’s already a two-some. Shorts that are also a skirt (yet, it’s a skort!) which very much embrace the loungewear reality of 2020.

Kara Hematite Chrystal Mesh Vest

We might not be travelling anytime soon, but with this bag-vest you can keep your belongings safe as well as flash some sparkle when the right moment arrives. That moment is, of course, whilst queueing in your local Tesco.

A. A. SPECTRUM Mongolian Fleece Jacket

You can’t built a layered outfit without a piece of outerwear that can fit all that bulk underneath. This wrap coat is essentially a warm blanket in jacket-form.

Liam Hodges Crochet Link Shearling Vest

Fuzzy and funky is the name of the game, and Liam Hodges knows how to play it. Plus you can definitely justify a purchase when represents sustainability at its funnest.

Martine Rose Space Hoodie

The queen of layers knows how to make a hybrid that can be worn in multiple ways and look brand new every time you do. Is it two hoodies? Is it just one? Who cares, it’s Martine Rose.

Natasha Zinko Deconstructed Lace Dress

This one is for those glamorous evenings when you decide to pop the champagne and seduce whoever is in your bubble/household. Mooching around the house has never felt as sexy..


Y/Project Striped Loop Knit Cardigan via htown

In true Y/Project fashions, this cardi is all about tricking the eye and making your wardrobe look just a tiny bit more complex. Shredded with a layer of nude mesh underneath… It’s fashion porn at its finest.

Pronounce Single-breasted Houndstooth Coat

Like a cherry on top of a cake, the Pronounce statement coat will add that tiny bit of extra-ness all of us could use during these wild times.

Song For the Mute Wool Gabardine Dress Pant

And what’s a winter refresh without the perfect pair of black trousers? A Song for the Mute add a poetic sensibility to the simplest of cuts, here thanks to a tie that will quickly turn straight into billowy.
