Different from Tommy Hilfiger’s past preppy collections, it is more about fine materials and surprising details this winter: the unexpectedly stern leather used in a field jacket with geometric pockets, the shearling collar and doubled zip on a rather natty navy puffer. A great deal of attention was given to trims, stitch details, and tonal accents—all handled with a light touch, but noticeable enough to make the garments pop.

This weekend on the street, with Jiawa from Beige Renegade, we are twinning in burgundy. Burgundy, dark wine, or maroon has been so big and popular this year, it is like the “IT colour” after dusty pink, there are so many designers and labels are doing burgundy. Even the crazy popular Gucci Princetown slippers has burgundy and pink colour.
Burgundy is warm, romantic and is an absolute staple colour during autumn and winter. This year, it has stretched its way into spring as a seasonal colour trend appearing in 2016 spring collections. Now burgundy is the ‘new navy’ where it can be worn in more ways than you think. Belonging into the red and purple families with its other colour siblings like shades of maroon and wine, it exudes classiness due to its richness in colour. The warmer the better as leaning into more of the red tones is the way to go, according to Bloggers Boyfriend. If you are contemplating on how to match colours, burgundy looks great with brown, mustard and your usual suspects that ‘fall’ under as an autumn trend colour. On the other hand, the basic cool colours and material such as denim, navy and blue also creates the perfect contrast. If you want to translate burgundy into spring with a bit of personality, then wear the colour with sailor stripes, suggestively with black, white or navy to give burgundy a bit of life and a breath of fresh air. Burgundy in different textured materials and shades combined outfits are also recommended especially in wool, velvet, shining leather, silk or satin. This season, designers such as J.Crew, Loro Piana, John Lobb, Rubinacci and Common Projects have all raised their hands for burgundy trend.
