Even though some trends are intended to vanish and mist away in an instant, I personally like to keep the must-haves cushioned in my closet for rennovation when I feel like being creative. Take the military style that regimented a war-like obsession at the start of the year. While it might be behind enemy lines and in no-mans-land now, I still find ways to fuse it into current trends and the Autumn spirit. I've recently enjoyed layering silky materials together, meriting the patchwork of honey leaves around my neck of the city woods. And it shows that you don't need tough, urban textures and colours to complete the army appeal, because the glossy shoulder and button details on my red shirt tick the aesthetics I feel. If anything, it's an autumnal hybrid of military and rustic charm. And a designer I came across recently who revels in this is Shareef. His clothes are like pixie boy princes from mystical forests, who also have that subtle air of urban attitude and funk.
