Trophy Jackets

If there’s one place a trophy jacket has reason to exist (aside from spring/summer 2009, its original heyday), it’s at the couture shows, where sparkle and spangle are de rigueur.

Head-to-toe

Dressing head-to-toe in one colour is the smart dresser’s styling option. It’s a new way of thinking when it comes to blocking colours, especially when the shades of choice are white or grey – aka sophisticated and semi-conservative.Ming Xi 2 Vogue 27Jan15 Dvora_b_1080x720

This is about a flash of a sweatshirt, a subtle trainer, a zip-up top layered beneath a jacket. Whatever the touch, it hints at being active.Green coat Vogue 27Jan15 Dvora_b_1080x720
