H&M Autumn/Winter 2012 Lookbook
Although we haven’t yet experienced any form of summer here in the UK, designers and high street retailers alike are getting set to release their autumn/winter 2012 lookbooks. H&M are one of the first high street chains to launch their version, which is designed to showcase their upcoming collection off to the fullest.
After viewing the new lookbook, we can see that there has been a clear emphasis placed upon suiting and tailored garments such as: Rollneck knitwear, blazers, overcoats and smart tailored trousers to name but a few.
“The suit is the most important garment for men at H&M this fall, and it’s amazing to see how it can be worn in so many modern ways. Traditions mix with new ideas to build a new wardrobe that’s all about personal style.”
Andreas Löwenstam – H&M’s Head Menswear Designer.
With all this talk of menswear staples such as suiting and trousers, you could be forgiven for thinking that is all sounds a bit, well, bland. However, H&M have not forgotten about the smaller details it takes to complete an outfit such as this, with the range also featuring key accessories such as brogues, leather gloves, bags, ties, coloured socks and even the FashionBeans essential; the umbrella.
The diverse and sophisticated collection sees a wide array of colours being incorporated, with distinct autumnal hues of burgundy, burnt orange, olive green and brown taking centre stage. Textures haven’t been neglected either, with beautiful tweeds and molted wool available – not only representing the seasonal change wonderfully but also adding a sense of luxury to the range.
