Oliver Sweeney Accessories Collection
Much lauded British brand Oliver Sweeney have announced an AW13 accessories range that centres on simplicity and, it seems, belt buckles.
Complementing the label’s new footwear collection – self styledly focused on the bucolic nature of the British country (that means Shepard-like for all of you that can’t be bothered to Google) – they have offered a back to basics approach to accessorising whilst still retaining the tongue-in-cheek charm that sets the brand apart.
The stand out pieces of the collection begin at the head, with stunning, slim-brimmed Christy’s fedoras in muted grey and navy. Given hats are making a slow but steady resurgence into popular fashion, now is definitely the time to invest in such simple, refined and wearable pieces.
Complementing these we begin to see the aforementioned buckles, with canvas bags fastened by sturdy leather strapping and elegantly finished in the very same brown leather. However, where this theme comes to the fore is in the role-up utility bags. The luxurious colour ways here stretch from brown to orange, with a sophisticated envelope-style closing fastened by a single buckled strap – offering an elegant and altogether more masculine way to get on board the current men’s ‘clutch’ bag trend.
Soft tweed patterns, rich, warm colour ways and thick, sturdy materials complete a collection of flat caps, scarves, socks and wallets that channels the best of British heritage and offers a homely feel that is perfect for the autumn/winter months.
