River Island Winter Warmers
As the temperature continues to drop and the dark nights close in, River Island has released an extensive selection of outerwear to help see us through the harsh winter months. Incorporating both classic and contemporary styles, the range caters to both ends of the menswear spectrum.
The casual offerings use texture and colour-blocking to great effect. Shearling collars add a tactile element to many of the pieces whilst a biker jacket with tonal shearling front panels shows off an original way to apply the fabric.
Contrast sleeves add an urban element to a flight jacket, with a patterned alternative available for those that want to make a more overt statement. Baseball jackets are also popular, constructed in seasonally-appropriate flannel or featuring striking denim sleeves.
However, the smarter styles are key to the collection. The military coat is particularly prevalent: traditional silhouettes such as pea coats and double-breasted overcoats are available in grey and olive whilst a graded charcoal colour brings a modern touch to a classic piece.
An on trend duffle coat in bright orange has a similar effect, breathing new life in to an established piece through its bold incorporation of colour. More subtle alterations are made to the trench coat; the neutral grey body is enhanced with a leather look trim, giving the piece a contemporary twist whilst retaining a sense of timelessness.
Overall, River Island’s latest selection of winter outerwear will provide a welcome injection of style to any cold-weather wardrobe. Contemporary detailing and colour ways help to update time-honoured pieces, ensuring that every item has an element that sets it effortlessly apart from its contemporaries.
