1. Burberry Prorsum

Nowadays we menfolk have our equivalent of the statement bag. This season Burberry gives us this leopard-print tote in ponyskin. It is as functional as it is eye-catching.


2. O’Keeffe

If there’s a shoe style with staying power, it has to be the monk strap. Painstakingly crafted, O’Keeffe’s brogue version is a joy to behold; the fringed front adds foppish flair.


3. Lanvin

Lanvin’s overcoat has a raglan-style sleeve which drapes from the shoulder, giving it the essential oversized look. The silhouette  for the coming winter –


4. Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten has given paisley a new lease of life. Made from 100 per cent cotton, the curved hemline makes this an ideal shirt to wear untucked.


5. Rake

The renaissance of the double-breasted jacket continues apace. This one comes in washed cotton; wear with mismatched tailored trousers for true spezzato style.


6. Marni

A boozy palette of clarets and burgundies is always popular at this time of year. Just looking at the splendid colours of this sweater by Marni warms the cockles.


7. Marc by Marc Jacobs

Oversized checks and plaids can be found in abundance this season. This backpack has an informal feel, making it an understated way to acknowledge the trend.


8. Raf Simons

There’s a more subversive take on the customary seasonal knit this year. The recurring question-mark hair-print on this jumper wouldn’t look out of place on the Riddler.


9. Prada

Miuccia’s always ahead of the game. Take these brogues: the soft leather atop a sole that would put a tractor tyre to shame is a great juxtaposition for diehard Prada fans.


10. Mauro Grifoni

Designers have a knack of  reinventing classics. The competing textures of this old-school varsity jacket – wool body, leather arms – turn it into a coveted luxury item.
