Fall Calling - Form meets function
Colourful leaves, cool breezes and lazy sunshine – all indicators of the most beautiful season. Fall is calling! November is the last chance to enjoy the magnificent autumn features, hence, to create this lookbook – we decided to homage to the last rays of sunshine gracing our skin and the light breeze that plays with our hair. While getting enveloped in the warm colours of the season, we chose to visualize an elegant, modern clean look with ever classic pieces whose function is in perfect harmony with its shape.
When creating clothes, Jan Machenhauer’s main inspiration is found in the everyday woman. As you may have read in our interview with him, he designs garments for everyday life that not only look gorgeous, but also have an aspect of functionality. His secret is to carefully choose materials, pay special attention to details and emphasise the importance in making the wearer comfortable in a perfectly fit garment.
If you have been searching high and low for the perfect office shirt, look no further! This shirt is a timeless piece that you can match with literally everything, and remain a staple in your wardrobe for a very long time.
Similarly, completing the outfit with a Jan Machenhauer coat adds to this look by introducing an element of charm and minimalism. It establishes a sophisticated and refined style for the cooler days. The graceful material and cut line make this piece a must-have essential of every fall wardrobe throughout a variety of seasons. Just like the shirt, you can accompany any of your outfits with this coat and style it for any occasion due to its versatility.
The highlight of this outfit is the & Other Stories corduroy suit in a rust colour that resembles the crisp fall soil under your feet made with the fallen leaves. We immediately fell in love with its luxurious velvety cord material decorated with tortoise buttons and completed with fine details, such as the classic Italian style lapels, a welt chest pocket and two front button closures. This set ensures a stylish and professional look, whilst at the same time giving you confidence at the office.
A watch is the accessory we cannot live without, especially when we have jobs that requires accuracy and thoroughness. How could we maintain professionalism if we are always late to meetings and rush into work at the last second? Therefore, we chose to partner with a brand that makes the highest quality watches and represent the real Scandinavian minimalism.
Nordgreen has a mission to create unique pieces in which aesthetics and functionality are gapped with an art that everyone can easily involve into their lives. The meticulously developed details mark the signature of Jacob Wagner, the designer, who strives to make every piece encourage the wearer to fight for their dreams and believe in themselves.
The reason why we love the small Mango tote handbag is the wooden accent handle and the cotton knotted details – combined, these characteristics create an affinity with nature. The strict, stiff shape and white colour provides the elegance and sophistication necessary in the office. It is also interchangeable between fall and summer outfits.
We can not deny our passion and respect for fall. It is the most colourful season which always brings a huge amount of changes in life, new starts, opportunities and new expectations. Nature prepares to sleep, but we wake up and the passing of the seasons reminds us to live every moment and enjoy the little things that this life has to offer.
