If you like asymmetric cuts, loose tailored fits and a composed colour palette, you’ll love the Metropolis collection! Inspired by a quintessential British style with mid-80s to 90s tailoring, this collection is all about masculine shapes with a play on proportions - combined with ultra-feminine sheer fabrics, plunging necklines and Peter Pan collars.

How to style the look? Create a sleek fashionable autumn look with asymmetric styles across dresses, knitwear, tops and hemlines for a modern look. Ribbed knitwear is an ideal choice to bring together an outfit. Team a fine ribbed jumper with a lop-sided dress or skirt for a perfect mix of asymmetric styles. Finish your outfit with a lightweight coat that’s elegant and easy to wear. In true Metropolis style, an unstructured coat or long jacket in cool tones is the perfect versatile option to suit a day or evening dress code.

Designed for an effortless chic style, this unstructured style features a cinch in the waist belt to for a feminine fit. Wear with a light cream double faced coat for a flattering finish and add the final touch with double strap point court shoes for a look with some fancy footwear.
