Kickstart Spring in style, with our top five hero pieces for the new season that tick all the trend boxes … Only At Mailbox
THE COOL CAGOULE: Who knew the cagoule could be so fashionable! Once the preserve of school trips (remember your mum stuffing your pac-a-mac in your rucksack), these lightweight jackets are the perfect choice for the temperamental British weather.
This navy and damson pattern cagoule, £415, from Paul Smith features an all-over geometric print and with an internal ‘Artist Stripe’ collar.
DIFFERENT DENIM: Forget those plain jeans, this season denim is dyed, deconstructed and embellished with designer hallmarks. Yet again, this most versatile fabric proves why it’s such a forever fashion favourite.
Balmain green shell and denim jacket, £1,675, from Harvey Nichols fuses two outerwear staples in one street-ready design.
HANDS-FREE: Backpacks are the most stylish way to carry your gear around this season. The luxury rucksack has cemented itself as a style must-have, from luxe leather and sleek nylon to statement prints and appliquéd detail.
The Brooks England Pickwick roll top cycling leather backpack, £330, from Burrows & Hare is crafted from water-resistant treated cotton canvas and genuine vegetable tanned leather.
NEW KNITS: It’s that time of year to think trans-seasonal … you know the pieces that take you effortlessly from one season to the next. Knitwear is great option; look out for thinner weaves and short sleeves for instant chic.
The Omatteo short-sleeved knitted sweater, £129, from BOSS is easy-wear – team with a smart jacket and trousers for the boardroom or denim for the weekend.
FASHION CONSCIOUS: As more and more of us become aware of buying ethically, eco-friendly sartorial investments should be at the top of your new season wish-list. Look out for organic materials, faux fabrics and sustainable brands.
Nudie Lean Dean jeans, £120, from Harvey Nichols are made from recycled denim and organic cotton that uses less harmful chemicals during the dying process.
