For AW13 the team over at Topman are taking us back to Britain's early days of exploration. Here we witness the journey of an explorer who first embarks on his new adventure equipped in practical outdoorsy clothing and hiking boots coloured in stone. As new discoveries unfold he becomes infused with rich saffrons and burgundys, unravelling the evolution into a cultured man. At the end of the collection, our traveller finally returns home in navy signifying a refined man.
Awash with neatly rolled fisherman hats, and featuring cropped jackets with voluminous high necksalso spotted in the other men's collections, I'd say next winter's trends are right here.
