AND / OR

And/Or a relatively new contemporary line at John Lewis. The new laid back line is made in LA and has a kind of West Coast/ boho vibe. The AW17 collection had some gorgeous pieces that can be worn casually for lunch or some of the pieces will work for those office Christmas parties.

The parka coat is a gorgeous khaki colour. Draw strings at the waist, which gives it some shape. I’ve worn a AND/OR striped top under this here, a girl can never have enough striped tops!

I picked a few pieces to shoot that I think are very versatile. Like this Velvet dress, velvet was seen on so many designers AW17 catwalks. Erdem had a mustard velvet dress, blue velvet suits at Tibi and at Gucci, well just a huge amount of velvet everywhere! I thought this dress would be perfect for casual lunches paired here with brogues but I can see this dress with a pair of boots to head out for cocktails. The fabric is light so the dress flows and hangs nicely. I love the red cord coming from the front opening.

 

Cozy bomber with pockets, worn with AND/OR jeans, I absolute love the selvedge white and red stripe down the leg, which is actually on the back pocket also. I have worn this look again with my brogues but I think you can imagine them rolled up slightly and with a heel.
