Fear of God

It’s safe to say we are excited about the number of jackets on offer. While winter is not everyone’s cup of tea, the latest collections from many of our favourite brands are sure to keep you snuggly and warm all season and luxury streetwear brand Fear of God is not here to disappoint. All about offering essential staples, Fear Of God’s latest collection is a prime example of the cool, calm, and collected vibe it radiates.

Founded by Los Angeles designer Jerry Lorenzo in 2013, Fear of God notably became a cult-favourite among many of Hollywood’s biggest names in only a short time. Much of this is credited to its ability to capture classics that blur the line of being sophisticated and low-key.

The latest collection is no exception. While sticking to neutral shades and simple designs, Fear of God manages to escape being boring, and rather, creates an aura of being timeless.

Owning a coat in winter is a must, and the beige double-breasted coat from Fear of God ticks all boxes. Fitted with a detachable self-tie belt, padded shoulders, a full copro satin lining, and a logo-engraved horn hardware, it means business.

On the opposite end of the jacket spectrum is the black embossed track jacket. Although simple, it’ll have you opting for sportswear more often than not.

AMI is a designer brand founded by Alexandre Mattiussi who knows more than a thing or two about creating a successful and desirable clothing brand. As a past designer for Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Dior, Alexandre combined his extensive experience with his passion for clothes that better reflected his reality, and landed on AMI.

Relying on precise tailoring and simplistic designs, Alexandre achieves a sweet balance between everyday essentials and streetwise elegance. Not one to disregard his recent designs, every new season of AMI introduces new styles alongside recurring staples, which is great for if you find your ideal pairing.

AMI’s latest arrivals of jackets are a true testament to the designer’s commitment to provide clothing for the everyday man.

While the double-breasted blazer has you covered if heading to a business meeting, the navy zip bomber jacket, with its welt pockets, raglan sleeves and full nylon satin lining, will be your best friend on the weekend.

Kiko Kostadinov

Talented Bulgarian-born British designer Kiko Kostadinov may have only established his namesake label in 2016, but in a short matter of years, with a large chunk of those years spent in the pandemic, he has become widely acclaimed. The highly creative designer was even named one of Forbes Europe’s 30 Under 30 in the arts.

For his label, Kiko relies on unusual pattern cutting, meticulous garment construction, and sleek silhouettes, and the more his collections have developed he has delved into asymmetric styling and utilitarian accents. These elements make his garments not only extremely interesting, but unlike anything commonly seen.

Of the recent collection the black crow blazer is a stand out for achieving a smart-looking jacket that still offers a little bit extra with its shoulder pad design element. For something that gives off more of a smart-casual look, we highly recommend the brown McNamara jacket with its little detail elements that have turned an otherwise simple jacket into a must-have item.

Bianca Saunders

Only relatively new to the scene, menswear designer Bianca Saunders is all the rage at the moment for her ability to think outside the box when it comes to menswear. She is also known for her interest in breaking down barriers in menswear, through creating clothes that could normally be considered unusual for menswear.

Going off her latest collection, she seems to be well and truly on the right track.

If there is one thing that Bianca Saunders is shouting loud and clear it is that denim jackets are back, and being such a versatile item, we suggest you select add to cart as soon as possible.

The blue bowl denim jacket provides everything you could want from an original denim jacket, but with a little bit extra pizazz. It includes panelled construction, a two-way zip closure (because, why not), and contrast stitching in yellow.

But, if you are not after a denim jacket, then don’t stress, because the taupe pull over blazer is a great addition to any wardrobe that needs a little bit of extra spice.
