ASOS Gets Androgynous With Boy-Meets-Babe Aesthetics
As is often the way with fall, a surge of aubergine, black, and navy make their appearances, mirroring the season’s greying skies and darkening nights. Staying close to those base-colour benchmarks, ASOS prints florals on jersey and adds bright white-collared shirts so as to shed a little light on the season. Taking the lead from the masters of boyish cool, the line makes a nod to Alexander Wang’s sport-chic style and those sharp silhouettes of Acne. The result? Androgyny crafted into chunky knits, cropped shirts, wide-leg pants, and woolen overalls, along with some token girly deets like peplum hems and skater skirts. Elsewhere contrast rides high with shined golden cuffs atop aubergine knits; tulle skirts to shiny shell tops; and satin meets wool (who meets fur) in their “we-need-it” winter coat. And though we vowed to banish baseball caps to the bottom of our high-school gym bags, we’ll break our pinky promises now for these luxe leather ones.
