Tailoring & trousers

Velvet or cord sb blazer and The new joggers

Velvet or cord sb blazer

The look An easy, highly commercial key item to inject a flash of rich colour into a tailoring range, or stick to classic camel as at Salvatore Ferragamo. Silhouettes veer around 1sb and 2sb shapes, maybe with exaggerated lapels and patch pockets to help create a 1970s feel, which is particularly relevant for the younger market.

Key colours Old gold, yellow (see D&G), red (see Kenzo), pumpkin, chestnut brown, teal, electric blue.

Key fabrics Cotton velvet, silk velvet, washed fine-wale corduroy.

The new joggers

The look Create a casual/formal mix with a casually styled jog pant (as at Maison Martin Margiela) - knit, woven or even leather - teamed with a tailored jacket. The trend is basically about a pant with a gathered cuff and a pull-on drawstring or elasticated waistband. Best suited to the young and contemporary markets.

Key colours All shades of grey (see Vivienne Westwood), old gold (as at 3.1 Phillip Lim), camel.

Key fabrics Sweats and jersey brushed wools, drills and twills, corduroy, leather, denim.

More key tailoring and trouser items Knitted tailoring, double-breasted blazer, longer-bodied jacket, full-leg trouser
