High street preview: River Island menswear, autumn 18

Expect football inspirations and a fresh take on preppy Ivy League dressing at River Island menswear for autumn 18.

Glamourous guys

River Island turns on the opulence for autumn, borrowing a 1980s influence from its womenswear range. Baroque swirls and fronds create decadent patterns on T-shirts, shirts, blazers, trousers and puffa jackets – worn together for maximum impact. Satin, velvet and fake fur add to the luxed-up look.

British Ivy League

A preppy air smartens up casual staples, and punches of colour keep it fresh. Outerwear is key for this trend, including a notable shearling jacket and statement checked crombie coat.

To the terraces

River Island took on a footballing flavour, and remixed retro sportswear and smart/casual staples with more functional athleisure pieces. This includes side-stripe joggers, polo shirts, washed denim, high-shine puffa jackets and chunky knitwear, as well as a shearling coat inspired by John Motson, football commentary legend.
