Find out what’s selling now in the world of premium fashion
Tim Wolstenholme Co-owner of Andrew Watson Menswear in Belfast
Shirts from Hackett (£100) and Eton (£135) are our bestsellers, as well as shoes from Oliver Sweeney (£295). We’re finding slightly darker colours and blue shades are popular and, for shoes, the classic brown and tan is doing well. We don’t have any new brands at the moment, but we’ve just got the new spring 2017 collection in and it’s performing really well.
Matt Bradley General manager of Giulio Menswear in Cambridge
Everything from Gucci is doing well (£200-£500). Saint Laurent is another bestseller, especially the T-shirts and knitwear (£300-£700). Moncler jackets (£400-£700) are also selling quickly. Light blues and reds are doing well at the moment, and black always performs well. We have a lot of Asian customers who prefer the top-end brands, and that’s why they come here.
True religion jeans
Alfie Hope Store manager of Capital Collection in Grimsby
Vivienne Westwood is our top brand for shirts, particularly in blue and white (£200). Versace’s white T-shirts (£75) are doing well and so are True Religion mid-washed denim jeans (£250). Customers know the brands are great quality and will come back to buy exactly the same. We have had a long relationship with those brands. New names we stock include Comme des Garçons, Billionaire Boys Club and DSquared2.
Sean Machin Store manager of Christopher Scotney in Leicester
Stone Island is our bestseller and jackets (£450) and overshirts (£250) are selling quickly. CP Company’s jackets (£450) and overshirts (£250) are doing equally as well. Jeans from Armani Jeans (from £105) are also popular. Stone Island and CP Company keep their brand exclusive and maintain popularity and Armani Jeans is selling well because they are a good price for designer jeans. Pastel colours, such as light blues and greens, are proving popular for spring 17.

Nicole Gallacher Marketing manager of Lewis Yates in Billericay
Our customers are very loyal to Michael Kors, particularly for coats and jackets (£150-£250). Dresses (£145) and tops (£85-£145) from Samsøe & Samsøe are very popular. The products are a good price and are easy to wear with any outfit. Set Fashion is also doing well, especially the blouses (£150) and leather jackets (£300). All its garments are good quality and fit very nicely. We’re finding that green, rust tones, khaki and camel are the bestselling colours this season.
Nick Florry Managing director of the Changing Room in Tunbridge Wells
Our top sellers are Kenzo tops (£65) and sweatshirts (£200) in all colours. Although Balmain is a new brand for us, its navy blue and black jackets (£1,200-£1,400) are already performing incredibly well. Moncler coats (£500-£800) in cream, navy blue and pink are popular as well. Those brands are what customers want at the moment and they’re staying loyal to them.
Jane Stanley Owner of Private Collection in Devon
Spring coats are our top selling product, especially from Marella (£199-£399). Pinko cashmere sweaters (£299) are also really popular. Tops from Max & Moi (£179) are another customer favourite because they’re comfortable and have some lovely sleeve detailing, which is a good solution for customers looking to cover their arms. At the moment, traditional creams, whites and greys are popular, but so is coral and some reds.
Diane von furstenberg
Susan Nicholas Owner of Mosaique in Stratford
Diane von Furstenberg is our top-selling label and the cashmere sweaters and cardigans (£150-£350) are performing especially well. Trousers from Max Mara and Sportmax are doing well (both £150-£350). The colours proving popular at the moment are navy, cream, pale pink and a bit of yellow.
