Three Ways To Wear The So-Called Alpine Trend

1 week agoWords by Ms Molly Isabella Smith

Every year, twice a year, after an exhausting succession of fashion weeks, MR PORTER’s very wise and all-knowing editors get together and tirelessly collate the new season trends. And, now that summer is but a distant memory, it’s time we shared them with you. Today: get to know the Alpine adventure trend. This outdoor-inspired mode of dressing is as much a state of mind as it is a practical undertaking. There are plenty of suitably sensible pieces of kit involved – think down jackets, cargo trousers and waterproof windbreakers – but there’s also a dose of smarter, city-specific pieces smattered throughout, as well as a helping of streetwear to liven things up a bit. The trick to getting the right balance between these elements is, as usual, all in the wearing. Follow our lead to get it spot on.
