We exit summer and start the year off with a new collection by our local brand Old Khaki. Introducing the 2022 Autumn collection with a fresh palette that evolves into a more neutral palette and ends off the season as we ready ourselves for winter with a spicier palette. There is a continued push into casual styling, with a fresh take on back-to-work dressing. We still see a swing into more relaxed fits and a renewed interest in knit dressing following summer. Washed and natural look fibers such as linen still strengthen the move into casual styling. At-home and leisure-time dressing drives longevity in loungewear which is set to stay permanently as it matures into capsule wardrobe of comfortable clothing that can be worn in a two-mile radius of the home.

For menswear, Autumn sees a range that is simple but impactful. Graphics this season have remained quite clean, modern and subtle. Key colours are the newness of a dusty pink paired with washed blacks and toffee taking center stage alongside olive towards the end of the season.

We move on from set dressing to tonal dressing where it is about finding tones across different categories who fall within the same colour paletteand to then pair them together. Sweat set dressing remains key but paired back to outwear, shirting, tops and tees.

Linen blends remain a key fabrication well into Autumn. This mostly comes through in shirting but across both long and short sleeve shirting.

For ladieswear we see a continuation of some styles from summer, with the main focus pertaining to dresses, tops and tees. Print design and colour stories take on a mix between romantic and prairie/ boho look and feel. The start of the season begins with a more pastel story focus leading into neutral tones. February moves into a much softer palette direction into soft pinks and beautiful trending lilac tones and ending off the season with a spicy palette in the last month leading into winter.

We are in a romantic and feminine silhouette season. The range offers beautiful prints as well as special sizzle styles with intricate details and designs that all lend to this feminine story.

New textured fabrications are key across our range of sustainably sourced cotton. We see more surface interest into the range across plain and print. We explore interest fabric bases in knit tops and textured base offerings in knitwear.

This season there is a more focused loungewear capsule. The capsule has a selection of tops and bottom pieces that are created around a tonal colour palette
