Next-level bossWeekend Glitz | Elaine Chung and Natasha Tai 24 Sep 2021
Boss, known for its tailored elegance, has injected an air of casual liveliness into its latest autumn/winter collection.
With the theme "A New Kind of Boss," the collection Next instills functional and innovative elements into classic formal wear.
This season's collection was made with the environs in mind. Classic formal wear is reinterpreted through new and flexible combinations to meet the needs and tastes of urbanites.
Men's formal wear has always been the house's signature, but Boss embraced the new season by switching to a simple, relaxed style with functional details such as pairing a sleek suit jacket with hooded sweatshirts, zippers and quilted cotton to create a combination of elegance and street smarts.
Another element this season is layering. The typical combination of a shirt and trousers is now overlaid with hoodies, knitted sweaters and quilted vests, paired with drawstring joggers and a bold, patterned overcoat.
Exhibit your style by layering fashionable pieces. Dark camouflage prints and bright patterns can work together to turn heads your way.
Inspired by classic campus and sport-style pieces and focusing on the tailoring and selection of materials, outerwear - suit jackets, zipper coats, long coats and checked cloaks - has become the focus of the women's collection.
Sporty elements are incorporated into formal wear, pairing suit jackets and trousers with hooded sweatshirts and sneakers, creating a sense of dynamism.
New designs also include oversized button ups and jackets as well as a throwback to more monochromatic styles.
A limited series uses dolphins to symbolize love. The collection includes T-shirts, hooded sweaters and polo shirts, decorated with prints, embroidery and jacquard patterns, all inspired by the playful mammal.
Part of the proceeds from this series will be used to support charities and organizations dedicated to the welfare and protection of dolphins, calling attention to the need for saving endangered species.
