Brothers Grimm – step aside, because the fashion house is calling the fairytale shots this winter. Golden Goose is laying down the law on male and female fashion a-like with 3 essentials for each. Thus making today’s Christmas countdown: Six Golden Goose Essentials.
Roll up men because as per usual pearls of wisdom are coming from a bird, so listen up if your game.
1: Chunky Knits- Incorporate some stylish texture into your winter wardrobe with a chunky knit. For AW12 new ombre designs sit alongside seasonal favourites like festive Fair Isles and traditional cable knits. But don’t be fooled by the cosy texture, while heavyweight knits make for the perfect weekend attire they can easily be styled up for the office. Simply wear over a button down shirt or with a blazer for easy 9-5 style.
We love Golden Goose’s crewneck cable knit at £272.
2: Check Point- Calling all Bravehearts! From Camilla to Alexander McQueen, tartan is this season’s hottest fabric. However, it takes the know-how to pull it off. A tartan or checked shirt should be in every man’s wardrobe. It is perfect for teaming with black jeans and dress shoes for a night out or rough and rugged, in the daytime, worn open over a tee.
Golden Goose checks our boxes with this long sleeved shirt for £183.
3: The Art of Layering- As far as layering winter fabrics go, tweed is among the very best – an essential addition to any modern wardrobe. When it comes to tweed, the first thing many associate with the fabric is today’s hot topic: the blazer, a timless, stylish and practical staple. Align your modern, slim cut blazer with a pair of dressy chinos and denim shirt to create a clean-cut look with heritage roots.
Try out Golden Goose’s tweed blazer at £593.
And for the ladies, these items really are golden.
4: Top-notch Trousers- From second-skin leathers and cigarette pants to tailored strides and slouchy boyfriend styles, trousers ruled the runway this autumn. The new-season spin? Sumptuous fabrics and a palette of elegant shades give this mannish basic a distinctly feminine feel.
We chose Golden Goose’s opulent embroidered slim trouser, £228.
5: Baroque n’ Rococo- Dolce & Gabbana set the tone for an opulent feast of Rococo-inspired prints, lavish adornment and decadent fabrics. Balmain, meanwhile, gave us a 21st century-girl version of the look, teaming an intricately embellished top over a boyish shirt with a rockstar-lean trouser.
You could team this Golden Goose essential, £256, with androgynous trousers or wear it bare with mounds of gold bling and opulent accessories.
6: Rise of the Oversize- Big is beautiful this winter, with cocoon coats pillow-sleeved jackets, billowing trousers and softly structured skirts enveloping the collections. Make sure to contrast volume with slimline structure in a stylish pairing of opposites. The easiest way to oversize? A coat.
Our favourite is Golden Goose’s dressing-gown-esque coat at £485.
