River Island injects effortless style this winter
Aug '13
Knitwear is a key player in the seasons collection, with chunky shawl cardigans, playful fairisles and a slightly more mature take on the novelty knit for this Christmas. The 'Jingle My Bells' men's jumper plays down the kitsch levels with deep shades of claret and mustard in the design, a fun piece for young and old alike.

Further bolstering River Island's reputation for strong tailoring, a mixture of classic and statement evening wear pieces ensure that something is on offer for both the peacock and the everyman alike.

Bold pieces such as the brocade dinner jacket in a dark navy and the Austin purple blazer in a rich aubergine purple are well suited to the more adventurous gents' Christmas attire. On the flip side, the charcoal 3-piece evening suit has a classic sartorial appeal.

The key to completing an outfit is the right accessories; so for Christmas, menswear has got all bases covered. From heavy-duty thick scarves in deep blocks of colour and playful patterns to brave all elements, through to the hardworking study satchel, a daily essential suitable for the academic and the office worker.

Dandy trinkets and authentic details add sharp finishing touches to the formal looks in the collection, such as the black flower lapel pin and chrome pocket watch.

A strong undercurrent of British heritage still runs strong for winter's footwear range, with signature round toe shapes in suedes and patent leathers. The AD wedge sole men's shoe is still a cornerstone of the menswear collection, this time in a low cut for a more refined appeal.
