M&S to unveil A/W line with focus on reworked classicism
Aug '13
Marks & Spencer will unveil its new menswear collections for the Autumn/Winter season, with a focus on reworked classicism. 

Traditional menswear staples take on a new flair; checks are oversized, herringbone weaves are casual and scaled up, leather detailing trims wool outerwear and layering is slick, combining dark on dark styling.

Suiting also plays into the modern reworking of classic pieces. The range includes double breasted, wide lapel jackets in the finest chalk stripe fabric, cut on a slimmer block for an updated silhouette.

Considered details are important, and play a key part in the refined look of the season, with working cuffs, trims under collars and intricate prints epitomising the new masculine look.

Texture and layering come into their own in the winter season, and claret and mustard make the perfect pairing of optimistic colour. For the most casual of looks, vintage ski inspired styles, in an array of strong confident colours, represent true winter.

New to the season is Marks & Spencer’s Best of British Collection, in partnership with the British Fashion Council. This collection combines Marks & Spencer’s rich heritage with modern styling to create timeless pieces championing the Best of British Collection craftsmanship and quality.


Autograph embodies luxury and sophistication. Referencing International runway collections, Autograph presents a sleek range of confident and modern key pieces for the season in high quality fabrics and finishes.

Blue Harbour

Blue Harbour’s style is masculine, understated and relaxed with authentic sporting influences. Crisp, pure cottons and clean styling create a groomed, considered look of confident, classical pieces that are carefully chosen and put together.


Collezione encapsulates timeless Italian style, using sophisticated trend references and fabrics, translating them into an elegant range of relaxed formalwear. Capturing impeccable attention to detail with luxurious European fabrics, Collezione mixes paired down style with a sophisticated colour palette.

M&S Man

M&S Man offers timelessly stylish pieces for every day. From sharp tailoring to contemporary classics, M&S Man embodies paired down, classic style producing a great value collection of modern, high quality wardrobe staples.

North Coast

North Coast is defined by true authentic casualwear style that is inspired by vintage roots and workwear clothing. Looks are easy to put together, with an underlying relaxed carefree attitude.
