It’s been a long, hot summer! The days might be getting shorter, but at Merc we’re actually quite excited about feeling that autumn chill in the air and starting to see the leaves turn this year. A new season always feels like a bit of a fresh start, too. Plus, the Autumn Winter Collection is here, and we can’t wait to start layering up our “new in” items.
Comfortable, simple, functional – for our AW18 collection we have followed our guiding principle of creating pieces that are easy to wear, yet make you look nicely put together at all times. Knowing how unpredictable our British weather can be, we have opted for materials, which are soft, breathable and well-insulated. Light enough for autumn, but also perfect for combining them to warm winter outfits. Our delicate cotton jumpers and snug hoodies have arrived just in time for the colder days. Classic coats and jackets are also a main part of the collection and our high-quality materials make an appearance in our impeccably cut shirts as well.
Make sure that you’re well equipped in preparation for winter walks and cosy weekends.
Merc’s latest collections have been designed to be mixed and matched, providing modern sophistication and practicality to your Autumn Winter wardrobe.
The focus for our Merc London Collection is, once again, ‘Urban Utility’ and a wardrobe of comfortable pieces, which are continually wearable. The materials are dominated by soft and natural fabrics, which are perfect for wrapping up in, from hoodies and sweats to the BETHNAL Canvas Work Jacket with its full press stud fastening and the collection’s new signature tartan ticket. Simple and clean silhouettes are combined with a colour palette, which is inspired by the seasons it is worn in – dark shades of blues and greens are broken up by crisp whites and mellow greys. The collection is rounded of by functional details, such as utility pockets, and a few Military touches, for example, in the designs of the EUSTON Polo and TUFNELL Jumper. Brighter colours in trims and patterns keep the look updated, and creative.
As always, we strive to also deliver a perfect range of refined essentials. The Merc Originals Collection includes our most loyal classics. Pick from sartorial shirts, timeless jackets, vintage inspired polos and smart sta press trousers. Looking back to our outerwear heritage, the AW18 collection offers classic coats in parka and wool varieties. Combining British fabrics with modern techniques; tartan, tweed and checks, which are paired with technical nylons and prime coatings. A key design this season is the Corduroy Harrington.
Regardless if you’re dressing for one of the winter season’s many festive occasions or just wanting to look sharp on the weekends – with our Originals you’ll be on the right track. The shirts convince with plain elegance or prints which are bold enough to make a statement, yet subtle enough not to overwhelm. Our vintage inspired vertical stripe polos, or a classic knit teamed with a simple tee are ideal outfit options for the more casual days at home, or out with friends and family.
