Once again fusing the aesthetics of high-end streetwear and luxury menswear, British clothier River Island brings forth a seasonal lookbook showcasing its upcoming range for Holiday 2013. Pairing expert tailoring with chunky knits and bold accessories for a festive-yet-effortless style, the collection takes inspiration from the novelty holiday sweaters of old to create pullover and shawl cardigans that downplay the kitsch in favor of Fair Isle patterns and a more mature color palette. Joining the knits is a collection of suiting that includes a navy dinner jacket, deep purple blazer, and a charcoal three-piece evening suit while thick scarves, a study satchel, black flower lapel pin, and chrome pocket watch add an additional sartorial touch. Displaying a strong penchant for British heritage, River Island’s Holiday 2013 pieces are due out in time for Christmas.
