Heritage sports label Lacoste created a modern range with a retro undertone, revamping styles in the brand’s 80-year-strong archives to breathe new life into 70’s looks. An après-ski aesthetic emerges with cosy velvet tracksuits and zip-up turtlenecks, as clean-cut culottes are layered over tall, slouchy leather boots. Sport stripes, textured overcoats and slogan knits highlight the wintry mood.

 Eastern Military – 3.1 Phillip Lim

Now in its 10th year, 3.1 Phillip Lim continues to cement its status as one of New York’s strongest contemporary brands. Functional utility styles express a new Eastern exoticism, as outerwear combines technical padding with kimono silhouettes, and military shackets flourish with floral embroidery. Other highlights include velvet booties, masculine tailoring and heritage fabric sportswear, all toned in muted earthy shades.

From past and present to future, as Opening Ceremony envision the womenswear of the 22nd century winter. Fabrics make a statement with foiled or holographic surfaces, while slicked-down hair creates a forward look with visor-like eyewear. Chunky layered knits and thigh-high boots add warmth to ensembles, as relaxed tees and palazzo pants are set off with Space Age silver colourways.
