“I may be a man who loves the heat, but the cooler months certainly have their perks. Summer is all about sleek dresses and chic bikinis but, for autumn/winter, it’s all about having fun with fashion.
In the colder months, more clothes are required – so use them to make a statement. Huge trends for autumn/winter are checks and animal print, both of which inspired my latest collection for Debenhams in a big way.
Play into the trends by going wild in my leopard print pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are huge for AW13, stylish for the office and sexy on the dancefloor. A snakeskin top makes for a fabulous separate with a classic pair of black trousers – team with heels to reveal full animal magic.
Another trend worth ‘checking’ out is checks – the long grey checked coat in my collection is a personal favourite. Classic Hollywood stars, such as Hitchcock’s blondes, were so effortlessly stylish. For me, this coat gives the lady who wears it the same effortless chic. Paired with a chic shift or simple tee and jeans, the effect is stunning.
As well as the key trends, my AW13 collection offers staple styles that the BDL woman will love such as the camel wrap coat and my bold printed tunics. Trendy or classic, my Principles by Ben de Lisi collection offers must-have styles for the sophisticated woman – as a matter of ‘Principle’, of course!”
Ben de Lisi may be a self-confessed lover of summer, yet he certainly knows how to embrace autumn/winter with style. Now you’ve seen what Ben loves about his AW collection, we thought we’d show you an example or two of how magical the new season range really is, in an animalistic sort of way…
Comprising of beautiful dresses, classic shoes and elegant party outfits, Ben de Lisi is going wild with animal prints this autumn/winter, a trend that clearly demonstrates how Ben can take a classic and rework it for a fabulous fit for the modern, contemporary women.
From the leopard print pencil skirt to gorgeous wrap style coats, Ben does classic with unmistakable panache. We suggest following his lead and teaming these garments with bold and beautiful colours, such as pillarbox red – it’s certainly one way to ensure you stand out from the grey weather (another reliable ‘classic’ of the autumn/winter season).
Smart leather ankle boots with buckles, courts that will ‘work’ fashionably well in the boardroom, dazzling jewellery – be it simple pieces or elegant statements – all look fabulous alongside gorgeous totes in a range of stunning shades.
Spoilt for choice? Ben de Lisi designs can have that effect. Here in head office we’re forever scoping out the samples for a sneak peek ourselves.
