From beautiful basics to style statements, our November wish list is the perfect mix of must-have pieces.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
The latest H&M collaboration, with quirky Parisian label Kenzo, features bold colour pops and punchy prints, and is showcased by a group of young activists and artists chosen as ambassadors for the collection. Harriet Verney (above), senior and digital editor at LOVE magazine, models the gorgeous Nelson coat, €179. Check out the H&M x KENZO lookbook here.
Summer’s pyjama dressing trend has translated seamlessly into the new season, courtesy of Etro, Celine and Alberta Ferretti. Add heavier fabrics into the mix this time round – velvets, brocades and weighty lines will add warmth without compromising the boudoir vibe.
In a season where a strong silhouette is key to standing out for all the right reasons, Sarah Bond’s pared-back but ultra-modern pieces have caught our imagination. Navy and pink A-line coat, ??1,760 at sarah-bond.com.

DRESS IT UP
Watching Victoria Beckham’s modest manner when showing her new collection to British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman in the recent TV documentary Absolutely Fashion?has endeared her to us even more than before. This gorgeous dress from Beckham’s AW16 collection is at the top of our wish list – it’s the perfect interpretation of modern workwear.
Irish jewellery designer Genevieve Howard, whose designs have been exhibited worldwide, manipulates paper and uses a laser cutting technique to create wearable sculptures. We love the architectural style of these paper bangles. Worn together, they’ll make a great statement, €400 at genevievehowarddesign.com.
