Autumn Winter 20
Autumn Winter introduces a wave of innovations that smartly evolve Serena Bute’s effortless, ageless lexicon. “Versatility is a vital part of my ethos. Elements like detachable collars, side buttoning oversized shirts, flexible waistbands lend each item subtly different personalities,” says Bute.Shop Collection
VERSATILITYThe Boyfriend Pant is a distinctly elegant style that combines the virtues of masculine tailoring and the relaxed silhouette of the brand’s signature jogger. The cut features a wide loose leg, adjustable waistband buttoning and patch pockets. In a two-tone mix of dogtooth cotton and triacetate, it looks punchy while in a side-striped viscose silk or velvet, the look is glamorous yet laid back teamed with a matching two-tone Serena Shirt. The Alice trouser, by contrast, features a grosgrain ribbon tie, an elasticated back and slit hems to wear with boots or heels. Meanwhile, the Lola style with its elasticated cuff and utility pocket is Bute’s take on the cargo pant. A new identifier – a red tab – appears on pockets.
Two new shirt designs providing multiple options are the Detachable Collar oversize man’s shirt that comes with double cuffs. It’s sibling, the Oversize Side Slit style can be worn unbuttoned to the bra line allowing the fluid fabric to flow. Freedom of movement is emphasized in every design. The Shirt Dress in pink or red crepe de chine is the ideal travel companion, viscose Bias Silk Skirt and velvet trimmed long Slip Dress are fashioned as contemporary wardrobe classics in a myriad of hues. A reversible Cropped Bomber in two-tone contrast of stone and navy is the season’s ideal cover up.
For the first time, Bute introduces a sustainable Triacetate (made from wood pulp and recycled filaments), a tactile fabric with a gentle sheen. All materials, including silk velvet, viscose, cotton and crepe de chine, are sourced with care. Colours for Autumn Winter range from luscious mixes of mushroom, rosewood, and ink black, and polar white to jewel bright pink, crimson and sapphire.
