Autumn collection: Design spotlightSeptember 2020
There’s so much to love about our latest collection. Alongside enduring favourites like our supersoft merino knits, perfect-fit trousers and the ever-popular occasion dresses, we’ve added all kinds of exciting new styles, from thoughtfully designed tops to exclusive prints.
From so many lush textures, gorgeous colours, and cosy knits, it’s simply impossible to choose our favourites. Instead, we’re shining the spotlight on some of the most unique pieces in the collection – and we asked our Derbyshire design team to tell us more about what makes them so special.
Ready-for-anything printed dresses
“We’ve got some fab new prints in our autumn collection. And while we know everyone loves a pretty floral, these are something a bit different – they’re really contemporary, featuring geometric patterns and bold colours. We’ve chosen those colours really carefully, opting for versatile, autumnal hues that will go well with blue and black separates. After all, when the weather turns chilly, they’ll need to look great with a jacket and tights.”
Beautifully designed jersey essentials
“Jersey tops are wardrobe staples, whatever the season. They go with both jeans and skirts, and layer really well under cuddly knits. But the simplest things can still be special. This season, you’ll spot all kinds of clever design details in our jersey tops, like gathered sides to flatter waists, soft pleats to create shape, and sophisticated wrap-effect fronts. It’s never just a top at David Nieper.”
Modern jackets for every day
“During autumn and into winter, you’re unlikely to be heading out the house without a jacket – it’s much too cold! For a polished, put-together look, your outerwear should be just as carefully considered as your outfit. Take our super versatile quilted jacket, for example. We’ve upgraded the collarless, zip-front design with a warm and cuddly lining, then added a subtle quilted texture for a touch of something different. It goes with almost everything, it’s practical, and it’s fashionable – we’d call that a wardrobe essential.”
Contemporary knitwear styles
"Our knitwear team has been really busy this year! Along with the usual essential merino knits, they’ve created some exciting new additions like our striped roll-neck, which features subtly narrowed stripes to flatter your shape. The new cardicoat is also really special, knitted in a thick double-sided jacquard that’s certain to keep you cosy.
