All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day…
Taking inspiration from the 1965 hit ‘California Dreaming’ by The Mamas and the Papas we focus our attention this month on the late sixties/seventies aesthetic coming through this season. High-waist flares, floral shirts and knee high boots for women and more subtly corduroy, roll necks, plaid shirts and the iconic Clarks weaver shoe for men. Oranges, reds, yellows and browns are repeated throughout the labels; colours associated with Autumnal sunsets and the time of harvest. Like the lyrics to this song, the month of September has a nostalgic feel to it. We remember returning to school after a long summer. We add extra layers as the days get cooler. Thinking of the winter to come we stock up on basics and practical attire. Heading back to school or work. There is an element of new beginnings, of change.
