In their first 3D broadcast to date, BOSS Black impressed at the Fall/Winter 2012 showing in Beijing. The venue, the National Agricultural Exhibition Centre, offered the perfect atmosphere of lights and lines to the collection’s sophisticated cuts. Despite the futuristic feel to the venue and broadcast, the collection still oozed feel-good design and structured tailoring.
If you want a well-tailored suit, a fashionable but professional sweater or a new look that‘s a great investment, BOSS Black is a great option. The brand is known for its must-have, well-tailored pieces in neutral, easy-to-wear colours. After all, they’ve been dressing executives, professional creatives and – probably – your best-dressed friend for years.
Want to see what all the fuss is about? Hot from the runway in Beijing, we’ve deconstructed five of our favourite looks from next season’s BOSS Black collection.
Clean and sophisticated, this is the perfect investment piece for the upcoming season. A unique yet versatile suit is rare to find and fashioned so well by BOSS Black. Wear this to a wedding or at a business lunch. Mix the jacket with dark denim and you have a great look for evening.
Perfectly structured, this suit is a timeless classic. You’ll be wearing it for years to come, in fall or spring, winter or summer. If you want to keep the look trendy and smooth, match your tie to the fabric of your suit. To make it a little more casual, opt for a patterned tie.
Wear black leather shoes to the office, but trade them in for cognac suede in the evening or on the weekend. If you want to be adventurous, try a burnt orange or indigo blue pair.
I love a strong scarf. Somehow embodying power and masculinity, this look will help you shake up the sometimes bland-fashioned fall and winter months.
The leather jacket paired with the oversized scarf will have you feeling both luxurious and rugged. Keep a pair of black leather gloves in your pocket during chillier months and go for black leather in your briefcase or murse.
If you want to take this look to the office, trade the white bottoms for dark denim or trousers. A fail-safe piece, this perfectly tailored black leather jacket can be worn again and again, for years to come.
Stylish and modern, this is a classic example of BOSS Black’s sophisticated tailoring. True to the brand’s nature, you can wear this ensemble just about anywhere.
If you haven’t already noticed, calling BOSS Black the go-to for well-crafted neutrals is an understatement. Here, you have a detailed trench in beige, a classic cream cable knit, silver trousers and brown-black leathers to boot.
In the winter, add a black scarf to this look and throw on a pair of gloves. In the warmer months, swap your cream knit for a cream button-up and throw on a silk scarf.
Take this look to a meeting, but switch the trousers with denim and it’s great for the kids’ Saturday hockey game, too.
This black-on-black, textured look is my favourite of the collection. It’s practically ageless and so easy to pull off; it’s bad-boy meets board room.
Again, take this look to the office or out for drinks with friends. BOSS Black just knows how to craft transitional clothing. Bootcut jeans are more appropriate for the office, but have fun with a pair of black skinny jeans if that’s your style.
If you’re looking to accessorize for colder weather, throw on a chunky knit scarf to make this look a little less serious or a classic steel grey scarf to keep it professional. Black leather gloves will finish this look perfectly for winter.
Game of Thrones inspired fashion? It’s working. I can’t argue with a man looking that good in a fluffy turtleneck.
Not fluffy, really, but it sure is textured. And it’s a mock turtleneck, to be specific. This look isn’t just for the fashion-forward crowd. It’s great for post-ski in the winter and campfires on chilly summer nights. You can keep a sweater like this one in the car and throw it over a t-shirt and shorts when the night cools down.
For the office, keep the black accessories as seen here. The dark leather keeps this look professional and polished. If you go for distressed brown leather, for example, this look becomes too casual.
To dress it up a little more, trade the grey trousers for a black pair. The switch will instantly make you look a little more polished, albeit a little less trendy.
Keep an eye out for this collection, which should roll into boutiques at the end of summer.
