Words by Matt Huxley

I feel like it’s no secret that I’m attracted to the darker style of things. A shaded corner, the colour black, notions of vampires, ripped clothing and gunmetal. All of these attract me like a piranha to a carcass and now that 90s grunge is back in fashion, it makes it all the more acceptable to start dressing like Dracula.

I’m also interested in playing with lengths. Long layers always flatter tall people, smoothing out any lumps and bumps and elongating your torso. They’re also the perfect trans-seasonal piece for – what is supposed to be – autumn. I’ve subverted the usual layering that I do (long shirt over jeans) and have instead opted for a long flowing coat over a shorter under layer – shorts in this case.

Breezy and dramatic, I think i’ve stumbled on to a winner, especially with the weather still being ridiculously hot.
