Designs in Focus: Amour London

Latest posts by Matthew Hoy (see all)

Summer is fast coming to an end but never fear, a change in season means new wardrobes. This week I have discovered a young London designer whose jackets really caught my eye. Amour LDN was launched only this year and boasts proudly UK-made clothes.

Red Leather Bomber Jacket

I Just love the intensity of this jacket and the on-trend bomber cut is a must have. It can be worn as both casual with a funky tee and acid-wash jeans or add a relaxed feel to your post-work clobber before you head out for a drink. Due to its colour, use it as a focal point in your outfit as too much colour can become tacky.

Knitted Pullover

Now I am a self-confessed knitwear addict, on the backseat of my car at any time of the year you can find up to two pullovers for just I case moments. I love the texture this pullover has to it, which is both pleasing on the eye and gifts it a lovely natural feel. Personally I would match this with a pair of chinos, some killer sneakers and a cocktail with mates. The thing about a pullover is that whilst it gives you that needed warmth it too hides sweat-blotches caused by nervous first dates and if you have well defined arms it shows them off whilst hiding any tummy you might be worried about.

Black and Gold Panel Sweater

Once again due to the jacket’s accents of gold this would act as your focal piece. If you look closely the gold has a floral print which adds some nice detail. The location of the highlight is clever because it acts like a necklace in the way it draws your eyes attention towards the chest and face. Once again the cut is really good as it fits well and compliments the masculine shape. I would pair this with a pair of black denims and casual sneakers.

You can get all of these awesome jackets from their website and check in with me in the weeks to come as I showcase more independent designers.
