A curated round-up of the best new fashion arrivals, hand-picked by our editors


Those in the Northern Hemisphere lamenting long, sunny evenings, as well as those in the Southern Hemisphere stepping into spring, can jointly rejoice in the fact that the new-season collections have arrived. And, this time round, certain designers have brought an unexpectedly soft touch to autumnal hues. Both Jacquemus and Christopher Esber conjured cantaloupe and cream-colored ribbed-knit dresses that, at NET-A-PORTER’s London office, make packing away our high-summer pieces far more bearable. In a slightly denser material than the linens and light cottons we’ve been wafting around in for the past few months, they are ideal transitional pieces. Esber’s Orbit Fran dress has a sculptural pleated skirt and demure side cut-outs featuring a striking jasper stone detail, giving this minimalist shape a modernist edge. Worn with Neous’s understated midi sandals, it makes a chic return-to-the-office look, or, paired with ballet flats, you have yourself a simple but polished WFH ensemble, too.

PORTER’s junior fashion editor, Marquessa Lucas-Box, was drawn to Jacquemus’s sporty polo dress for its similar wearability. “For me, it’s all about investing in versatile pieces that are suitable for any occasion. This open-back, ribbed-knit polo dress is just that. Made from a low-key jersey in a refined cut, it is perfect on warm days with slides or flat sandals. When the weather gets chillier, it can be worn with combat boots and an oversized coat – and, after dark, I’d style it with barely-there sandals, chunky gold hoop earrings and a clutch bag – ideally by Bottega Veneta.

On the runway, the French designer styled it with socks and strappy sandals. To pull this off, seek out delicate, fine-knit ankle-length socks – bulkier versions won’t have the same effect. For something more classic, Loewe’s two-tone, top-stitched backless loafers are a worthy investment that will also work with tailoring and denim.
