An Insight into Next Season's Style; Zoe Chamberlain Speaks to Julian Fuller, Head of Design for Menswear at Debenhams, about What the Guys Will Be Wearing This Autumn


Byline: Zoe Chamberlain

Will you be bold in Fair Isle jumpers or classic in Back to British style? For 1a little inside information on what to wear this autumn, we went to Julian Fuller, head of design for menswear at Debenhams.

He and his team work on a massive 12ft wall of foam to which they all pin ideas of what's new and fresh, and what they think men should be wearing in the coming seasons.

Julian says: "Due to the recession, everyone is looking for wardrobe staples right now.

"Chinos are continuing to be popular into autumn.

They are lovely paired with statement pieces, such as Fair Isle knits or Native American print jumpers.

"These are simple styles but often with toggle details and big bold patterns.

"This look is huge and it's going to get stronger and stronger through the season.

"A couple of years ago, it was all about skinny jeans and big sloppy jumpers but now these statement jumpers can be worn as outerwear instead of a jacket and can be fairly formal which makes it feel really new.

"If you're unsure, why not wear a cable knit jumper with a patterned scarf - that way if you chicken out at the last minute you can just whip it off!" According to Julian, navy is the new black. He says: "This is a massive statement that people are not wearing black this autumn, it really changes the dynamic of everything they wear."

Cool Britannia continues too, thanks to both Kate and Will's wedding, the forthcoming Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year.
