As school bells ring in the dis­tance, that’s the cue to start in­vest­ing in class­room­wor­thy jack­ets

Some fash­ions are fleet­ing flights of fancy, while oth­ers cir­cle back every year and de­mand more at­ten­tion. Just as surely as sum­mer turns to au­tumn, blaz­ers will al­ways be a great trans-sea­sonal in­vest­ment. This year take cues from school­child­ren them­selves, with tra­di­tional pip­ing and her­ring­bone fab­rics. The trick to mak­ing th­ese school­boy blaz­ers look more board­room than board­ing school, more class than class­room, is in pair­ing them with un­ex­pected ac­ces­sories. From the fanny packs buck­led waist-high over preppy jack­ets at Gucci, to the furry ear­rings off­set­ting se­ri­ous tweeds at Ba­len­ci­aga and the furry pastel­coloured baker boy hats at Prada, ev­ery­one is giv­ing back-to-school an edge of the bizarre. Think less prim school­girl, more luxe tru­ant.
