Paula looks at the key trends for win­ter.

Ican­not see past the light­weight puffer jack­ets this sea­son. So light in fact, you can scrunch them into a hosiery bag. The style above weighs 280gms (the weight of your favourite glass of cham­pagne!) and the longer style, page 50 is 350gms, both come with their own pack­able bag. These weight­less won­ders are great lit­tle trav­ellers and far re­moved from the après ski styles of the 90’s. These are city or coun­try chic and cov­etable, es­pe­cially the navy. It’s a graphic sea­son print wise and ar­chi­tec­turally a step up from prints of the past. Note pages 28 and 29, it seems that fash­ion is at last mov­ing for­ward. Boots and shoes are no­tice­ably chunky ex­cept for the clas­sic knee high flat or stiletto styles. You’ll en­joy the new stretch boots avail­able in light brown, blue or dark brown, add-ons to black (see flat knee highs right) which ev­ery­one will want a pair of. And don’t just think leather. The patent bootie is a gem with opaque hose, as is the Avana wedge in the slim ver­sion (my per­sonal favourite) on page 53. Lace up brogues look at home with man style cropped pants and trouser suits, see page 22. Adding our new pack­aged sporty stripe tights will keep the look mod­ern. I have a pas­sion right now for the big ca­bled sweaters. We have them in a Merino An­gora blend, shorter styles for wear­ing with a skirt, page 64 and long for skinny pants or tights. I need to tell you that we have in­tro­duced a light win­ter fab­ric with a cosy han­dle. It’s a mix of cash­mere, Mi­cro­modal and Ly­cra and yes… it’s wash­able. Styles are quite for­giv­ing and a lit­tle looser than our ES­SEN­TIAL clas­sics. Women are now un­der­stand­ing how our af­ford­able LAY­ERS pieces can trans­form neck­lines and sleeve lengths. I will add and al­ter styles but the colour­fast fab­ric is fan­tas­tic. I take them on every trip to cre­ate day to din­ner looks for warmth or when I want to add a sleeve. Take note: the black is a per­fect match with Mi­cro­jer­sey and you can now get them on­line at www.paularyan­lay­
