These Are The Seven Items The Viva Team Is Shopping For This Autumn

Here's what we've got our eyes on this autumn


Kate Sylvester coat, $899

This Kate Sylvester Bobby coat is the dream solution to transeasonal layering. It takes the traditional trench and transforms it in dreamy feminine lilac. This coat will work to lift the spirit as autumn draws us into a world where it's all too easy to opt for black. — Amanda Linnell, managing editor

Maggie Marilyn dress, $755

Yes this is another black dress, of which I have a couple, but this beautiful silky version from Maggie Marilyn's season 9 collection is the type of take-you-anywhere gown that I need in my life. I could swan about the office by day and head to a party at night with a simple change of accessories, or avoid embellishments altogether - it's that kind of dress. — Johanna Thornton, deputy editor

Daniel w. Fletcher jacket, $1.005

I like the sharpness of this navy jacket by British designer Daniel W Fletcher. It's the sort of thing I'd wear everyday forever. Made in England with a nod to naval uniforms in Manchester in the 1800s, its utilitarian roots and mix of wool and satin is perfect for both casual and formal occasions. — Dan Ahwa, fashion & creative director

Wynn Hamlyn top, $380

I ordered this silk scarf-style top from Wynn Hamlyn, and am excitedly awaiting its arrival. It's great on its own of course, but I'm also excited to try it layered over a long sleeved top or turtleneck once the weather cools down. — Rosie Herdman, assistant fashion editor

Kowtow bomber jacket, $659 (Available mid March)

I've been wanting a bomber-style jacket and Kowtow's black wool number looks both cosy and cool for Autumn. I'm loving the oversized, masculine shape that I would wear in contrast with more feminine dresses and well-fitting pants or skirts. — Sarah Downs, writer

Tibi knitted backless dress, $1,550

There is nothing cosier or easier in my opinion than a jersey dress in autumn and winter. I am eyeing up this lush green knitted dress from Tibi as my companion in the colder months ahead. I'll also be adding a jumper on top every now and then to mix it up. — Annabel Dickson, fashion assistant

Karen Walker blouse, $495

This autumn I will be wrapping myself up like a present in the ultimate feminine blouse. I can't resist a good pinstripe and the statement bow is treat. — Lucy Casley. designer
