Viva editors share their favourite looks from the new season

The team’s new season wish list


Kate Sylvester jacket, $645, and trousers $385. | “I love a good suit and navy blue, but no one wants to wear a bank uniform, so Kate Sylvester’s dotty ‘Donna’ jacket and ‘Patti’ trousers are a perfect fit for easy versatile winter dressing.” - Janetta Mackay, beauty editor

“I’m looking forward to wearing a grey wool jacket for winter and I have my eye on the beautiful ‘Vincent’ jacket from Crane Brothers that I could easily wear with either a shirt or T-shirt.” - Dan Ahwa, contributing fashion editor / Dan Ahwa

Karen Walker denim jacket, $530, and pants $470. | “I doubt I could pull off double denim, but would happily wear Karen Walker’s tailored indigo jacket — a modern take on a classic.” - Zoe Walker, fashion features and digital editor / Zoe Walker

Kate Sylvester leather dress $1200. | “I really love the ‘Blythe’ dress by Kate Sylvester. It reminds me of the brown leather mini dress my mum used to wear in the 60s, although hers was much shorter! She bought the dress when she was living in Paris and wore it when she returned to Amsterdam, where they were yet to adopt the leather mini dress trend.” - Babiche Martens, photographer / Babiche Martens

Georgia Alice top $329. | “I was very taken with Georgia Alice’s AW15 collection; I particularly love this off-the-shoulder ‘Penelope’ top. Denim is proving to be a big trend this season and I intend to wear a whole lot of it!” - Rosie Kelway, fashion writer / Rosie Kelway

C/O sweater, $680, from Everyday Needs. | “Could there be anything more desirable than voluminous cashmere? Such an expensive fabric is most often bought in smaller, (vaguely) more economical pieces. This sweater, crafted in New Zealand by Tolaga Bay cashmere for Everyday Needs’ own C/O label is luxuriously oversized and oh-so-divine. I would wear it everywhere and anywhere, including to yoga where it would make the ultimate accessory during Savasana." - Rebecca Wadey, wellbeing editor
