The Old Khaki autumn/winter range for 2018 will be available in stores and online in April. This year it’s all about cool, well-made clothing that can take bold urbanites from one experience to the next without breaking a sweat.

The collection is made up of unbeatable wardrobe essentials  that can be stashed in a weekender for an on-the-fly getaway, to be dressed  up from basic to extra within split seconds.

The result is one of the most inspiring collections yet – a contemporary take  on the unaffected swagger and authentic, languid cool that typified 1970s
streetwear. Think Almost Famous meets GIRLS, only with way less drama and  plenty of reimagined, urban-adapted wardrobe staples.

Man, oh man

The key elements of the AW18 menswear range are wintery textures and bold  colours, underpinned by perennial denim classics, as well as  re-imagined
pieces with on-trend washes and contemporary silhouettes. Expect a fresh  denim look with a cleaner rinse wash that can be worn with a turn up and  matching trucker jacket for added edge.

Girls will be girls

The AW18 ladieswear range mixes urban casual items with contemporary  interpretations of iconic 70s pieces – think Jane Birkin meets Francois Hardy.
This includes wide-leg dungarees, a Sherpa-lined denim trucker jacket, fluffy  knitwear and jackets, velvet and a dash of monochrome stripes.

The colour
palette also has a retro feel and includes vibrant yellows, mustards, bold reds  and forest greens offset by dusty pinks, greys and indigo blues. Bold basics  are the name of the game, with intricate details like bell sleeves, pretty frills  and interesting colour combinations setting it apart.

Put your foot in it

The Old Khaki AW18 shoe game is strong. Boots will always be an essential to  complete any winter wardrobe, but this season there are plenty of sneakers
and shoes to go around. The men’s range includes sneakers in low tops and  boot style, Flyknit-style sneakers, and a wide variety of lace-up Derby boots.

Look out for the Demsey Italian suede lace-up and Kendrick tumbled leather  variations. On the ladies’ side of things, boots rule the roost. The Rare Earth
Alexi combat boots take a firm style stand, while the Rare Earth Brody  challenges the norm with some serious hardware. Coming to suede,  the Saskia, Lenah, Sloane and Roxy cover all your bases.

All the bells and whistles

Running with the 70s theme, faux fur is back. Indulge in fluffy throws, wrap up  warm in oversized scarves and top it all off with lashings of deeply-hued
leather. Pops of deep golden yellow and berry-toned reds feature  throughout, with fresh design details that delight at every turn.
