Name a better autumn style exemplar than Adele’s Lanvin look in her ‘Easy On Me’ video. For powerhouse singer’s return to form, five years after her last musical release, she commissioned a tonal ensemble from Bruno Sialelli at Lanvin in which to belt out her latest ballad. Perfect for this time of year, Adele’s burnt – orange ribbed turtleneck, sepia – brown high – waisted wool trousers and oxblood patent leather trench coat took seasonal dressing to its most literal point, bu rather than cliched, the Tottenham – born performer looked really good.
PARIS, FRANCE – Made all the more dramatic for the fact the ‘Easy On Me’ video begins in black and white, and then bursts into colour, Adele’s Catherine Deneuve – inspired caramel blow dry, plum lipstick and magenta manicure only adds to the autumnal glamour. Styled by Jamie Mizrahi, who accented the look with a Lanvin agate signet ring and a gold agate mother and daughter logo necklace, Adele provided a masterclass in how to do October dressing without Halloween costuming even entering the picture.
Vinil trench coats have been the rock’n’roll way to wear the classic wardrobe staple for some time. Beloved by Brits girls, such as Alexa Chung, and Scandi street – stylers, who are dedicated to Saks Potts’s outerwear, a patent mac means you can make little effort with the rest of your outfit and still look fashion – forward.
Adele’s subtle ’70s – esque ‘Easy On Me’ coat is equally hard to peg to a specific season, which is exactly her style direction.
