Foundation Pieces

Make our hero pieces the basis of your new season’s wardrobe.

New season: new foundation pieces. These are the can’t-do-without dresses, tops and trousers that you can rely on to update all your other clothes as we move towards the cooler months. They are the forever staples that are guaranteed to achieve effortless contemporary chic going forwards into autumn 2017 and then beyond that, into winter and spring.

Essential basics for the new season

It’s crucial that these hero pieces earn their place as the basis of your new autumn/winter wardrobe. To do this they must be beautifully cut, versatile and comfortable to wear for that morning meeting, for coffee with friends, for walking the dog, for planes and trains and car journeys. They must be easy to dress up simply with a statement shoe or pair of heels for cocktails, the theatre, for dinners out. They need to really flatter you, whatever size and height you are. And they need to add a cool contemporary note to your wardrobe by signalling and celebrating the most wearable of current trends.

ME+EM autumn/winter 2017 is focused on these beautiful and versatile pieces. Make them the building blocks for all your looks going forward.

The Ultimate Dress

The ultimate, wear-everywhere, dress…. Feminine and minimalist at the same time, cut to flatter all body shapes and sizes and comfortable to wear. For work, for evenings with a statement bag, this is the dress that equals failsafe elegance, however you style it.

Three Key Pieces

Our detachable cuff jacket feels light and luxurious to wear, looks sharp and delivers dawn-to-dusk Parisian chic. Team with the dream lightweight knit for easy trans-seasonal style and wear both with our ultra-flattering pleated skirt.
