Autumnal edge: diving into the deep red tones of fashion

Though it’s more commonly known as autumn on this side of the world, the fact this season’s moniker is known to some as fall is a fashionable little irony, as we’re falling for this shade in all its seasonal glory.

Whether you think of it as plum, burgundy, deep red, maroon, wine or even oxblood as it was known when it broke out as 2012’s seasonal shade, this moody tone signifies that the warm weather is officially coming to an end.
Incorporate it with some snuggly accessories or snap up a coat in this colour. It is after all, the hottest look around – both in the figurative and literal sense of the expression.

Bold & the beautiful: Token’s take on this season’s accessory trends

Autumn brings both sunshine and showers and, to celebrate the season, stunning on-trend jewellery, scarves, gloves and sunnies are all at Token in Avonhead Shopping Centre.

Jewellery is going bold, says owner Eliza Rattray. Stella & Gemma earrings stun with feathers or heavy-chorded tassels in soft blush, blues, pinks and greys. It’s a refined twist on boho.
An exciting new jewellery range in Token is Wanderlust & Co, with its quixotic touch of the interstellar. Fine metals, in intricate detail and bold shapes, also include a charming astrology range.
Eliza has bought in lots of scarves – in autumnal hues of turmeric, olive, burgundy and navy. Snoods, faux-fur collars, chunky cable-knits, and fine patterned florals for warmer days, finish any outfit.
Stella & Gemma’s great-priced gloves are adorned with fur, pom poms and tassels, while its sunglasses range sees slightly smaller frames this season – with a retro edge. And the new Quay Sunglasses are oh so the latest thing.

“It’s all good fashion fodder here – with a twist,” she says. “Pretty prints, bling cardigans – so cute and different. There are lots of blues, textures, twin sets and stripes, and scarves to match.

NYDJ jeans’ winter range has landed, and timeless New Zealand-made Anne Mardell dresses and tops come in adorable patterns in sizes 8 to 18.
When Ali was a youngster, her favourite saying was “I’m made in the shade” – meaning I’m cool, home ‘n’ hosed. And that’s how she likes her clients to feel – relaxed and comfortable. “I buy in what’s easy to wear, and what fits and hangs beautifully. You just put it on and feel great.”
