Joseph Fashion for Women
Joseph's 'Sloppy Joe' sweater is knitted from a chunky cotton-blend that has a supple drape enhanced by its curved hem. Cut for a relaxed fit, this white piece has wide ribbed trims, an oversized turtleneck and a slightly longer back for extra coverage. Push up the sleeves or half-tuck the hem into your pants to balance the volume.
Louise Trotter's message for Joseph's Spring '18 collection is: You have to be comfortable in your uniform. So perfect for nearly every summer event, this 'Bronte' runway dress is cut from daisy-print silk with asymmetric panels of black lace through the body for contrast. Pick out the colors in the flowers with bright shoes, adding a cardigan for cooler evenings.
Drawing inspiration from artist David Hockney, Joseph's Resort '18 lineup features many '70s-inflected silhouettes, including this 'Crosby' midi dress. It's cut from fluid cream silk crepe de chine and printed with miniature red hearts that look like polka dots from afar. The gathered seams highlight the dropped waist.
Joseph's 'Laurent' blazer is cut from smooth wool-twill in a simple, 'just right' silhouette that looks smart but feels easy and comfortable. The shoulders are slightly padded for definition, while the back vent gives you ease of movement. The deep navy hue works really well with neutrals, or something brighter like this cobalt shirt.
Joseph's 'Laurent' blazer is the sort of piece that makes you look instantly polished and put-together - perfect for days when you need that extra vote of confidence, be it at work or on a social occasion.

Try yours with wide-leg pants and a white tee for a fresh take on suiting.
This season it's all about layering. Texture, contrasting fabrics and a touch of nostalgia too, says Joseph, and we think this cream sweater is the perfect starting point for your outfit.

The Sevres is Joseph's coveted take on the everyday tote now reworked in moss-green and white calf leather for Resort 2018. Made in Italy the bucket shape is suspended from a wide buckle-fastening top handle that's finished with black lacquered edges and is accompanied by a detachable zip-fastening pouch. Cary it against a backdrop of casual separates - think a ribbed sweater and wide-leg trousers.
The curved panel that sits high on the thigh of these khaki-grey wool-twill Alta trousers is one of a few abstract accents spotted on Joseph's AW17 runway.

The rich merlot hue of Joseph's 'Ryder' jacket makes a softer alternative to black. Inspired by classic biker styles, it's made from supple leather that will age beautifully the more you wear it.
