This season, Jake Sargent and Daniel Corrigan, the design duo behind Simon Miller, launched their women’s collection. Inspired by the American Southwest and all the natural textures of its landscapes, the tightly edited lineup featured tops and skirts in open-weave knits, classic ribbed tops and dresses, wide-cuffed denim pants and a suede sleeveless coat. There was also a made-in-Japan capsule collection, which included an allover dark denim look.
Sargent and Corrigan also launched calf-leather bags in bucket styles that were the perfect accessory to the laid-back collection. The bags joined the label’s strong accessories collaborations: Moscot x Simon Miller sunglasses; jewelry from Rebecca Pinto and Jojo Japanese sandals. Overall the women’s collection was classic Americana in a cool and modern way.
The desert tones worked well in the men’s assortment, especially in the terra-cotta suede jacket paired with ripped jeans, which the designers offered up in a looser silhouette. And the new aspects weren’t just in women’s. The brand also reintroduced knitwear and significantly increased its focus on outerwear for men — welcome additions to this pleasing and wearable lineup.
