The Edit: Sandro Man winter 2019 collection
French fashion-stalwart Sandro Man has been busy putting together a more formal collection just in time for the fall/winter season.
The more relaxed pieces of the summer are no more, and in their place a wardrobe halfway between formal tailoring and street-style spontaneity. Tailoring is huge for Sandro Man this season, which is put together with typical Parisian nonchalance: two or three-button wool suits are worn - without interruption - with a t-shirt or turtleneck.
Shirling Denim Jacket AED1,495
Expect prim and proper black leather boots or derbies for the feet, along with three-quarter length wool coats. Business stripes are back in fashion, but this time given a casual feel, and – unusually – some new fabrics also make their winter debut, including stonewashed denim.
Sandro Man took inspiration from the working-class elegance of The Smith’s former front man, which matches the authenticity of a workwear wardrobe. Elsewhere, expect chunky knits, zip-roll necks and hand-knit jumpers paired with oversized lumberjack shirts.
Statement pieces, such as bulky aviator jackets worn oversized, as well as denim jackets worn with high-neck sailor jumpers.
From a colour perspective, Sandro has embraced electric green or vivid pink in statement pieces.
The entire collection falls in line with the brand’s merging of vintage or street references, with up-to-the-minute aesthetic.
It’s tradition meets modernity, all wrapped up with refined elegance.

Apollo Jacket AED2,490
For the Winter 2019 collection, the Sandro Man studio has put together a wardrobe halfway between formal tailoring and the spontaneity of the street.
The tailoring is crafted with a distinctly Parisian nonchalance. The two or three-button wool suits are worn - without interruption - with a t-shirt or turtleneck. On the feet, black leather boots or derbies with a grooved sole set the tempo for three-quarter length wool cloth coats. There is a recurrent obsession with business stripes, but they are given a casual feel. Raglan armholes and stonewashed denim affirm the look’s easy vibe. The studio wrong-foots the bourgeois codes of a Parisian wardrobe and brings herringbone and houndstooth check motifs to life, in the style of Morrissey.
The working-class elegance of The Smiths’ former frontman goes hand in hand with the authenticity of a workwear wardrobe. The Sandro man spontaneously slips on a zip roll neck, a chunky hand-knit jumper and a lumberjack overshirt. He plays with the volumes of aviator jackets, whether oversized or more fitted. His overalls are made of denim and worn with a high-neck sailor jumper. His corduroy or denim jacket features an ecru shearling lining. When he’s looking for a striking colour, he plumps for electric green or vivid pink.
The style direction falls in line with the brand’s consistent vocabulary, merging vintage or street culture references with a pure, up-to-the-minute aesthetic. The studio blends tradition and modernity with a refined elegance.
Brown Houndstooth Blazer AED2,420
Light chequered jacket AED1,965
White rollneck shirt AED990
The entire collection is available from Sandro boutiques from Dubai's Mall of the Emirates, The Dubai Mall and Abu Dhabi's Yas Mall.
