LONDON, September 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

River Island presents a relaxed, urban trend for autumn that is strong and filled with attitude. Downtown is all about simple, modern classics that can be worn from day to night throughout the new season.

Downtown takes influences from Soho New York in the late 70s early 80s, with oversized swagger coats layered over geo printed and graphic intarsia knits. The trend is 'Boy dressing meets Punk' with Red tartans used against the more traditional fabrics of gents tweeds, herringbone and dogtooth found in smart tailoring.

The muses for this trend are the off-duty models that look naturally chic strolling between shows in relaxed denim, oversized cable knits and boyfriend coats.

Muted shades of black, grey and white dominate the colour palette; however layering really makes the difference with this versatile trend. The introduction of metallic pieces and bold textures really lift the look.

Play around with different textures to make the look your own - soft knitwear, tough-luxe leather, suede and denim combine to add interest to this effortlessly cool collection that is online and in-store now.
