Buyer's Picks AW23

The leaves have turned, the temperatures falling, and our Autumn/Winter 2023 collection has landed. To celebrate, we sat down with some of our amazing buyers to share some of the inspirations behind our new line, introduce their favourite pieces, and offer some styling tips for the colder months. 

Struggling to find the perfect gift to stand out and stand the test of time? George and Hannah have you covered. 

Hannah escobar - BUYER 

Can you describe the inspiration behind our AW23 collection? 

Classic styling and elegant silhouettes laid the foundation for our Autumn/Winter collection, with a nod to trend. We also incorporated elements of comfort, without compromising style. For colour palette, we favoured blacks with pops of cream, winter whites, classic tans, and soft gold metallics. We’re playing with texture this season, adding depth to the range with croc effect leathers, patent leather, smooth kid suedes and tumbled leather finishes. Some of the new pieces that I’m really excited by are Lareina, Brielle, Stefania, Clarabella, Domenica, and Darrah. 

When it comes to Autumn/Winter, what are your essential styling tips? 

The key to autumn/winter styling is to centre your look around tailored pieces, like oversized blazers or belted trousers, with key accessories and lots of cosy layering. My advice? Invest in a pair of ankle boots or knee-high boots to step you through the colder months. They not only keep your feet warm but the add a chic element to any outfit! 

If you could only pick one (Jones) shoe to wear this season, which one would it be? 

Clarabella in tan are a fabulous pair of ankle boots. The square toe design feels contemporary, yet classic, and they have more room for the toes to enhance comfort without compromising style. The rich tan leather easily compliments a casual outfit or a smarter look. I love the subtle platform, not only does this add to the overall stylish look but it distributes your weight more evenly, so they are extremely comfortable. To me these boots are an absolute stand out pick! 

GEORGE PAVER - SENIOR BUYER 

Can you describe the inspiration behind our AW23 collection? 

We built the range around our core Jones values of prioritising product quality and craftmanship, while considering seasonal trends. This collection explores different leather textures., from warmer suedes to  transition from spring, and smarter polished leathers for autumn, to patent leathers for the party season, and oiled and grained leathers for Winter. 

Personally? My favourite styles are RIAN, GRAY, and DENZEL (which all feature in our campaign and TV ad). 

When it comes to Autumn/Winter, what are your essential styling tips? 

For me, the secret to AW styling lies in planning your outfit around the most important item in your wardrobe- shoes (of course). Traditional tailoring and classic craftmanship provide a strong base for your outfit. If in doubt, Stick to the classics. From chunky knitwear and jeans to a well-tailored suit, you can't go wrong. 

The best thing about winter? It's layering season. 

If you could only pick one (Jones) shoe to wear this season, which one would it be? 

One shoe to wear for the season? I'm torn between either RIAN or GRAY, I've found myself reaching for  both on repeat this season. 

RIAN pairs perfectly throughout the transitional to autumnal period, in both black and brown. It's a traditional penny loafer with a chunkier welt and sole, timeless with a twist. 

GRAY is such a versatile Chelsea boot. It's smart and sleek, with traditional brogue puncturing. I've been pairing GRAY with a suit, but the lightweight cleated sole also lends itself to casual styling with denim and knitwear.
