Debenhams AW13 menswear challenge

I love autumn. I love the rich hues in the trees, especially on sunny mornings. And though the air may be sharp with the tell-tale signs of winter's approach, I love the excuse to pull on a pair of boots and wrap myself up in a stripy scarf.

Whitmoor Common in nearby Worplesdon, Surrey, is rather spectacular at this time of the year. The woodland has transformed to orange and brown, and the open marshland is a picture-perfect landscape. But I cannot take credit for these photographs. These shots are the eye and handiwork of Guildford based fashion photographer Saskia Lawson, who I previously interviewed in 2012. I do not often have the privilege of a guest photographer, and Saskia was a delight to collaborate with for this style feature.

The challenge set by Debenhams was to style three key pieces from their AW13 designer collections. I decided on an autumnal colour palette of blue and brown, for which I chose Ben Sherman teal trousers, Loake tan boots, and a John Rocha stripy scarf. These were teamed with a staple white shirt to accentuate the colours. The look was completed with a brown belt and two of my favourite accessories - a Daniel Wellington wristwatch and my new Osiris glasses from Specsavers.

Massive thanks to the talented Saskia Lawson for shooting these photos. I hope this is not the only time I get to work with her. Go 'like' her Facebook page and visit her website to see some of her amazing images, including a couple of shoots for Pebble Zine. If you are also a photographer and fancy collaborating with me on a personal style feature, I would love to hear from you. Send me an e-mail: unlimitedbyjk@yahoo.co.uk
