It’s been a minute, but we’re back with the items we’re lusting after this Autumn. The clocks have officially gone back, and that means winter wear is in. CULTED CURATES aims to save you from endless scrolling, whilst still satisfying the impulse buying urge. From gilets to be@rbricks, womenswear and menswear, it’s all below.

I’m looking at quite a few items at the moment as it’s time to refresh my winter wardrobe. It’s the same story every year: as soon as it starts getting noticeably colder, I feel like I don’t have any winter clothes to wear. Thanks to my two completely different winter and summer personalities, my wardrobe has no smooth transition. I suddenly go from my chilled surfer-vibe skater jeans and Stüssy t-shirts, to dark, smart and utilitarian. The items I’ve listed reflect the wardrobe I am working on right now, comfortable and warm, but sharp and mostly black, because why not.

Looking for a casual jacket that actually keeps you warm is tough in the winter, well one that isn’t a puffer anyway. My top items for this week are fairly practical, keeping me warm and comfortable, because it’s not true what they say, fashion doesn’t have to be pain. I don’t normally like to wear scarves but i’ll certainly make an exception for this Daily Paper logo one- and for the price that won’t make me resort to eating beans on toast for the rest of the month. The Martine Rose bag is a nice way to jazz up the whole outfit too. All in all, I should really be saving for Christmas presents right now but my wishlist is telling me otherwise. Sorry to anyone that doesn’t receive a gift this year, I decided to treat myself instead.

I’ve recently moved into a new flat and currently my desk is looking a bit bare, and frankly the whole flat is void of any art – so what better way to kick off my art collection than with the new Kieth Haring be@rbrick. This morning i stepped outside it and it was surprisingly FREEZING, so it’s now more imperative than ever that i buy a winter jacket. After shopping around, i settled on the brown Axel Arigato puffer for a REASONABLE price. Paired with the Aimé Leon Dore NB 550’s (seriously, not a want, but an imperative need) and a classic Ami Paris crewneck and we’re good to go this winter. 

BE@RBRICK KEITH HARING – £645 / US$880 (APPROX.)

Welcome to the list of things I feel like I’ve been umming and ahhing about for a while now, but now the colder weather has meant they’ve moved from their respective websites into my baskets. Obsessed with the Acne scarves, and how they’re a simple way to elevate a relatively plain outfit whilst keeping you cozy, and have been searching for a sturdy Coach-pillow-tabi-inspired bag for a while now that won’t break the bank. This option from & Other Stories fits the bill in terms of colour, but I might continue looking for a more pillowy option before committing. The others may be destined for a fantasy Christmas list.

ACNE STUDIOS SCARF – £220 / US$260

For me, winter is the time to relish in the technical side of fashion; the clothes that can keep you warm and dry through the coldest and wettest time of year. I’ve got my eye on a few functional items like a warm Rab jacket and some Gore-Tex Hokas, as well as a couple of pieces to elevate my winter wardrobe from the vintage sweatshirts and hoodies I’ve been wearing for ages. I often wear dark colours in winter so this time I want to switch it up and go for things that aren’t just black.

RAB ELECTRON PRO DOWN JACKET – £255 / US$347 (APPROX.)
