When it comes to investing in truly special pieces for your wardrobe that will last way beyond the current season and elevate all your outfits for years to come, there’s one brand, in particular, that springs to mind: Totême. As an editor, I often get asked where to turn for pieces with these credentials, and it’s always the first brand I suggest. This is not only because the Swedish label’s collections are beautiful and have the editor-and-influencer stamp of approval a hundred times over but also because the designs manage to be both unique and classic, adding something exciting to your capsule basics while remaining timeless.
The past few seasons from the brand have been so good, all featuring sellout cult hits with fans from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Monikh Dale, including that ubiquitous striped knit, the classic trench and the cosy scarf-jacket, to name a few. The brand refreshingly keeps its trans-seasonal heroes like these in rotation (further proving how classic they are), but we can’t help getting excited each time the brand launches a new collection and adds to its repertoire. This autumn seems like it will be no exception, with fresh pieces alongside the classics that are getting us seriously excited for new-season dressing.
There are nine key pieces from Totême that I’ve already bookmarked as having cult potential, including the new ribbed-knit dress and the dreamy silk tops. So to help you get ahead before they inevitably sell out, I’ve added links below just in case you’ve been thinking about investing in the brand’s elevated offering for a while now.
