The F/W 2018 Collection: Now Century Modern

The latest collection from Bergstrom Originals is a thoroughly current take on the mid-century modern aesthetic - featuring a sleek, simplicity in shape, embracing function in design, and layering natural hues with bold pops of colour and pattern.

A Fresh Look in Neutrals
Neutrals for Fall at Bergstrom

Stock your wardrobe with a palette of earthy neutrals that will serve you from autumn to winter - and seasons beyond. Charcoal, fawn, and deep, mossy green… these earthy tones are designed for mixing up and layering up as the cool weather encroaches.

Take the Duchess Blouse and Morrison Cropped Trousers in English check - this black-on-tan mini check print looks absolutely regal, worn together as a jumpsuit. Soften the look with the charcoal Kilarney Sweater, featuring a quilted cable-knit pattern, to bring a subtle textural element to this countryside-chic ensemble.

Love the classic black-and-white look? Try combining these neutrals in a mini check and an interlocking tile print. With the Miller Turtleneck Dress layered under our Hideki Wrap Tunic, these intricate designs complement each other in soft conversation. The Miller Dress is cut from a soft, stretch jersey - hugging your curves but providing full coverage in the long sleeves and oversized turtleneck collar. Enter the Hideki Tunic - wrapping around your body with a cinched waist and subtle flare off the hips, this extra layer of warmth will also flatter your figure.

The Portia Dress looks sophisticated in a deep grey knit, patterned with a tone-on-tone diamond print. With a loose A-line cut and wide, curved neckline, this vintage-inspired design shines in a modern context. Plus, the patch pockets are guaranteed to be a well-loved feature. Layer the Portia Dress over our Duchess Blouse or Roscoe Top - accenting the rollneck with a collar element to add interest as well as warmth!

The Perfect Print

Accompanying the softer tones and textural fabrics of the new collection, Bergstrom’s love affair with colour and pattern is still going strong. And you don’t have to go far to find that perfect print! Cool florals or Moroccan-inspired medallions feature in these stand-out pieces for special occasions - and everyday style.  

paisley print bergstrom

Showcase the Waterford Paisley print with the Duchess Blouse and matching Skirt. Worn together, these pieces give a dress effect in an energizing print of paisley and stripes. The rich, deep hues of olive, ochre, magenta, and royal blue look gorgeous in concert with this elegant silhouette. Alternatively, wear the blouse or skirt on their own as a magnetic pop of colour paired with an array of neutrals.  

Moroccan prints at Bergstrom

The Bella Dress oozes style in this Marrakesh Spice print. Rust, fuschia, and hot pink over a navy background will add a little fire to your fall wardrobe. With a simple bell shape - loosely fitting with a natural drape - this tunic dress is an easy and comfortable piece that still dresses you to the nines. Pair with some sexy heels and a pendant necklace, and you’ll be ready for an evening out!


We absolutely love this combination in vibrant teals and greens, accented with jewel tone blooms: the Portia Dress, this time in a teal floral print covering crepe-textured fabric, looks dynamite over our Roscoe Polo Top in moss mix. The cool colour palette unites the graphic and garden elements of a bold pattern combo. Wear this set with gold jewellery and tall black boots.

Stylish Suiting Options

For powerful fashion with an uncompromisingly feminine edge, enjoy this season’s suiting options. Soft, comfortable fabrics and refined, sleek shapes combine to make these pieces amazingly versatile. Mix and match styles for a work wardrobe that never gets old!

sergeant pepper style jacket

The Sgt. Pepper Jacket is a stately outer layer in a luxurious ponte de roma. This rich fabric is strong yet pliant, with a subtle sense of stretch. With a fitted bodice and a slight flare over the hips, this coat creates a sense of clean lines and military precision. Wear this piece over our signature Jetty Pants for a sharp look in suiting. Plus, as a fall jacket the Sgt. Pepper looks stunning over A-line skirts and dresses.

moss colour suiting

Moss green is the colour of the season - and this plaid print complements tradition with a contemporary style. The beautiful Ashford Pencil Skirt is form-fitting with a flexible feel, from the high waistband to the wide flutter hem, hanging a touch longer in the back. Top this vintage look with the mod cut of the Barclay Jacket - a stripped-down, princess-seamed design with a short stand collar and exposed zip. With a patterned top or a simple white blouse, this pairing looks crisp and current.

plaid suiting combinations  

Finally, a Bergstrom favourite is the Barclay Jacket and Pants - in matching ponte fabrics, the charcoal plaid is threaded through with a subtle burgundy accent. Side panels in both the jacket and trousers are set on the bias for contrast - adding a dimensional edge to the clean-lined ensemble. As with all our suiting options, these two pieces work well together, but can also make an outfit on their own. Try the Barclay Jacket as an outer layer with denim and a big circle scarf for a more casual approach. Or, cozy up with the Barclay Pants and our ultra comfy Perry Pullover on a cold autumn day!
