G2000’s Winter 17’ collection offers a brand new concept for the G2000 woman.The corporate apparel brand has long established itself as the go-to label for smart, spruced up office wear. But now with a new product director on board, G2000 will be redirecting its brand aesthetic vision to more flattering silhouettes and edgier looks. Think: fashionable, yet practical daily wear that’ll take you from desk to dinner without a hitch.

To hit the ground running, the winter collection features wide range of travel essentials for those on the go this season. From multi-way accessories to bat-wing capes and thick wool coats, we’ve certainly found our new contemporary, rotating workwear wardrobe with this collection. Below, the top 5 looks we can’t wait to snag for the office.


Strong bold colours

Asymmetric Hem Wool Coat , $119

What better way to drive away the winter blues than to opt for a prominent, bright coral coat? This wool coat is characterised by its clean lines, soft relaxed structure and pristine asymmetrical cross-front design. Pair this with tweed culottes, a staple white sweater and a pair of soft pleather boots.

A classic camel coat

Long Wool Coat with Belt, $199

No article of clothing quite delivers that “forever feeling” as well as a structured camel coat. An heirloom buy determined to splice up your style for years to come, a good caramel camel coat is the stealth trophy purchase come fall/winter season. This one from G2000 has a rigid lapel collar structured to fan out for a rougher look. Ending at the perfect length — right above the knee, this coat will look immaculate next to a T-shirt dress and a pair of tall boots.

Casual + Sleek tailoring

Half Sleeve Cardigan, $69; Striped Sweater, $59

To nail that “I care, but not too much” look effortlessly in style, always turn to your favourite sweater-cum-cardigan pairing. This half-sleeved knit cardigan is loose and flowy; a direct contrast to its body-fitting counterpart; the striped aubergine sweater. Team this ensemble with a pair of high-waisted paperbag trousers in deep autumnal shades, and you’re set for the winter (or even for combatting the 24/7 freezing AC back at the office).


The modern woman’s Power Suit

Double Breasted Blazer, $129; Lace Top, $43; Tweed Tapered Pants with Belt, $79

The modern day woman’s power suit consists of: a sturdy blazer, a pair of high-waisted trousers (preferably plastered with some form of check design) and a good ol’ white tee. And this chic interpretation by G2000 is hitting us with all the feels (mainly, lust and desire). Zest up this ensemble by layering a lace camisole over the t-shirt for a cheeky play on the rigid lines.


A good houndstooth jacket

Houndstooth Jacket, $149

Featuring a boxy silhouette, magnified houndstooth prints and chunky black buttons, this classic jacket is anything but OTT; in fact, we’ve got our eyes on this must-have for its smart boyish charm and ‘Cool Girl’ sensibility. Throw this over a solid coloured midi and slip on a pair of sneakers for a casual look that still looks put-together with sophistication.
