Marks & Spencer has launched a new collection of menswear staples as an extension of its Autograph range.

Marks & Spencer described the collection, called Autograph Essentials, as “modern, sophisticated capsule pieces that will stand the test of time”.

The collection has been designed to offer modern basics that can be worn from one season to the next.

Marks & Spencer head of design for menswear Tony O’Connor said: “We’re seeing a real move towards smarter dressing and our new Autograph Essentials range offers men all the key modern basics for a smart, contemporary look.”

Autograph Essentials is available at 130 Marks & Spencer stores nationwide and online.
