Directional details take centre stage this season, with sturdy studs, industrial embellishment, a plethora of peplums, feathers and a sea of gems. Our AW12 collection is awash with detail.
SPRINT TO THE SPOTLIGHT
Sprint to the spotlight reignites our love for the 90s and sees the revival of sports luxe. Silhouettes remain clean and classic and details keep the trend true to the 90s with zips, cutaways and embellishment. Pops of pink bring personality to the collection mixed back with old school prints of plaids and dog tooth.
There’s a military precision for AW12 which sees a parade of tailored coats equipped with gold buttons and epaulettes, quilting and studs. This season sees a return to cargo and functionality with khaki green the colour on everyone’s wish list. The focus is on luxe leather and lamé all embracing clean cut silhouettes.
BEYOND THE SPARKLE
Adorned and encrusted with an abundance of gems, sequins and jewels this collection really makes a huge season statement. Jaquards, silks, satins and embellishment all reign supreme in this collection with highlights including intricate laser detailing.
From lace to velvet, sheer silk to sharp tailoring, gothic romanticism is back in a big way but with a jaunty new edge. Victoriana with a gothic twist, high necks, ruffled shirts and formal blouses are key to the look - kept modern with notes of royal hues. Tuxedos walk the line between practicality and chic.
Knitwear heroine is a mix of texture and fabrics ranging from mohair, fur, leather and shearling, to foiled lace and chiffon. This season we’re stockpiling loopy knits, ponchos, wraps, buttons ups and fur gilets.
Tartan has been given a new lease of life taking its cue from our heritage range. With bold classics and subtle influences, this story gives a nod to 60s trend and icons. Key shapes and silhouettes include drop waists, peplums, peter pan collars and shift dresses.
