Margaret Howell AW14

Nostalgic and mellow in mossy twinsets, flushed school girl cheeks and woolly beanies

Fashion Show
HOWELL-0208

Initial reaction:

With its mossy twinsets, calf length corduroy skirts and quintessentially British tweed jackets, the collection felt like a scene out of the movie adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, only without the depressing ending and with lots more luxe factor.

Soundtrack:

Nostalgic and mellow yet also upbeat, with Booker T and the MGs “Green Onions” and Spencer Davis Group “Keep On Running” on the stereo, and Frank Wilson “Do I love you (Indeed I do)” for the finale.

How they wore it:

With messy braided ponytails and flushed schoolgirl cheeks. There was a sense of youthfulness to the looks, underscored by the woolly beanies and socks pulled high up the leg.

Ease factor:

There is an enduring easy calm to Howell's quintessentially British universe, and this season was no different.

Stand out look:

A timeless charcoal trench coat with polished buttons.
