Initial reaction:

Girls who are boys. There’s always a conversation going on between masculinity and femininity on the Margaret Howell runway – which upped sticks this season from the designer’s shop to the coolly contemporary Rambert dance studios on the South Bank – and this morning’s show explored roomy menswear silhouettes with pleated trousers, tomboy shorts and Howell’s signature relaxed yet crisp take on the men’s shirt.

How they wore it:

Understated and practical. Slicked back low ponytails that seemed to be coming undone, longline bra tops and chic flat espadrille sandals underscored the collection’s nostalgic mid-century mood. 

Natural order:

With its sandy-coloured linens, stone grey tailoring and creamy pleated skirts worn with woolly jumpers, the collection felt like an ode to the natural world, balancing a modernist disposition with a countryside mood – quintessential honest, authentic Margaret Howell.
