The recession saw some stay-at-home collections come through last season but whilst Wakako Kishimoto and Mark Eley looked to the homes of the past (namely ones with chintzy aesthetics) for inspiration, that doesn't necessarily mean the clothes are for staying-at-home. As always, a clash of visual references result in clothes that are always thinking of wearability as well as quirkiness. Stripes, their signature zig-zag prints and a pheasant feather print that made a silk trouser and shirt combo look like lux pyjamas you'd want to step out in.
