Margaret Howell Menswear A/W11

The new collection blends cable knits and tactile fabrics such as tweeds and herringbone in modern styles

Margaret Howell's A/W11 collection maintains their tradition for tactile fabrics and modern wearable pieces where they are raised, milled, and lofted on traditional English heritage cloths of Herringbone, Tweed, and 4-ply wools. A pared down colour palette of winter greys and shades of nut brown, tobacco, moss and peat draw inspiration from paintings by Lowry; whilst we see unstructured jackets in harris tweed, top coats with a moleskin collar, and a sheepskin DB coat. The knitwear however, focuses on simple shapes such as their textured rib slipover, a racked rib cardigan, simple saddle crew necks in merino cashmere and natural Shetland, an Aran cardigan and a graphic fairlisle crew - where the mainline collection is mixed with the MHL line to add a functional edge.
