For her inagural collection for British heritage brand Aquascutum, Joanna Sykes promised to “bring together a new, clean aesthetic with Aquascutum’s rich brand heritage to present a fresh British look for the house.” The Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection featured patent leather, neoprene, tweed and shearling – mixed and layered together to create a contemporary countrywear range with a distinct ‘outdoorsy’ feel.
Unsurprisingly, the stars of the British Icons collections were the outerwear peices. Trenchcoats were given exaggerated proportions and colour blocking, with classic peacoats and field jackets receiving similar treatment. A touch of effortless glamour was added to the collection with soft, silkdresses in a variety of lengths and shapes. A thumbs up to Aquascutum.
