For Autumn/Winter 2011-2012, ‘Margaret Howell’ presented a collection that channeled the English schoolgirl of times gone by. The line featured traditional tweed coats cinched in at the waist with leather belts and teamed with loose-fitting jodhpurs; thick black headbands were worn under a selection of trilby hats, provided by legendary milliner Christy’s Hats; and ice-cream jumpers were paired with delicate blue chiffon midi skirts with crisp pleats.

The collection also featured deep burgundy corduroy skirts were matched with navy in the form of over-sized overcoats; more navy, in pinafore style dresses, was teamed with cream long-sleeved shirts pulled in at the waist to create a lady-like silhouette; and pretty paisley silk scarves were worn around the neck and neatly tucked into belts.

Detailing was kept simple and understated, being kept discreetly at the posterior – buttons, buckles and bows that ties up some of the shirts were kept strictly at the back. The schoolgirl palette consisted of deep blues, pale pinks, cream, navy, black an burgundy, with fabrics, such as plush velvet, corduroys, chiffons and soft knits, were mixed and matched to give texture.

So without further ado we present the Autumn/Winter Womenswear 2011-2012 collection from Margaret Howell…Enjoy!
