Although we were not lucky enough to attend the Aquascutum AW12 show on Saturday, we couldn’t resist sharing these gorgeous images from the new collection with you. The quintessentially British label took to the runway yesterday afternoon and showcased an array of quality-crafted pieces in bonded wools, reworked english tweeds, fluid silks, shearling and contemporary leather. With Joanna Sykes (design director for the label) claiming her inspiration was derived from ‘iconic British interiors and architectural profiles’ it is no wonder such a sleek and no-nonsense collection came about.
Personally, the aviator-style jacket (pictured below) won my heart, and I am glad to see this style still rocking the catwalk after three consecutive seasons. It is no wonder really, when the aviator oozes versatility and rock-star attitude (I mean, who doesn’t love a pilot?). It is also brilliant to see a British label who has been established since 1851, and holds such international clout as Aquascutum does, still showing in the UK. Long live Britannia!
