As with every collection we can’t but help ourselves to pay homage to our icon the humble Parka and develop its function and look through each season. AW17 starts with us going back to the humble beginnings… collating every function and detail from inspired vintage pieces and reimagining its function and utility into our modern stylish coats for our contemporary lifestyles.
Designed with the unpredictable British weather in mind, the womenswear collection embraces a versatile and transitional approach to dressing with oversized military inspired parkas, 3-in-1 parkas, quilted faux feather, down jackets, classic heritage wool coats. Functional details from dry waxed finishes, deep bellow pockets and heavy zips with exposed tapes emphasises rugged,
utilitarian features to combine understated style with purpose. The clean and minimalists silhouettes are given a modern lift with the use of luxurious faux fur linings and hood trims, creamy faux sheepskin ‘borg’ highlights paired with plush and velvety corduroy fabrics, utilitarian cotton nylon, and soft to the touch wools.

The autumnal colour palette of traditional military tones and modern green hues are mixed with hints of rustic artisanal deep reds, and opulent dark blue, juxtaposed with cool light grey tones, ecru and sage to give this collection a contemporary yet ageless appeal and luxurious finish.
