It’s all about fit and fabric at Margaret Howell, who showed an elegant lineup of men’s, women’s and unisex looks at her store on Wigmore Street. Women’s looks included a version of her bestselling trousers based on slim ski pants; dark pinstripe wool ones with an elasticated waist, and lightweight, layer-able cotton gauze T-shirts.
The knitwear was elegant and ranged from a cashmere and wool V-neck chevron style to a lightweight navy blue polo with a pleated peter pan collar. She also showed off fun T-bar shoes for dashing around town in style.
For men, the focus was on slightly heavier fabrics: densely woven Japanese denim worked into boxy tops and wide-legged painter’s pants; and cotton drill trousers with a stretchy waist. The knits were slouchy and luscious, and included wool vests and slouchy Guernsey sweaters, while short A-line jackets in olive and navy were chic and practical, just like most designs that passes through Howell’s hands.
