This is no season for wallflowers. Designers are strutting their stuff with striking shapes and distinctive embellishments.
Aquascutum: Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler sent out a collection that focused on the coat in all of its peacock splendor. This isn't outerwear for the faint of heart, but for the drama queen brooding inside every woman. The big, bold collection included trenches with pouf sleeves, nipped waists and oversize collars; long, slim military-inspired numbers, and sexy black frock coats with oversize lapels. Herz and Fidler said that their aim was to capture the heart of the brand. May the beat go on.
