The British brand marked its 120 years in business with a collection that tapped into the house check and featuredloose-fitting suits in camel, army green, and black double-face cashmere.

Creative director Filippo Scuffi went for dresses galore, some of which were languid and belted at the waist, while others were more more shapely and tailored.

Wraparound-style skirts were cinched at the waist with floppy belts that mimicked those of a trench coat, while others boasted box pleats and skinny gold belts.

The show was appealing and youthful — and marred only by a series of strange exits such as a knitted ballgown with buttons running down the side, and a strapless, floor-sweeping trench dress that wouldn’t keep anyone warm — or dry.
