The designer referenced the Northern Isles of Scotland and the North Sea oil boom of the Seventies for her fall 2013 collection, imagining that a rich American oil baron heads to a remote Scottish village, where he plans to build an oil port. This tale resulted in elegantly executed work wear references, seen in panels on the flanks and sleeves of boxy blazers, in an oilskin parka and a black boiler suit. Suits made from thick, treated wool looked modern, while boxy, buttoned-up shirts and skinny trousers came in traditional tartan. Trousers also came in a looser, longer shape, nipped at the ankle with one sharp tuck.
