In her final collection for the brand, creative director Emma Hill was faithful to her favorite English themes. Among this season’s inspirations were stately homes and their gardens, and the cartoons from the “Mr. Men” series of children’s books.
That translated into a feminine — but restrained — collection that featured heaps of bright flowers, as in splashy prints on silk dresses and trousers; embroideries around collars, and sequins and sparkles spilling down the seams of trapeze dresses. Flowers also wove their way onto silk jacquard coats and clutch bags.
Leather played a big role, too, in the form of dark coats with ponyskin panels and skirts and tops with chunky, horizontal suede stripes.
