Margaret Howell Spring/Summer 2014 collection
At first glance the latest range from Margaret Howell could be viewed as all of her others – somber and utilitarian. But look closer and although the Spring/Summer 2014 collection remains true to Howell’s simple aesthetic there’s a play on structure that runs through the garments.
Most noticeable is the increased volume of the trousers – tailored but wide legged, formal in fabric and detail, yet totally casual in the way they sit above smart black shoes. Also adding to this are pyjama shirts with placket details and unstructured blazers. Added to this was another fine selection of outerwear in styles ranging from macs to anoraks and the ever classic Harrington.
The colour palette is, as you’d expect, grounded in navy blue and differing tones of grey. But added to this are brighter shades of blue and orange and a deep mustard yellow. So what you get is the same but different and that’s a good thing in my book.
