The Margaret Howell FW 2012 collection embodies a natural, effortless style. Howell is inspired by authenticity in nature -- a certain organic ruggedness.
The line boasts classic English tailoring in combination with the coziest of fabrics. The artist favors heavy wools, cottons, cashmeres and blended linens. The apparel is simple and traditional with modern accents. Basic shirts are played up with straight-cut collars and turtlenecks are enhanced with roll-layered necks. The wool trousers featured are cut in a loose, yet slim silhouette. The designer successfully avoids the over-exposed use of skinny-cut pants, but maintains a modern edge with a pleatless waist. The collection is for a man with an assured, confident style. The vibe of the attire is laid-back but put together.
