Autumn-Winter 2011/12 –  A contrasting composition of fabrics dominated the show. Velvet, heritage tweed, leather, fur and a dabble of delicate chiffon were thrown into the mix to create an autumnal collection. Rusty coloured ribbed tights were symptomatic of the outdoorsy feel, they were worn under large tweed culottes. A rugged overlay was also present taking the guise of boiled wool coats in panels of mustard, cherry and brown. Wool was everywhere. There was a brown wool pencil skirt with oversized pockets and a white sleeveless leather dress had bands of wool over the skirt. Fur crept into many looks, acting as bibbed scarf, creating a long gilet or dominating whole coats. Pleat front trousers with narrow turn ups at the ankles were boyfriend fit, they slouched off the models adding nonchalance to the tweed tailoring. Dark evening wear bore sparkling organza sleeves, they were a delicate contrast to the heavy textures and epitomised the array of fabrics that were on offer.
