Britannia Cool For Twin Magazine Blog


Read my review of the Margaret Howell A/W 12 collection here.


For over three decades, Margaret Howell has been designing clothes for the quintessential British woman. This A/W 12 season, she provided a twist on traditional tweed, wool berets and menswear tailoring.
Inspired by Britain’s winter landscape, Shetland wool and a modern interpretation of traditional materials, Howell created a collection of silk and cotton button-downs, pleated drop-waist dresses and traditional outerwear in the form of sheepskin jackets and belted trench coats.  Held in a colour palette of navy, charcoal and moss green and accessorised with black leather penny loafers, each look was a perfect incarnation of the casual Britannia woman.
With a wearable collection tweaked with intriguing construction details, Howell proves that traditional doesn’t have to mean tedious.

  1. Hey there, how are you doing. I loved your article on
    designer coats
    . A lovely designer coat that you have reviewed
    here, to say the least. One of my favorites is Calvin Klein.
    Sure, they make some nice jeans, but they're also moving into the
    designer coat industry these days too. Keep a look out for
    CK designer coats!
