Howell

Though I love avant garde, extreme designs such as that of Gareth Pugh or Comme des Garcons, I also love it when designers stick to their guns and create something simple but spectacular non-the-less. After all, wear-ability is important. A designer who always produces classic, attainable looks in her collections is Margaret Howell. I love her work and think she is really under-recognised for her designs. Her recent collection is really beautiful. It has the Britishness of Burberry, the androgyny of Alexander Wang and the nautical chic of Chanel. These are my favourite pieces...

i-D magazine once said "Margaret Howell creates beautiful understated clothes, perfect for everyday life" which I think is a perfect description of her work.
