Where the wild things are
Taking inspiration from nature is nothing new, but that doesn't make it any less stylish.
The autumn-winter seasonal trends were showcased at the recent New York Fashion Week, where you'd be forgiven for forgetting you were there to watch a catwalk show.
Ensembles of furs, feathers and plant-inspired outfits were a common sight, fusing together a host of browns, greens, creams and golds.
This eau de nature seems like a perfect excuse to capitalise on the heritage themed fashion beginning to emerge in the run up to the London Olympics, where an emphasis on all things British looks set to make its mark on runways at home and abroad.
By fusing together best of British and natural-inspired attire, there's no reason you can't go country chic wherever you are.
The Wilder Dress in a gold salmon shade brings together an exotic leopard print across a jersey material, designed to cling to all the right places, while keeping you classy and covered with its round neck and long sleeves.
Its viscose/elasthane fabric is soft and supple, giving you all the movement you'll need without losing any of its tailored shape. Why not also have a peek at the fawn version or perhaps the more daring cerulean blue shade?
To keep it beautifully British it's all about blending traditional with modern, therefore complementing this wild design with some heritage fabrics could keep your look spot on trend.
The Angela Jacket is a purple or camel multi-tweed cropped jacket, great for pairing with all manner of dress and trouser combinations.
Its shorter sleeves mean it can easily take you from workwear to eveningwear, all perhaps with merely a change of shoes or jewellery.
