The Vintage Collection: Part I

Vintage Winter

By Millie Chapman

Thanks to the surge of patriotism Great Britain experienced last year with the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics, plus the phenomenal success of Downton Abbey, the romantic nostalgia of England’s green and pleasant land has truly been reflected in the autumn/winter 2012-13 shows of the fashion world. From Marc Jacobs building bespoke steam engines to use as the backdrop to his Louis Vuitton show, Burberry’s focus on classic tweed and wool, and the romantic decadence of Alice Temperley’s gowns, the opulence and elegance of the nostalgic British past was reflected in modern fashion. 

Vintage Winter, makes use of luxurious classic British material including tweed, sheepskin and fur, maintaining a understated silhouette showing that staying warm can still be elegant and fashionable
