Almost totally distracted by the champagne, we were ushered into watch the presentation which was about to start. Unlike some static shows I've seen this season, the presentation was held in a small room that essentially created a mini catwalk and was just away for Aquascutum to show the collection more times to smaller groups of people. It was fabulously intimate and we got a real sense of the clothes. The collection was very very safari inspired. With the collection being a host of khaki, beige, gold and forest green tones.
There were fabulous macs that had safari pockets, toggles and pulleys to create ruching effects and ruffles that were asymmetrically attached round the collar or down the side.
When collars weren't ruffles, structure played a huge part to the collage, with waist snug jackets and grandad collars.
The prints had an almost vintage 'liberty' feel to them as they had a cross between safari and rocco element to the style. With a cute brocade jacket being a personal highlight of mine.
Trousers weren't overwhelmingly on show as for Aquascutum S/S 2010 is the season of the maxi skirt! Long live the maxi! The models swept the floor in full length skirts and dresses that were slightly a-line in cut but not overwhelmingly full.
This is definitely the most stylish safari look!
We managed to grab a glass of champagne on the way out - which is by far the best I've had this week! Quality throughout!
