Today’s runway collection is the fall 2006 show from Aquascutum. I have had no real exposure to them before, so this was all new to me.
The collection started out black and white, but it wasn’t at all oppressive like some of the others. Many of the pieces felt very light and airy. I like the pleats and movement in this dress. It’s cute and looks comfortable for a semi-dressy dress.
The coats in this collection were really interesting. They were very different. I love how this coat is just different from any other I think I’ve ever seen. I’m not sure about it’s practicality, but it’s interesting to look at would definately ensure that you are remembered! Many of the coats had something unique like this one. They were just about my favourite parts of the collection.
I am not entirely sure what’s going on here, but I like this look. I think it’s a trench coat inspired waist cincher (probably without any real cinching) over a blouse. It’s very unique. I have honestly never seen anything like it. And I think it looks cool! I would totally wear this!
The end of this collection was spring colours with flower patterns on skirts and coats. Overall I liked this collection. There were pieces that I wouldn’t wear (most of the pastel stuff), but there were a lot of pieces that I would wear. The best thing about this collection, though, was that it was actually *designed*. Nothing looked generic. There were creative touches and things that I’ve never seen anywhere else, like the trench cincher. I liked the creative force of the show. It really felt like something different, which is all too rare!
