Imagine if the creative minds of some of the most classic clothing brands came together and raised a brand on the country coast of England. Are you having a hard time picturing the result? Let me put it right in front of you – Henri Lloyd‘s Autumn Winter Collection for 2010. The layering, tweeds, nautical influences, equestrian backbones…it’s all there. It’s a strong collection for a strong woman whether she’s battling the elements in the British countryside or in the Big Smoke of London.
For those of you familiar with Henri Lloyd, the nautical influence will certainly not come as any surprise. The brand has a strong tie with British Sailing and has done since 1963 when it first began designing clothing with pioneering technologies made for men and women who enjoyed time at sea and a fashionable look to go with it. Their affiliation with the sailing community is as strong today as it ever was. However, ladies who know a thing or two about a classic look have adopted the brand as a daily staple for their wardrobes.
Here’s a look at the lookbook for Henri-Lloyd A/W 2010…what do you think?
