An Aquascutum Westfield Store Visit!

As part of Harper’s Bazaar’s For One Night Only I was invited into the new Aquascutum store, which has just opened in The Village at Westfield! I’ve been a big fan of Aquascutum for some time now. They are that classic British brand that never goes out of style and their famous club check is known the world over as a symbol of English brilliance when it comes to design! Many know their work with the trench coat and why change when you have a great thing going, right? Well, Aquascutum haven’t changed their classic trench but they have added plenty modern takes on the trench and other goodies to help highlight this wardrobe staple. My personal favourite discovery on the evening was their Made in England trench, which is that same great fit but features lovely leather detailing and a form flattering cut.  Only six were made for women and it took every ounce of willpower I had not to take Westfield’s selection for my own closet! 

The handbags that were showcased in store also came as a pleasant surprise. I am ashamed to say I haven’t given much thought to Aquascutum as an accessories brand. However, after last week I’m changing my tune. The leather is of the finest quality, the shapes are modern and functional and the design is in a realm all its own! There’s definitely a lot more to this classic brand than meets the eye! Here’s a quick look at some of my highlights of the new Aquascutum store at Westfield Shepherd’s Bush…
