Margaret Howell


Established in the 1970s, the foundation of Margaret Howell’s label has been well-made menswear-inspired pieces for women. The simple separates in her collection for S/S 10 were no departure. Perfectly tailored button-up shirts in solids and checks and boyfriend trousers were appealing, while trench coats — one formed into a dress — were a highlight. This season, Howell combined boy shorts and bandeaus in signature checks and stripes with her classic looks, with an unexpected bare leg or midriff providing an edge. Hemlines dropped below the knee, creating a silhouette in keeping with her no-nonsense aesthetic.
