Margaret Howell has always be press shy so it came as no surprise when she didn't come out to take a bow after presenting her menswear collection this morning. Far from being over-exposed like many brands sadly are today, like her clothes Howell is refreshingly subdued and let's them doing the talking.
Today's men's collection was typically Howell. Rather than attempting to reinvent the wheel she delivered an assortment of pragmatic looks that were as appealing for the men in the audience as they were for the women. Fabrics were uber lightweight and therefore perfect for the warmer months and the rolled up sleeves on shirts, simple ribbed knits and midnight blue city shorts encapsulated the brand's no fuss mantra perfectly.
