Standout piece?

Tartan flannel dress

Did it work?

Themed around “The Saville Row Woman”, pieces were highly wearable (if not too so). Sparks of innovation were seen in gleaming metal details; twill weave with silver piping; leather, florals and flowingly feminine dresses in flannel as well as chiffon. Yet the brand did what it said and stayed true to its classic roots, focusing on masculine silhouettes, tailoring and outerwear.

Standout piece?

All the faux fur scarves worn by the models down to the PR on the door

Did it work?

When I think of Charlotte Simone I think of faux fur, colour and London girls: this collection just strengthened her branding and style.

Standout piece?

The crimson ring belted midi and the dress that could have been in Beyoncé’s lemonade video.

Did it work?

I expected minimalism and with a twist: I got it with better backgrounds and it worked.
