“A celebration of artistic and intellectual spirit, with a nod and a wink to Alan Bennett and David Hockney. Easy, relaxed tailoring sits alongside lightweight pieces in linen and slouchy cashmere, while accessories add bright pops of colour among the painterly tones. Weatherproof cagoules and sou’westers take the whole collection outdoors and into the British summer.” - Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative Officer.
