Inspired by Londons Hampstead, the heath’s ancient woodland in stark splendour and earthy tones.
Shade of brown. Chestnut, maple and sycamore. Dresses and tailoring in orange, red and green, hint at foliage that lingers: fallen leaves, berries and moss covered tree trunks. The final flowers of the season – hellebore and winter roses – thrive in romantic floral prints.
Embracing heritage checks - Prince of Wales, houndstooth, tartan and tweed can be seen in jackets, shirts and culottes

After a hugely successful trip to Las Vegas for the brands second year, unsurprisingly nearly all of the designer's jewellery on show was sold.
If that doesn't speak volumes regarding Nadine Aysoy’s impressive and contemporary collection, then what can.
Nadine Aysoy launched the brand in 2017, but with a family history of diamond dealers in Antwerp, jewellery is in her blood, and with the families long-established connections, Nadine is able to access the finest quality gems.
The Celeste collection has unveiled six new additions to its Celeste range with summer approaching. Inspired by art sculptures and ancient Chinese tradition, using smooth discs of White Jade signifying harmony, courage and unconditional love; the stone is also said to have powerful healing energies to overcome challenges in life and calm a troubled mind. One reason for sure I have a piece with me at all times!
The collection focuses on Sapphire as a key precious stone, symbolising good fortune, celestial hope, power and kindness. Good will and awareness are definitely a reason for choosing the brand to practice a positive lifestyle. Along with other precious stones such a diamonds all set in 18ct gold, we have luxury all packaged together for the contemporary modern woman (and man) of all ages.
With an awareness of sustainability, Nadine works along the production chain to ensure fair trade and conditions for workers in what can be a difficult industry.
