The hands of the fashion calendar clock are a-turning; we sit in the sweltering heat of late July, yet our minds already wander ahead to the blustery chill of autumn…

A desolately beautiful expanse of shingle becomes the perfect backdrop for AW14’s gothic turn; Sophie Ka’s Victoriana gown – all frilled necklines and long sleeves – is swept into 2014 with Rokit’s masculine flats and pulled-up socks, while the ruched detailing and wide lapel of Vivienne 
Westwood
’s Anglomania
 overcoat offers the windswept romanticism of an Austen-esque heroine.

Embrace the greyscale washes of northern skies this winter and be swept away by the textural layering and intricate detailing of the season; who needs the the Spanish Riviera when you have the chic, understated beauty of the English coast.
