Margaret Howell


Margaret Howell started making men shirts and due to their great sucess, she opened her own shop in London in 1977. During the 80s she developed a women line that became very popular within the Japanese market. Her philosophy still remains the same since then: quality is the priority, that is why she uses rich fabrics such as tweed or poplin. Her designs are characterized by timeless, classic tailored cuts giving her garments an investment status.

I visited her store in tokyo and the home goods were equally beautiful, though quite expensive.

i took a picture of the window here with a beautiful stack of blankets on a chair: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pud_pud/3023265807/in/set-72157608543275409/

I like how they remind me of business style done casual. There are clear signs of the original men's brand!

I just took a look at the autumn/winter collection on her website, and seriously, I would wear almost every single piece! One thing I really like about her clothes is the perfect balance between femininity & masculinity ♥

I love the fact that her clothing is so simple and not trendy. If I ever have a paycheck to afford it with, I'd happily buy some of her clothes..
