Aspinal of London reveals Autumn/Winter 2014 collection

This season, Aspinal of London embarks on an adventure to explore a fantasy fairy-tale forest, with themes drawn from childhood stories of snow queens and frozen landscapes. Inspired by C.S. Lewis’ tales of Narnia and traditional Cossack folktales, the season explores themes of nature.

Also new for this season is the Shadow Family, a collection inspired by the brand’s signature English refinement and rugged practicality showcasing the best of its British heritage.

The colour palette is grounded in ivory and black, featuring a folk inspired geometric patterned fur, brought to life with a luxe neutral moss green and rich bursts of berry red. Textural depth is expressed in contrasting pebbled, smooth and nubuck leathers and suedes.

Luxurious highlights include shaved hair calf and the softest rabbit fur, frosted hardware and mother of pearl details. Highlights of the collection include the animal inspired Mouse and Owl Letterbox Rucksacks, along with the geometric fur Marylebone Mini.

Texture is as important as colour this season, with embossed croc suede and matt nubuck python in warm grey and black. The season is tactile, sensual and rich. New families for Autumn/Winter include the Buckle Family, the Mini Trunk Family and the Padlock Clutch Family.

The collection will arrive in stores on 1 September 2014. Aspinal of London boutique is located in The Galleria Mall, Abu Dhabi and The Avenues Shopping Mall, Kuwait.
