Joanna Sykes' laid back collection for Aquascutum had a luxurious and liquid palette and had a nice fresh point of view on sportswear. There was a play with neutrals and white and the punch of yellow was nicely deliberate. The designer played with textures and innovative fabrics. The stiff wraparound skirt in laminated tweed missed the mark though. What worked well are contrasts that worked beautifully such as a sheer chiffon T-shirt worn with mannish pants or a shiny tank under a white silk trench jacket. Aquascutum was a nice fresh and light luxury for London's Fashion Week.
