The February collection
Unveiled in full tonight, the February collection is inspired by the work and personal style of Henry Moore – exploring sculpture and silhouette, material and process, strengthening proportions and hard-wearing fabrics. The artist’s influence is articulated through form, texture and crafted detail, as well as vivid prints referencing his designs from the archive at the Henry Moore Foundation.
The show also introduced leather brogues with an asymmetric closure for men: playing on Moore’s abstract sculpture.
