London Fall 2008 Fashion Week - Aquascutum

The quintessentially British brand has a long tradition of fine tailoring. They provided the British military with coats during World War I (and you wondered why they were called "trench" coats) and have been supplying the world with stylish rainwear ever since. They still make great coats, but have also expanded to include stylish fashions for both men and women.

These coats have real style, and I especially love the printed coat at center with its jaunty bow, and the black coat with its sweeping circular skirt.

The company's military past shows strongly in the second two coats.

Not all of their coats are fabulous, unfortunately. These look a bit like grade school craft projects made with felt.

I wasn't particularly excited about the non-coat items in the show, but these dresses are quite pretty.
