Words

Margaret Howell's knitwear is often the highlight of the collection. While not the most impressive of pieces, the ribbed knit caps offer a nice break from many of the cable options on the market.

Studio Small for Margaret Howell

01

—01. Store Poster.
—02. Margaret Howell Plus - Sam Hecht.

Words

As anyone who has held a catalog, calendar, postcard or leaflet from the brand can attest; Margaret Howell produces not only some of the finest and understated clothes each season, but also an array of exceptionally well designed printed materials. A large part of this is down to the branding, identity and art direction provided by the London based design agency Studio Small, who work with Margaret on everything from the brands website and seasonal look books, to the exhibitions that are shown at many of her stores worldwide.

Margaret Howell 2012 Calendar

01

Info

—01. Sea & Coastline.

Words

There are plenty of nice calendars out there each year, none of which I ever buy. My iCal seems to work pretty well, and but there is still something nice about a well designed date keeper. For 2012 Margaret Howell has put together a selection of artwork by British painters, and produced this piece in association with Emma Mason Gallery.

A couple of weeks back our friend Mark stopped by to check out our new deliveries, so we had him try on a couple of great fall pieces. Going with a range of greys, blacks and blues, the mix of tones and textures look nice together in the latest update of Stock Looks.

MHL Kagool Parka

01

Images

—01. Classic cut and considered details.
—02. Moss coloured, 100% cotton.

Words

The longer fitting parka is something I've always found difficult to wear. I own a couple of examples, most notably a classic A.P.C. model and last season's Storm Parka from Engineered Garments, but traditionally I'm much more comfortable with outerwear that stops around the waist. Having said that, I've always admired the classic lines a longer fitting trench or parka can give an outfit, especially when it comes to layers. The balance between various lengths, when done correctly, can give an outfit a nice sense of depth. The Kagool Parka from Margaret Howell's MHL line looks to me like a sensible wardrobe addition for anyone seeking something longer for the fall. All the details are in the right place, and nothing is fussy or over-designed. As is the case with a lot of MHL pieces, the jacket looks to fit a little on the looser, boxier side; which I happen to think actually works well on this type of garment.

Look: Fall's Coming

Words

It's now the second week of September and although its still pretty warm in Vancouver, I can't help but look forward to some early fall attire. The knitwear from Margaret Howell, oxford shirts, fatigue pants and Red Wings all feel like they are ready for some wear. No matter the season however, olives, blues and suedes seem to be a continuous thread. They always seem to work well together, and especially when a couple more layers are involved.

Margaret Howell's Ten Best Product Designs

01

Images

—01. Alverston Cutlery Set. Robert Welsh, 1962.
—02. Royal Festival Hall.

Words

Well known for both her understated and exceptional taste, Margaret Howell recently picked her top ten product designs for The Observer newspaper. Some you might guess, others you most certainly won't. Her tenth pick, for example, is Motorway Signs:

"These are so familiar that no one notices how clever they really are. They convey important information quickly, unambiguously and without distraction to motorists travelling at speed. This demands expertise in perception and information processing, but the result is anything but academic, combining shape, type and symbol with simplicity and style. They look as good today as they did 50 years ago and have made motorway travelling safer and easier for millions. It is one of the hardest tasks to be simple. And it’s a triumph."
