Aquascutum London — For Spring/Summer 2006, Aquascutum London is inspired by the luxurious lifestyle and travels aboard the British cruise liner, The Mauritana. The tranquillity of the Greek Islands, the vibrant coast of North Africa and the modern architecture of the New World inspired the colours and fabrics. A neutral base of navy, calico, coffee, gunmetal and white are accented with shades of scarlet, paprika and green.
For formalwear, Aquascutum London offers a silhouette of strong sholders and suppressed waists. jackets have narrower collars and reveres and are teamed with trousers which are either flat fronted or narrow. The heritage of the brand is reflected with pin and chalk stripes in fine wools, accentuated by shirting in vibrant colours. Compact poplins are more fitted this season with higher armholes and smaller collars to give a clean, polished appearance.
