Industry insiders share their thoughts.
I’m excited to be working with womenswear brands Être Cécile and Reece Hudson for autumn 14.
Être Cécile (pictured) is developing its line from T-shirts to include denim, embroidery and knitwear. Also, New York-based Reece Hudson is the new kid on the block in the European handbag world. Matches and Liberty picked the label up for spring 14, so it will be exciting to see the brand’s profile develop.
We are enthusiastic about the next Jiggler Lord Berlue collection (pictured) as men’s shirts are having a moment. Paisley, florals and geometric patterns are a focal point, as well as premium quality fabrics and collar details and finishes. Customers are looking for quality shirts with little details that make them special.

I’m excited to be showing Lee 101 (pictured) in the showroom for autumn 14, a brand new to the agency for next season. Lee is also celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2014 so it will be a great year for the brand. We’ll also be launching Museum into the UK. Its collection includes phenomenal men’s outerwear pieces produced in Italy.
We are happy to be working with two womenswear brands new to the UK: Laurence Doligé and Diega, both from Paris. They stood out at the Who’s Next trade show last season. They both push boundaries and produce beautiful, timeless collections. Laurence Doligé (pictured) mixes menswear, glamour and femininity while Diega combines amazing prints and textures.
