Margaret Howell



The relaxed and classic sophisticated Spring/Summer looks from the England based Margaret Howell's collection are very lovely and the color combos and styling are spot on. The designer states on her about page that she designs "...clothes that are meant to be worn in the real world, where good design is about living with thoughtful style." I love that! 

I also enjoy how Brits use the word 'trousers' instead of pants, what word(s) do you wish we used more in the states?

We prefer the word trousers in Australia too - pants, after all, are what you wear underneath the trousers! We wear our thongs in a completely different place to where you wear yours too! ;)

I like trousers, laundrette, pram or buggy, sweets or a sweet instead of candy, rubbish for trash, waistcoat for vest...many more.

Not so keen on asking for the toilet or calling a pacifier a dummy. Also, they call the top of a bottle the teat and are horrified that we call it a nipple. And I think it's funny when an old man says, "it's chilly, need to get me jumper on!" (sweater)

Okay, I'll stop...I just miss London!

I totally think we Americans should incorporate "trouser" and "jumper" into our vernacular. I wish more men said "lovely" over here, too.

Just gorgeous! What a beautiful collection of clothing ... I'm off to have a little browse.

As Kim mentioned, we refer to 'trousers' in Australia too ... it's a little more elegant I think.

I love the word "knickers"! Cool collection.

lol, funny, reminded my of a night out in Lodon with my friend Gaz. Someone did something and he exlaimed, "That's pants!". I had no idea what it meant but it cracked me up. I also learned not to call the ever present 80s/90s bags a "fanny pack". That caused all types of ruckus and laughter.
