London Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Aquascutum

British brand Aquascutum is known for inventing the first waterproof cloth in 1853 and creating the raincoat to protect the English from the unpredictable weather. Given those facts, it's not surprising the Spring collection was chock full of outerwear. The majority were simple with clean lines, functional yet stylish. Interesting were the necklines, which included spread and motorcycle collars. They came in muted colors like navy blue, khaki, black and grey. A few khaki coats were doused with pops of fuchsia and red, which was refreshing among a sea of neutrals.

A couple dresses with paisley and floral patterns and bright hues were spotted, as well as skirt and blouse combos in solid colors like navy blue and orange. The most interesting piece was a cropped fuchsia pant, which was uncharacteristic of Aquscutum. Then again, you can always expect the unexpected in fashion.
