With London Fashion Week around the corner, we're all getting excited to see what we'll be wearing next autumn and whether we'll still be paying homage to the '70s or unearthing something completely different from the depths of our wardrobes.
We thought we'd go behind-the-scenes with some designers showing at London Fashion Week and get the inside scoop on what their inspirations are this season. While the finished product is what we'll ultimately be wearing (or wishing we were), there's nothing more fascinating than seeing how something that struck the designer's imagination - whether it's Hitchcock's heroines or the Alps - gets transformed into a coveted coat or pair of trousers.
Jaeger is a quintessentially British brand that brings our favourite high-end wardrobe staples to the high street. Known for incorporating historical inspiration with an urban, modern twist, the label never fails to produce a fabulous collection of knitwear and coats that we're fawning over season after season.
For Autumn/Winter 2011, design director Stuart Stockdale tells us that: "Inspiration this season has been found in the depths of Kensington Palace's archive and its fantastic legacy of past royalty and courtiers, including the Duke of Windsor's wardrobe. The exquisite detailing, sartorial elegance and authenticity of these pieces are extracted and made modern. Building on Jaeger's long-standing reputation, the great winter coat is central to the collection."
Jaeger will have its catwalk show on 19th February during London Fashion Week.
