Autumn has its downsides (shorter days, no more summer holidays and the end of barbeque season) - but it does have a rather fabulous upside: the opportunity to finally get stuck into the new season's trends. So we're rather thrilled to give you an exclusive preview of the autumn/winter 2011/12 collection from brand new label Tegan.
Tegan is all about effortless luxury and fluid silhouettes with a true vintage twist. We're lucky enough to be able to give you an exclusive sneak peek at the autumn/winter line ahead of Tegan's official online launch on 14 September.
The debut collection nods to French and Italian movies stars of the 50s and 60s - think smoldering Sophia Loren and sultry Bridget Bardot.
We adore the cute print blouses and the super sleek jersey dresses, which are just the job for transseasonal autumn dressing. The design team who developed the collection have trawled through flea markets around Europe and the US looking at vintage clothing, prints and custom made fabrics, and it's this attention to design and cut that ensures a truly luxe mood.
