The much anticipated fall/winter collection was inspired by Beyoncé's historic performance at the Glastonbury Music Festival last year. The autumn delivery is focused around the 'boho-inspired girl who attends the festival and includes floor length skirts, casual jersey tops paired with denim that is an homage to the alternative rock bands, their music and eclectic sense of style.
