For a straighter cut, opt for the Vixen; available in washed black, distressed blue or a raw indigo denim.
With such a choice and such a staple item for your winter wardrobe, you'l find it hard to buy just one pair!

AW11 Trans Collection Inspiration...

Born out of AW main, the transitional collection is full of stripped back pieces, with thought provoking images, a simple and nature inspired colour palette with emotion heavy names.

For women, a trip to Kew Gardens for the designers inspired animal prints of tigers and zebras and autumnal leaves combined with moss greens and dirty cream. Spider webs mixed with crows and paint splatters add to the dark and slightly morbid feel. Tones of witchcraft are seen through the sheer fabrics, asymmetrical and draping shapes, giving a sillhouette that is undefined and ethereal.

Textures and shapes are once again a predominant feature in the collection, with sequins, rouching, foil details and knitwear speckled with silver. Colours are natural; pumice stone pinks, washed out blacks and winter whites. With names like Crazy, Desperate, Pleasure and Tears, it is not for girls who want to blend in.

For the men, it is less angelic and more of a nod towards the archaeic. Images of drunken debauchery and provocative poses of women adorn the t-shirts. Sexual deviance and anarchistic opinions are ever-present with names like Chain Gang, Immortal, Anarchy and Fuck Love. 

Colours are stripped back; echoes of stones, pebbles, muddy waters and rust are all washed out and distressed to look worn and imperfect. Materials are inverted, and brushed to give an interest with texture, layering and drapery giving some dimension to the items.
