Showcased against the brick red bar of Soho's Union Club, set in a the 270-year-old Georgian town house, Le Kilt's autumn/winter 16 offering was a lesson in back to school nonchalant cool. Leaning against the bar, decked out with bouquets of vibrant flowers, moody models grouped together in varied incarnations of Sam McCoach's iconic kilt. Lengths alternated from mid to mini, while colours ranged from MacLeod yellow, Wallace Red, and Mod Scott monochrome to olive green, navy, white and charcoal. In move towards ready-to-wear, there were leather jackets, knitted vests, blazers, cosy jumpers and short-sleeved silk shirts, while accessories were kept minimal at cute berets, creepers and leather dog collars in what was a contemporary twist on 90s school girl cool.
