Margaret Howell Fall/Winter 2024 – Paris Fashion Week

Margaret Howell‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection is a masterclass in quiet confidence. The esteemed British label, known for its timeless staples and understated elegance, has introduced a few subtle tweaks for the season while staying true to its core DNA.


One surprising detail is the appearance of a monogram – a tiny “MH” discreetly stitched onto a pocket in Howell’s own handwriting. This personal touch, a departure from the brand’s aversion to overt branding, is a charming tribute to a similar detail discovered in the archives. “It is odd when you’re consciously writing,” Howell remarked during a Paris appointment, “something always goes awry.”

The collection itself is a celebration of well-loved pieces with a touch of fresh perspective. Trousers take on a slouchier silhouette, pooling gracefully at the ankle. Waists are slightly more defined, with waxed-cotton raincoats cinched by belts for a touch of polish.

Fans of Margaret Howell will find a familiar comfort in the lineup. Standouts include a luxurious, surprisingly lightweight reversible shearling waistcoat, a cropped bomber jacket in classic British wool, and a pair of corduroy shorts adapted from the archives with a chic French culotte flair. A chunky cotton-cashmere scarf adds a cozy element, while a peaked-lapel blazer in black barathea offers timeless tailoring.

But the real star of the show might be the unassuming blue-gray shirt, subtly signed with Howell’s initials. This relaxed button-up, with its “IYKYK” (If You Know You Know) flair, perfectly embodies the collection’s essence – a quiet confidence in timeless style with just a hint of personal history.
