Mood board: A laid-back vibe permeated this collection. With a ska love song playing through the speakers, models strolled past, hands tucked into the pockets of loosely tailored linen suits, high-waisted trousers and voluminous skirts. 

Best in show: A translucent hooded parka – a nod to rainy English summers? – added a street-wise edge to an otherwise classic and crisp summer collection. 

Finishing touches: Polka dot scarves tied nonchalantly around necks toned down Howell’s usually structured style.
