Aspinal of London invites you to a celebration of the golden age of theatre, proudly unveiling our collection for Autumn Winter 17. We have explored the Aspinal classics, while seeking new inspiration from perhaps the most elegant eras of our London West End theatrical history.
The red carpets are rolled out awaiting the arrival of stylish ladies and gentlemen in glamourous evening dress, whist the orchestra tunes up in the pit, and the beautiful deep red velvet curtain rises to reveal a spectacular stage.
Aspinal’s choice of fabrics are harmoniously plush, sumptuous and dramatic this season, with a colour palette for Autumn Winter featuring rich berry and scarlet red, navy, gold, blusher, grape, peacock, chanterelle, redwood and tan through to black and ivory. We return to a period of Britain’s incredible talent, dazzling performances, uplifting operetta and of course, the sparkling wit of Oscar Wilde. Mingled with top hats, smoking jackets and fluttering feather fans, Aspinal dresses up and adds personality to classic pieces with snake and leopard prints, patent, Aspinal’s signature deep shine croc and embossed flower textures. Also influenced by this bygone age of theatrical glamour and plush luxury, the distinct velvet of vintage theatre seats are a strong influence, with Aspinal’s favourite bags popping up in opulent reds and chic blacks.
