MHL x Houyhnhnm

Margaret Howell recently partnered with Japanese publication Houyhnhnm to showcase the S/S 2012 collection from her off-shoot line MHL. it is a beautiful collection, and i love how it completely slipstreams into the Japenese aesthetic of favouring comfortable, functional clothes made from natural fabrics. via Tomboy Style
