For day, there is the ultimate white poplin shirt, exquisitely tailored cigarette pants and sensually soft, merino wool knits.

Plus an androgyny-inspired, Crombie-style coat with a lace panel, that is a to-have-and-to-hold-forever piece if ever there was one.

Eveningwear includes a matt black, duchess satin skirt while the jewel in the crown of the collection is a midnight blue, chiffon dress that is guaranteed to have you feeling supremely feminine.

The joy is that these are sartorial staples in luxury fabrics.

Style them as you wish with anything from a studded sturdy boot and dishevelled hair to a vertiginous heel and diamond earrings, these are the foundations of style.

Timeless elegance may be understated but this collection proves it can also be show-stopping.
