I love the gender ambiguous nature of 1205's designs. Impeccably tailored and rich in heritage, their slim fit tuxedo blazers could easily be worn by a man or a woman. Nehru collars are the preferences for the men's shirts, while women's blouses forgo them. Tweed features prominently in jackets which also encompass herringbone and heavy scratchy wool.
Print is introduced into the collection via shirts, depicting traditional craft symbols. A deep v woollen dress is given soft leather pockets and panels. A men's mac coat is set to wax cotton. What appeals to me about this collection is how it feminizes masculine clothes and vice versa. I adore how these looks blend traditional, mod, 80's and pilgrim style to create garments which are timeless yet of the moment.
