Preen in green

There's a reason why looking out onto verdant pastures or dense forests seems so intrinsically satisfying. The human eye is trichomatic, meaning we perceive three primary colours - red, green, and blue - and green just happens to exist slap bang in the middle of the colour spectrum with a wavelength of 550 nanometres, where our visual perception is at its best.

It's a widely used colour in fashion too, although it's often the olive tones that get all the limelight because of just how versatile they are. However, at Favourbrook this season we decided to explore the rich verdant hues because they boast such amazing vitality. They're bold for sure, but have a soft exuberance that the likes of red, orange and yellow can never achieve.

The spectrum of green is wonderfully versatile too, being dark and seductive at one end, while vibrant and light at the other. For autumn/winter, we've focused on the former, bringing out the deep subtle nuances of forest green tones to perfectly complement a winter wardrobe.

On one end of the green spectrum is our fabulously deep green Trafalgar jacket cut in a beautiful silk velvet with an amazing textural finish akin to scales. It's a simple yet extremely elegant collarless jacket that can be worn in a multitude of ways, from jet black cigarette pants to our green Selena circle dress.

The Waterloo jacket resides at the other end of the green wavelength, being a light and glossy olive hue that boasts ever changing nuances as it interacts with the light - you can thank the rich silk velvet fabric. It's finished with delicate embroidery details for a decidedly feminine finish.

The Long Swing coat, one of our perennial favourites, comes in the plushesh of green tones, made all the more extravagant by the contrast floral embroidery. It's a slim-line coat featuring a grown-on collar, creating a sleek neckline and flattering silhouette. Contrast silk piping and matching silk velvet button detailing makes this coat a truly stand-out piece for this season.
