CAMILLA AND MARC recently launched the brand’s elegant Autumn/Winter 2022 collection called Liberté that was created as a celebration of progress. The range was partly inspired by creative director Camilla Freeman-Topper’s love of old cars, in particular The Cotton Club Era from 1925 – 1940, she also looked to the glamorous style of 1930’s beach pyjamas.

The collection channels an energy of freedom and experimentation from a time when women were claiming the right to be and dress as they pleased. It was a pioneering time in history which was reflected in the changing fashion of women that championed confidence and self expression.

“The glamour and social progress of the 50’s has always been a remarkably interesting time to me,” says Camilla Freeman-Topper. “The unbridled confidence of the women, the fiercely liberating spirit of ‘we can do anything’. I wanted to create a collection that encapsulated the beauty and glamour of what it means to be a woman today and celebrate the significance of how far we have come; as mothers, daughters, female bosses, creatives, politicians, teachers, social workers – women are phenomenal, we are all these things and more. This collection is an ode to women.”

The collection itself features exaggerated takes on suiting coupled with sheer styles and languid silhouettes that offer a sophisticated modernity. CAMILLA AND MARC looked to 1920’s menswear tailoring for their double breasted suits, vests, overcoats, and longline tailored trousers which are juxtaposed with sensual gowns and soft skirts. The appealing suiting pieces make for elevated workwear that easily transitions into the evening. There’s a sense of opulence created by rich velvet and slinky satin which lends itself to beautiful occasion pieces.

Among the key pieces for the range are a chic blazer and pant set in cream which features wide lapels and honed shoulders, with trousers elongated to create a proportion of height and strength. The brand’s favoured trench coats also make an appearance styled with cosy knits and tailored trousers. Sheer knitwear in a mohair and wool blend offers a delicate touch while bias-cut gowns are truly covetable and timeless.

Referencing the vintage vehicles Camilla Topper Freeman loves, there’s metal hardware and leather details in the range of clothing and accessories in a subtle palette of in black, tan and gunmetal. CAMILLA AND MARC have succeeded in creating a collection that makes the wearer feel liberated while celebrating how far we’ve come.
