A night at Annabel's; explorers, pioneers, cashmeres & velvets. Tricouni AW16

My regular readers out there know that my passions are food, homewares and travel.  But just occasionally the perfect opportunity comes up about a brand that I feel passionately about and really fascinated in and my interests can turn momentarily to fashion. 

Tricouni covers just that, being a brand that focuses on exploration and discovery and one that has just created its third collection of timeless pieces out of the most gorgeous fabrics. 

Whilst I am really a Foodie, I am also a traveller and when I was invited to the preview of Tricouni a brand based around travel, exploring and adventure it was a collection I was fascinated to see. 

The brand is steeped in history and originated in kitting out pioneers and explorers. Their first womenswear collection launched in September 2014, focused on durable, water resistant yet luxurious fabrics and was an extremely elegant and very wearable collection of timeless outerwear. 

 Structured tailoring is an important element to each piece, nipped waists allow the rich fabrics to flow luxuriously down the body. Gleaming buttons accentuate length and warm berry colours lead the mind to warming fires and rich autumn hues, even though spring is only moments away. 

Everything about the collection is luxurious, from the fabric to the furs lining the collars and sleeves and even to the rich heritage of this collection. Each piece alludes to a different era, where exploration and discovery was at the forefront of society. 

Every item is extremely wearable and even though spring is around the corner this collection had me longing for golden evenings and open fires. 

The launch party was held in Annabel's. No place could be better equipped, not only in the venues own heritage and history but also its decor; the opulent surroundings fitted in perfectly with the collection. Rich velvet seats lined the room with paintings, drawings and prints cascading down the walls. Each adding depth and texture to the room. You also felt very much at home and you can see why this famous club has not only had esteemed guests over the decades but how it welcomes its members with that familiar feeling of home. 

This piece was probably my favourite. The fur lined sleeves allude to the idea of a fur muffler that one would wear to keep hands warm in the depths of winter.  Here it has been expertly reimagined into a piece that would enable a seamless transition between seasons. 

Once table was set for dinner and after the champagne stopped flowing we said our goodbyes to this little underground haven and left the guests to enjoy dinner where the CEO discussed the brands future and of course the speed at which it is growing.  (This is the third collection the brand has presented in 6 months)

You can shop the current collection on their website.
