The first drop of Vivienne Westwood Anglomania AW13 has arrived in store and it’s getting us all very excited for what’s yet to come.
The Anglomania Autumn/Winter 2013/14 Collection is inspired by London – The city where it all began. Drawing inspiration from the citys great landmarks both past and present, as well as archive prints from Vivienne’s collections dating from her Punk roots to present day. The stand-out piece for us in this small selection of Autumn/Winter 13’s offering is the beautifully sculpted Halton Dress, in possibly the most attention demanding Anglomania print to date. Featuring swans, florals, dragons and more, all set on a vibrant tartan backdrop, the Sea Monster print is as wild and eccentric as it gets and there are still more pieces showcasing the Sea Monster print to come.
Another print that is very prominent in the collection is the London Bridge image - a homage to the city that gave life to Anglomania. In this first drop, the magnificent Profile Coat showcases this unique print in a grey, purple and black colourway.
For those Westwood fans with a more parred down taste, but a love for Vivienne’s draping and unusual shapes, look to the super soft jersey pieces such as the berry hued Shaman Dress and Twisted Puutsi top, and the structural Consort Skirt.
We already love the look of Anglomania AW13, and we cannot wait to see what else the collection has in store for us.
All the pieces mentioned above are in store now and will be online soon. The rest of the collection will be arriving shortly...
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania is a brand that is very close to our hearts here at Triads, and we know that you share that love for the Queen of British style too. For that reason, as well as the many requests from all of you, SS13 sees the introduction of the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Eyewear collection into our portfolio and not a moment too soon!
Selecting only the very best from the collection, we whittled it down to 7 styles. We all love an oversized frame in the Summer and there are plenty on offer from this collection.
The classic square shaped frame comes in a chic midnight blue shade and features Orb crest detailing on the arms. For a nod to vintage styles, look to the rounder style. This style comes in 3 colourways – Frosted pink and two tortoiseshell designs with sweet pastel shades running through them.
For a more unusual design, the chunky frosted frame is a real head turner and will transform the most basic of Summer outfits into a statement look.

We don’t know about you, but when we don a fresh pair of Converse, we just can’t wait to get them a bit roughed up! In fact, they’re probably one of the only shoes in the world that look better as the years go by, and we would quite happily do without those first few weeks of fresh-from-the-box white.
With this in mind, the new “Well Worn” collection from Converse gives your new favourite sneakers a head start. In keeping with their “Shoes Keep It Clean, Sneakers Get Dirty” motto, the newly launched collection features the iconic Chuck Taylor in a soft washed canvas with stained toe caps and distressed soles to create that perfect love-worn look straight from the box – Genius, we know.
Available in a variety of new colourways for the new season including a sweet butterscotch yellow and a wear-with-everything turtledove shade, that we love so much, we’re offering it up in both the hi- and lo-top styles.

Originally a womenswear brand, Ally Capellino has come a long way since its launch in 1980. The Accessories line first came into its own at the turn of the millennium and was so successful that since then, other lines have been cut and Ally Capellino is now a specific luxury accessories label. With collaborations with the Tate Modern and Apple under their belts, you can see why this is a brand with a high reputation for quality and timeless appeal, and why we are so excited to add it to our Ladieswear portfolio for SS13.
For laid-back, weekend styling, look no further than the Polly Jean. In supple, super soft leather, the slouchy cross-body bag from the ‘Zippy’ collection contains two zip compartments – One main, large space and one smaller, slim pocket at the front. She comes in navy blue with contrasting handles and also in a light woody brown shade, making it so easy to wear, you’ll never want pretty Polly Jean to leave your side.
If an investment piece for everyday use is what you’re looking for, look no further than the ’Conservative’ Collection – It was so hard to decide on one style that we just had to bring you two – Marjorie and Lesley.
Marjorie is a great day bag, perfect for work, with just enough room for all your essentials but not so much that things will get lost. The magnetic flap closure is genius if you ask us, and definitely adds something special to the already stunning Italian leather bag.
Lesley is a classic shopper style, with a somewhat raw quality to it, constructed from thick, unlined Italian leather and finished with industrial brass fittings. With both bags from this collection coming in two colourways, you’re spoilt for choice. We’re championing the vibrant sea blue hue, but the classic chocolate brown colourway is just as delicious!
We’ve fallen in love with every one of our Ally Capellino pieces this season and we’re pretty sure you will too... Now, how can we justify taking home one of each?!
