July 22, 2009 at 6:19 pm (Casual, London, Luxury, RTW) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Pronounced ak-wuh skyoo-tuhm (1) (2) and Latin for water shield, this luxury label was originally established circa 1851 in England for outerwear that is fondly known today as the trench coat. As a perfect example of their “Understated British Elegance” this simple white blouse with a bishop sleeve & fitted cuff has been tastefully paired with the plaid tab front slim pants for their Fall 2009 collection(3) (4). This is an ideal look for doing lunch with other sophisticates.
