Yours truly missed the E.Tautz show when they made their catwalk debut at last September’s London Fashion Week so it was a real treat to see the collection up close and personal.

This is no fine cashmeres and silks Italian-style luxury brand, but rather a collection of heirloom pieces with a rugged, vintage feel. The handknit patched sweaters with foxes and castle emblems are pure Andr√© Benjamin and we’re big fans of the bow ties, which from afar look like Japanese Shibori prints. The jackets are cut for a full chest and taper in at the waist, which is quite an unusual cut given the recent fashion for ultra-slim fits but the retro look feels like a breath of fresh air.

Patrick Grant, who headed the revival of parent company Norton & Sons, was there looking stylish as ever. Not a time you want your camera to be out of battery! Jump through for more images of the collection.
