The 70’s retro revival is still here this season, with feminine and sophisticated muted tones and a bold mixture of textures and print. Shades of chocolate brown and mustard yellow stand out against simple clean lines and classic shapes worn by the Belgium beauty Aglae. Outerwear embraces texture and statement that can be found in both the fabulous rose faux fur coat as well as the luxuriously thick boucle boyfriend coat.
We interviewed the amazing plus size model Aglae on the set of the AW15 Look Book photo shoot. Check out her answers below.

Describe your perfect day in London?
My perfect day in London would be waking up with the sun, having a fab breakfast in my garden then going for some yoga. After that, going to the market and getting tons of fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh bread and cheese and fresh meat from the butcher so that I can cook a nice romantic meal for my man while sipping on a nice glass of white wine, listening to some good music.
