New Autumn / Winter 2018 Collection now in store
Aspinal of London draws inspiration from the most majestic and noble animal, the lion, an enduring and powerful symbol of strength that has protected Great Britain and its homes for centuries. From the four great lions guarding London in Trafalgar Square, designed and sculpted by the famous 19th Century artist Edwin Henry Landseer, to the lions that grace the Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace and countless other splendid examples around the country, the lion is the most familiar animal statue throughout Britain.
A lion’s head clasping a brass ring is the time-honoured, traditional door knocker protecting both the great houses and not so grand homes of Britain, including that of the most famous door at 10 Downing Street. Entering through an imposing and mysterious door with its majestic lion’s head knocker, we find ourselves within a traditional country house, which looks out over a wondrous and enchanting scene. Beautify peacocks strut amid the topiary and some lion statues in formal English gardens, with their pleasing symmetry and harmonious structure, inspiring our seasonal palette of rich and vibrant colours and modern take on classical design.
Scarlet, amethyst, amber, mustard, turquoise and topaz are set off against ivory, tan, claret and chocolate brown, combining to form a harmonious mix of bright and classic hues. Jewel colours are rich and opulent, reminiscent of the designs and signature colours of William Morris and the beauty and exoticism of Pre-Raphaelite portraiture.
The scene is set to discover a dazzling and powerful selection of new styles…

MINI LION TRUNK CLUTCH AND LION TRINKET BOX
