“Utilitarian” is by now just another look in the lexicon of fashion, but for the 66-year-old Howell, utility is both fact and inspiration. The clothes must be made expertly from the correct cloth—she has been working with the same suppliers of traditional men’s shirting, for example, for 40 years. And they are often reminiscent of a specific period or practice: Soft-hanging jackets that hark back to working-men’s clubs in ’50s London. Her more recent second line, MHL, began with a simple cotton jersey top based on a found ex-army sports shirt. The look is so unostentatious as to be nearly invisible to the untrained eye, yet it all stems, as Howell remarks, “from a very personal point of view.”
