Charlotte Ronson said she turned to her British heritage for inspiration for her Fall 2013 collection, but the result wasn't your Downton Abbey "will we, won't we throw tradition to wind and move into the now" Britain. It was a decidedly modern British countryside in '60s, further updated by a lot of leather dyed green and purple. Tartans and tweeds showed up on the same sweatshirt-style sweater; the sweetness afforded by a turtle-neck crop-top paired with a mod mini was tempered by a muted palette; and she got print-y with it, as the Brits are wont to do, with two shocks of green florals and a warm kaleidoscope print. All over leather outfits also made a couple of appearances, notably with a black bomber jacket and a slouchy purple leather. See British heritage as never before (sorry, Lady Mary) after the jump.
