French label Aigle has launched collaborations with two UK brands – a limited edition collection with the Scottish label Harris Tweed and another line designed in cooperation with the British department store Liberty. The fall/winter 2012 Liberty for Aigle line was designed for women and features wellington boots, vests and blouses with a paisley pattern inspired by a 1957 cashmere motif.

Wellington boots are also a fixture of the Aigle x Harris Tweed fall/winter collection, as are 100% tweed down jackets that were designed and created exclusively for Aigle by Harris Tweed. The brand’s tweed fabrics have been produced by the inhabitants of the Scottish Hebridean islands for over 160 years. The men and women’s collections highlight checkered pieces in navy blue and burgundy and consist of only 100 specimens, all of which were spun and woven by hand.
