Lady Lucan’s fashion brand launches spring/summer collection

By Anna Solomon

Anne-Sofie Foghsgaard’s fieldsports-inspired aesthetic is back with a bang

Award-winning luxury British fashion brand, Lucan, founded by the Countess of Lucan, Anne-Sofie Foghsgaard, has launched its spring/summer collection.

The new range fuses an appreciation of classic country tailoring with a London edge, delivering a sustainable, modern and fit-for-purpose wardrobe that is quintessentially rural.

The men’s collection features deep-pocketed Tully and Lepanto jackets, wool-linen Fauconberg bombers and Gurkha trousers with stitched leather buckles. Women’s staples include twill urban jodhpurs, a tailored blazer with a strong shoulder, Scottish cashmere knitwear, pure silk tunic shirts and silk chiffon scarves.

The collection artfully achieves sartorial town to country fusion, with a palette to match; shades of sandstone, lovat green and coffee abound, punctuated with splashes of powder blue, fuchsia and orange.

Foghsgaard is the wife of George Bingham, 8th Earl of Lucan and son of the infamous 7th Earl of Lucan, who disappeared in 1974 after being suspected of murdering Sandra Rivett. Since marrying her husband, Foghsgaard has done everything in her power to give the ‘Lady Lucan’ moniker new associations.

Foghsgaard was featured in the 2019 edition of the Luxury Index, where she revealed that she launched her fashion brand after becoming frustrated that ‘tweedy’ shooting gear didn’t allow her to straddle town and country: ‘I wanted to be able to go – literally – from the moor into Annabel’s,’ she said.

The Dane added: ‘I’m very much a Viking.’ And a certain marauding spirit is evident in the gusto with which she throws herself into various ventures, of which Lucan is only one; Foghsgaard runs Fie’s Club, which provides access to exclusive shoots, and is developing a shooting club for the members of Annabel’s.

The pieces from the new Lucan collection are available on the Lucan Fashion website, Harrods, Lucan Fashion in St. John’s Wood, Augustus Brandt and The Rake Online.
