embrace the optimism of spring with our new season collection

As the country slowly unlocks we are beginning to embrace the optimism of Spring.  The bluer skies, the soft blossom and the bursts of colour that are beginning to arrive in our gardens.

We have captured this optimism in our new collection.  The fresh sorbet shades of our Liliana block stripe top and Tilly tank, which sit alongside our favourite navy and pale greys of the Cecilia crew and Grace and Mabel bombers, while the bubblegum pink and flame red Sienna and Sam inject a fresh start to your new season wardrobe.

live life in colour

Well, if we ever needed colour in our lives, now is most definitely the time!  The hope of a brighter new year is somewhat on hold as we spend yet more days in Lockdown.   More days at home, working, teaching just simply being can feel monotonous to say the least.  

Why not punctuate your week with bright colours to lift your mood?  And yes, research suggests that colour absolutely does affect our mood and even the way others respond to us.  In 1974 researchers Keith Jacobs and Frank Hustmyer discovered that colour can even change your heart rate, blood pressure and respiration.*  Amazing.

festival style at home

Along with so many other British annual institutions, Glastonbury has sadly been cancelled due to the pandemic.  Unsurprising given the huge numbers of people who make their annual pilgrimage to Worthy Farm in Somerset particularly this year as the Festival celebrates its 50th year.  The idea of sticking to the '1 metre plus rule' in those numbers and when getting lost in the music and the moment is frankly inconceivable.  The BBC are currently deciding on their broadcasting line up to bring golden moments from past years so we can enjoy #GlastoAtHome.

Festival fashion has always been a big thing driven not least by the need of practicality when slipping and sliding through the muddy British fields, sleeping in a tent with limited privacy and washing facilities.  So we have put together a festival bingo card aka your virtual rucksack packing list.

new season knits | style guide

Texture is the name of the game this season.  Juxtaposing chunky knits with slinky silk skirts; luxuriously soft cashmere with heavy duty leather and feminine sparkle with every day denim is all the rage.  Basically, anything goes.  It's almost fair to say, the stronger the textural or pattern contrast the better.

With this very much in mind we have designed jumpers to suit all occasions and styles this season.  From chunky ribbed knits to luxurious cashmere layering pieces, this season's knits form the basic building blocks for endless combinations.
