Knitwear has always been an autumn/winter staple. Cashmere, crochet and mohair are transitional, whereas angora, thick-knits and wool keep us cosy in the bitterly cold months. Jumpers and cardigans are made for luxurious layering over (or under) an array of different textures, right on trend with the new layered looks. What’s more is that AW12 collections are offering an exciting variety of different colours – meaning that however dull the weather is, our wardrobes will be exploding with luscious purples, vibrant neons, burnt oranges and futuristic metallics.
This season’s knitwear will tick all the right boxes. We’ve recently had deliveries in from Acne, Athe by Vanessa Bruno to add to our comprehensive knitwear collection, which already includes beautiful pieces from Alexander McQueen, See by Chloe and Helmut Lang.
Acne has wowed us with their super-cool highlighter yellow knits. Take your pick from the angora button down, the angora pullover or the knitted wool jumper. We’d like all of them, please.
It’s worth noting that they also splashed out rich purples and royal blues.
Athe by Vanessa Bruno has brought us speckled fun with these eye-catching red or green jumpers.
Alexander McQueen adds to our knitwear repertoire with these sumptuous cream and forest green patchwork polo necks.
If your taste is a little more utilitarian and you prefer a more muted palette, then this grey merino wool and yak-blend Rick Owens open cardis is perfect, as is the See By Chloe roll neck long-line, capped sleeve sweater.
Helmut Lang’s new season pull-overs have been insanely popular so far. They’re simple and laid-back and their alpaca and silk blends feel amazing to the touch. They’re a great way to update your look due to their asymmetric hem and interesting yet subtle textures.
So delve into our collection and find the perfect knit for you.
All Acne and Athe by Vanessa Bruno coming on-line soon. To shop Alexander McQueen, pop into the shop or mail order on 01372 464604.
