Collection Inspiration - Nordic Sky

Today sees the launch of our new Nordic Sky collection  - a carefully balanced palette of inky blues and cherry, bone neutrals and sulphur yellow for the AW17 season.

I've always been fascinated by the lifestyle of Norwegians. All that cold, those dark skies and then the endless light. And of course, the appeal of warming drinks and snuggling up under comforting throws during those cold, cold days isn't lost on me either. 

It got me thinking. Thinking about those deep blue tones, the way the sky effortlessly transcends from ink to palest aqua. All the time underpinned by the balance of the neutral moon and a sulphur yellow sun. Just beautiful.

So when it came to designing my collection for AW17 I felt we needed to go deep, moody and a little darker in tone. But more than that, I wanted to introduce new textures, a new softness to introduce lightness too.

What resulted is what has to be my favourite collection so far.

Imagine light as a cloud mohairs, sublimely soft cashmere blends and our traditional herringbone lambswool with tactile fringing and you'll be right on target.
