Recent coverage: Source magazine

Last summer I spoke to new local London magazine 'Source' for their A/W 2014 launch issue about knitwear and the challenges of running a business (challenge being the operative word, given that I was six months pregnant at the time and now have a five month old baby!). The magazine came out at the end of last year and is available to pick up free in local cafes, independent shops and bars around north and east London.

Designers, top to bottom: MSGM, Trussardi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci, Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli, Tods, Sportmax, Etro, Stella Jean, Gucci, MaxMara and Les Copains.

Introducing the Autumn/Winter 2015 collection

If you didn't catch the unveiling of our new collection, Archive, on Instagram on Sunday, now is your chance see it in full. As this is our tenth collection, we decided to celebrate by reprising and reworking some of our most popular and bestselling pieces. The 'Alice' cardigan is the hugely popular cocoon shape we've become known for, the chunky 'Amelia' sweater a winter wardrobe staple and the 'Grace' mohair sweater came about when Vogue commissioned us to make two pieces for a shoot last year (see the resulting editorial here). The palette of rust and grey is simply because those are two of our favourite colours for autumn/winter.

London Fashion Week knitwear round-up, part 2

Following on from yesterday's London Fashion Week knitwear round up, here's our pick of the best from day 4. Pieces by Jonathan Saunders, Mulberry, Christopher Kane and Pringle. I loved the Peter Pilotto offering so much, I couldn't pick just one. See four of their incredibly covetable knits below.
