A/W 2017: The After Dark Collection

We take a stroll through a moonlit garden seeking inspiration for our newest Collection: After Dark. Bathed in an ethereal glow, the garden takes on a supernatural calm once the sun goes down. With rich, warm colours, a few pops of brilliant brightness and a focus on the natural world, this Collection promises to be gorgeously varied with designs & colours to suit all tastes.

The After Dark Collection

The After Dark Collection will be with us from late October 2017 all the way through to early January 2018. Running through two distinct seasons this Collection takes its cues from autumnal warmth as well as the comforting chill of deep winter. Harnessing warm oranges, rich navy, cool purple and strong greens, the After Dark Collection is wonderfully diverse in its hues while maintaining the essential warmth we all crave at the changing of the seasons.

Using The Plaid: A Traditional Scottish Carry

We’re pleased to be part of a rich heritage of carrying in Scotland and whilst researching the Plaid carry we have been reminded of the importance of passing on the tradition of carrying to our family and friends.

Those few that did know, not only remembered but had carried their children, their grandchildren and even their great-grandchildren in it.
