The Elemental Collection mixes the A/W 16 trend “Elemental” with S/S17’s “Edgeland” to create a warm, comforting Collection which embraces the last days of winter, while pushing forward towards Springtime positivity.
We have taken inspiration from our surroundings for the colour palate of the Elemental Collection. Stunning Scottish skies – from countryside to city – burn from warm purple, through teals and pinks every morning and evening creating a striking fade that we have aimed to evoke in our choice of colours this season.
We have harnessed the warmth of pastel tones to evoke a cosy, delicate feel. This Collection aims to create an inner sanctuary – a cocoon against the windswept wilds of the late winter months, whilst reminding the wearer of spring and the optimism of new beginnings.
When Renee Bøgeskov got in touch about a wrap to take her 4 month old hiking in, we were intrigued about the practicalities of a hike in a sling. We asked Renee to share her experience of hiking whilst babywearing …
Even though both my husband and I are experienced in outdoor adventures, planning a trip to the mountains with a 4 month old baby seemed slightly intimidating. We did however feel confident that our baby girl would be happy and content as long as she felt safe, warm and dry. With her used to being wrapped in a sling, as well as the fact that a woven wrap seemed as the best, if not only way, to carry a baby at the same time as a back pack, I contacted Oscha for advice on which wrap to choose. Less than 24 hours later, a base size (s.6) Okinami Sal was delivered to my door step. After fighting off some small hesitations about dragging expensive Boutique tails through dirt and bonfire smoke, I looked forward to putting this wonderful blend of 49% Sea Island cotton, 10% Cashmere, 31% wool and 10% Tussah silk to the test.
