Foundations AW19-20: Inspired by the comfort of craft, Foundations AW19-20 is designed to show you how we do “cosy” in the rural countryside. With lots of annual rainfall and low temperatures almost year-round, the Lake District requires a wardrobe full of woollens. In this collection, you will find vibrant colourwork, interesting yokes and simple but effective textures. We have worked with a small group of indie designers to create garments and accessories that can be thrown on and wrapped up in whenever you need the ease of a woolly hug.
