Have you ever had one of those moments when something you’ve been thinking about a lot suddenly fell into place? It’s exactly what happened to me with Highlander! There was a specific motif – a kind of multi-colour diamond – that I’ve been wanting to design something around, but I couldn’t quite grasp exactly where I wanted this idea to go. Maybe a hat? Or a cowl? Something rather neutral, or very bright? Then one day I saw Brianna, one of the Outlander characters, wear a beautiful turtleneck pullover that incorporated the same sort of motif, and I immediately knew that a pullover with a similar feel was what I wanted to translate this idea into. As an homage to the beautiful pullover that served as one of the inspirations during the designing process, we named the design Highlander!
