I'm partial to a bit of tweed, and I'm excited by LK Bennett's new tweed pieces for this season!
The design team at LK Bennett have worked in collaboration with the weavers at Linton tweed utilising their 100-year old archive as a source of inspiration. Established in 1912 and based in Carlisle, Linton Tweeds are world-renowned for their luxury textured woven fabrics made using specialist weaving techniques. Unique luxury yarns sourced from all over the world are blended to produce exceptional fabrics woven at the mill in England; and their designers have selected those of the highest quality, which are dyed in bespoke colours tailored to their collections.
My two favourite pieces are the Vetti coat and the Wren dress. Crafted from blue flecked tweed and boasting a princess collar, the Vetti coat has an artfully fringed hem, pockets and sleeves and covered buttons. Versatile and chic, the coat can be worn over a dress and also with cigarette pants and a crisp white shirt for a truly modern look.
The Wren dress is a modern update on the classic mini. With a raw edged hem and a flattering cut, this is a piece that can take you from season to season. Expect to see many female MPs donning pieces from this chic collection!
