“Blink” Retail: Feeling Cape-able

If you buy one thing to update your autumn wardrobe, make it a cape. I’m planning one in to my LFW look. There’s so many great ones to choose from, and something for every budget too, from mega statement capes and those that are just a nod to capeness.

Here’s some of our favourites spotted out and about in London over the past couple of weeks…

Knit: Donegal Divas

We have been researching for this month’s reports and the one category that stands out head and shoulders above the others is knitwear. Designers seem to be channeling all of their creativity into this category, much as they did last Autumn. I’m sorry jersey, but you’re just not cutting the mustard. Its all about chunky, cabled variations on traditional looks created in yarns that are hairy, neppy, tweedy and textural.

Classic Aran knits in creamy colours are all delicious, but we prefer these more coloured variations on the trad theme. Click here for more knitwear coverage. Needles at the ready!
