When it comes to luxurious fashion, cashmere sweaters are one of my all time favourites. They’re super soft, cosy and just make me feel all sorts of happy. So when I came across Henry Todd London, an English designer brand whose designs feature stunning stripe combinations and graphic patterns as well as floral prints and sporting event motifs. The colours in this Spring Summer 2015 collection are also as impressive: from vibrant blues to pastels, pinks and greens to colourful combinations, and made from Scottish cashmere, silk & cotton blends. There’s something for both guys and gals, from flattering slim fit cuts for both to cropped styles & boxy fits for the ladies too. Read on for my favourite pieces from their new collection, and how I would style them.
Embrace the spirit and excitement of an English summer’s day, taking its inspiration from beautiful landscapes and enchanting pursuits. Strolling through a luscious floral meadow, boating on a cool blue lake and picnicking in the shade of a rich green apple tree all inspire this fun and innovative heritage knitwear collection.
Floral-Print Knitted Sweater
I love a good girly floral print, and this sweater is exactly that. From the white body to the blue, yellow & coral combination or the trio of blue hues, the fit would be just perfect for a lunch date with the girls, a family outing or a shopping trip. White skinny jeans with white pumps and silver jewellery would be ideal for this. Coming soon at £395/€559
Decorative Ensign Sweater
When wearing a loud printed piece, it’s always best to keep the rest of your outfit subtle. This all over graphic printed jumper is inspired by English sporting events and made of a cashmere & wool blend. Light blue or white jeans would be great with this, as well as a matching blue or white shirt underneath for the ultimate preppy look. Coming soon at £450/€636.60
Striped Cashmere Sweater
The light shades of this sweater and its contrasting stripes & ribbed details make for ever-the-interesting sweater, so team it with simple pieces to really let it do all the talking. Black or navy jeans, sunglasses and Cons would be perfect to round up the look. Coming soon at £395/€559
Oversized Short-Sleeve Knit
A cropped cut with a waterfall finish? Yes please! I adore this knitted short-sleeved sweater, as it’s perfect for Irish summers. The ribbed details on the sleeves and hem, the ‘popped’ effect of the knit and the vibrant hues all factor into why this is a definite Killer Fashion favourite. High-waisted shorts, over a flowy dress or with patterned tapered trousers, take your pick because any of these would work without a doubt. Available at £575/€813.50
