According to poet John Keats, autumn is the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. We prefer to think of it as the season of knits and mellow woolliness.
Designer Autumn Kent — raised in the cool climes of Aspen, Colorado, and fashion schooled in Los Angeles and Paris — surely agrees. Her debut collection of statement knits includes elegant, Victorian-inspired wool and cashmere pieces with flattering princess seaming, oversize collars and subtle leather trim.
Wrap yourself in a voluminous-neck sweater or opt for a tunic with matching elbow gloves. All styles come in black, silver or gold, and are artfully blended with shimmering Lurex.
Throw one on: they’re poetry in motion.
Available at Wolf & Badger, 46 Ledbury Road, W11 2AB (020 7229 5698 or wolfandbadger.com), £550-£975.
