TERRIFIC TEXTURES

08.11.12

With the winter chill creeping in, it's time to add the final touches of practical style to your look. From chunky scarves and beanies to luxurious leather gloves, our range of textured cold weather accessories has all you need to keep warm and on-trend this season.

The bitter cold months are looming and spring feels like a lifetime away; but don't worry - it's not all doom and gloom. Winter brings plenty of opportunities to update your look with an array of stylish accessories.

Our advice would be to look at the texture and weight of an item as it will indicate just how much it will keep you warm. Read on to take a closer look at some of our winter accessories to see the details of their texture...

Our ribbed knit accessories in indigo are perfect for giving your winter look an effortless style update. Jay is perfect for throwing on at the weekend when you're not worried about styling your hair,  while Busta and Dru are ideal for teaming with a burnt orange jumper and pea coat when you hit the Christmas markets.

Ribbing is a knitting pattern which sees vertical stripes of the stockinette stitch alternate with vertical stripes of the reverse stockinette stitch. This creates the "ribbed" effect that gives a piece of clothing more warmth. You can see in this close-up shot of the Jay beanie that this range of accessories have been woven with both black and indigo threads, creating an eye-catching colourway.

 

 

Opt for Whitechapel in either crimson or blue to instantly brighten up your winter wardrobe. Once you've wrapped up in one of these vibrant pieces of luxury, you actually won't want winter to end.

The renowned cable knit is created when one group of stitches is crossed over another. Although a simple technique, cabling takes a lot of patience and practice. Once you have it nailed, you can create countless interpretations of the knit. The loose version that you can see on our Whitechapel scarf gives the cable knit a contemporary update.

Here's another version of the knit that runs down both sides of the same scarf style. Woven in a tighter knit, this twisted interpretation of the cable knit creates an eye-catching chain effect, which we love.
