Special Feature: Our Summer Luxury Featherlight Cashmere Collection
Why have I included a cashmere offering within our summer collection? Well, the answer is simply because for me cashmere is the ultimate luxury in knitwear and is totally non seasonal - I wear as much cashmere in the Summer as in Winter. The only thing that is different is the weight of the cashmere.
I am a huge fan of cotton however, I find cotton sweaters bulky and often heavy to wear in summer. They don’t feel special, they don’t make me feel instantly any warmer, they are not cosy and in addition they don’t create the same flattering drape as that of cashmere.
Our summer luxury cashmere collection is so lightweight you barely know you have it on and they fit perfectly into the corner of any handbag and for those travelling with only hand luggage they take up zero space. (Each of our featherlight collection weighs less than 180 grams!!!!)
They fall beautifully, they look so sporty and smart and they do what cashmere does best - makes you feel cosy instantly.
The Tabard is great layered over our shadow striped long sleeve T shirts and the Button Neck sweaters , I wear by itself. I intentionally made them loose fit, so they would fall over the skin, not cling.
For those who holiday in the UK, they are a must and for those who holiday abroad, how many times have we found ourselves on the beach early evening reaching for a wrap or another layer?
Team them up with the linen pants, shorts or a pair of jeans - you will not look back!!
All the pieces are so lightweight they perfectly into the corner of any handbag and for those travelling with only hand luggage they take up zero space.
I have so much faith that you will love our featherlight luxury cashmere pieces that if you choose to return, you receive a 15% Promo code off your next shop...
Book of the Week
The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad
Many of you may have already read this book but for those who haven’t it is a beautiful read.
In 2002, journalist Asne Seierstad spent four months living with the bookseller Sultan Khan and his family in Kabul. Their voices come to life on the page as Seierstad carefully observes their daily routines and how they resist intimidation, aggression and arrest in their determination to supply the city with books.

The man is a musical genius in my mind. Not a bad song on the album.

Restaurant of the Week
Leon is a growing chain of fast food restaurants but not fast food as we know it. Great choice for those on the move. Really interesting menu, delicious and the menu inspired by flavours, variety and natural healthiness of Mediterranean cooking.
"We opened Leon because we wanted to prove that it was possible to serve food that both tastes good and does you good. We want to make it easy for people to eat well on the high street. We want to do this in every major city in the world"
