For those of you that are into your statement knitwear, add this collaboration to your shopping list for autumn winter 2013 immediately. Bella Freud has collaborated with Barbour, yes the beloved British brand, on a series of wool sweaters for the season ahead. Last Thursday we were given a sneak preview of the collection at Soho House in London. After meeting Bella Freud and enjoying a few beautiful cocktails on a warm summer’s day, we attempted to fast forward in time and picture ourselves stepping out in these stylish jumpers. It wasn’t too difficult to do so, despite the boiling weather awaiting us outside.
The Bella Freud for Barbour sweaters focus in on woodland creatures, floral tidbits and general countryside warmth. Each and every piece of knitwear has a wonderfully cozy yet fabulously stylish element to be discovered. While this will be second nature to the country-fied set, we have a feeling city folk will jump in the queue to purchase just as quickly. We have our eye on the rabbit hoodie!
Look for the Bella Freud for Barbour collection to hit stores from mid-August with prices ranging from £89 to £129.
