Autumn is here!
With the temperature dropping and the wind picking up, what better way to stay warm and cosy on those blustery days out and frosty dogs walks than wearing my new luxury faux fur Shrug and ‘East Meets West’ beanie.
‘East Meets West’ is a beanie style hat made from a mixture of Donegal and Abraham Moon tweeds, paired with a Turkish Jacquard braid to add some sparkle into your winter wardrobe. With the addition of a luxury faux fur pom pom these hats are the perfect mix of style, comfort and fairy tales.
As I am half Swedish I took some inspiration from the Sami people of Scandinavia, and their use of braids in their clothing and headware. These beanies are lined with bamboo jersey lining. Bamboo is a brilliant fabric to work with as it’s sustainable to produce, being naturally grown without the use of any harsh chemicals. It is also perfect for year round clothing. Because of it’s structure and breathability, the material keeps you warm in winter and cool in the summer.
There is also a band of super soft micro fleece lining, that sits against your skin. This stops any skin irritation from the wool in the tweed, while offering a very warm and comfortable fit. Each beanie is finished with a single Faux Fur Pom Pom to add to the more traditional ‘beanie’ silhouette.
Luxury Faux Fur Shrugs
This Autumn/ Winter I wanted to create an accessory that hadn’t been seen before. You definitely won’t be finding these in the high street shops. Watching this season of Game Of Thrones I was heavily inspired by the costumes worn in the show, and my creative juices started flowing.
Each Shrug is made from a luxury faux fur and comes in a wide range of colours and styles. No shrugs are the same. Each one has a unique shape and falls differently over your shoulders. Also lined with Bamboo jersey to keep you extra warm on those cold days. Once you put one of these on, you definitely won’t want to take it off!
The Fur Shrugs are fastened at the front with two bands of genuine leather that from a traditional cross over as worn in the show. These are easily worn and come in one size, as they slip over your head adding instant style and warmth to your wardrobe. Both of these products are perfect for everyday wear and make a great statement piece to have. Whether going to a winter wedding, Christmas shopping or walking the dog, be the envy of your friends without putting style over warmth and comfort this winter season.
(I will be adding these products to my Etsy shop very soon! If you would like more information please contact me below.)
