I’m so excited to launch my fashion collaboration with Skin and Threads today! It’s been a year in the making and I can’t believe the collection is finally in-store.
Skin and Threads approached me about working with them last year and I was so excited to come on board. I’ve always loved the brand and would look to them for good quality basics. I already owned a lot of their beautiful cashmere and woollen jumpers so when they approached me I was really keen to do it.
As Skin and Threads pieces are a wardrobe staple for me I wanted to create my ultimate collection of wardrobe essentials. The collection has everything from little cami tops to cashmere cardigans and some great tailored blazers. The whole collection is made up of items I’d use for my weekend wear and mix and match with my going out wardrobe.
I was given an open book when it came to designs I wanted to incorporate in the collection. The design process was a lengthy one. We started off with an initial meeting last year and we went back and forth with sketches. I brought my mood board to them and had complete control over the look and feel of the collection while Skin and Threads sourced all the beautiful materials. It was very collaborative and I was very hands-on with the process.
It’s a bit of a dream come true to design your own collection and especially working with a company like Skin and Threads. They’re renowned for their quality fabrics so I had complete faith in them that the collection would turn out exactly how I wanted it. It’s beautiful quality. Everything is 100 per cent cashmere or silk. It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work but it was worth it because now I have a beautiful collection that I’m really proud of. I can’t wait for my friends (and all of you!) to see it.
My capsule collection is now available at all Skin and Threads boutiques and online at skinandthreads.com.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about the collection. Just leave me a comment below.
