Begun to spread some cheer and support from small business to small business, the 'Thoughtful Edit' celebrates work that I feel an affinity with and designs that you will love.
1. Pajotten. Simple Chore Jacket in Indigo. £150
Pajotten are a family run label creating small, customer focused collections with an emphasis on workwear and sustainability. I first discovered them through The Assembly Market where their retail display is just as fine tuned and intriguing as their designs. This beautiful brand is the real deal!
2. Sideline. Patti Boilersuit in Green. £212.50
Sideline is a casual wear brand by denim aficionado Ellen Brookes. She has a knack for creating easy, wearable pieces that are oh so special. Her colour palettes and textiles are to die for, and over the past few seasons she has worked hard on environmental impact, introducing treatments including laser technology and water-less ozone washing. I have personally been coveting this green boiler suit for some time, now sold out at Sideline, but available from independent retailer, Academy.
3. Pipet. Umbrella in Yellow. £95
Pipet founder ,Gina, is a colour and pattern queen working with UK manufacturers to create an accessories collection spanning scarves, umbrellas, eye masks and pouches. More recently she has lent her eye to larger scale projects including furnishing fabrics for both commercial and residential interiors. Pipet Umbrellas were to grace the wall of our Cambridge shop, but instead are jostling amongst our accessories online, and making us question 'who doesn't need a yellow umbrella in their life?'
4. M.Hulot. Willow Rucksack in Tan. £365
The Willow Rucksack was born out of the desire for a classic backpack in characterful leather, fully functional but with minimal detailing.
5. Norman Walsh. Tornado Trainer in Green. £115
Loved by flat shoe expert, Hannah from En Brogue, and known for their heritage and brilliant colours, Norman Walsh were another brand on my list for the Cambridge shop. With a history of developing shoe for athletics, their repertoire is diverse; from shoes for fell running through to rugby. The Tornado is reissued from 1983, where it was released for the London marathon, and continues to be made at their very own factory in Bolton.
