BLAKE LDN Autumn Winter 2013

With the summer, or at least the sizzling hot temperatures seemingly over, I'm already preparing myself for the transition into Autumn and amongst the medley of AW 13 collections out there, I'm currently crushing on Blake Ldn above all others. I first blogged about the exclusive London knit label last year (which you can see here) after its launch at London Fashion Week. 

AW 13 was inspired by vintage ski images, adapting to create a modern day take on the traditional chunky ski-knit by looking closely at the yoke, panelling and racing stripes. Textures of angora and cashmere are added, alongside clashing hues of rich gold and bright neon, to a basic palette of deep navy’s and army greens. New for the season are styles of bomber jackets, oversized boyfriend sweaters and chunky ribbed polo necks. 

This season also sees a capsule range of Accessories added. Simple cashmere beanies sit next to fine merino, angora and chevron beanies pattern beanies as well as a long neon stripe scarf.

Bio: having studied at London’s Central St Martins, Alice Ashby has previously worked as Assistant Knitwear designer at Rag & Bone in New York and co-founded luxury knitwear label The North Circular. She launched Blake LDN in September 2012 with an eye on creating a more conscious alternative within the luxury knitwear market.
