Crumpet's Cruise Collection: This Little Girl Loves

British label Crumpet is a favourite over here at This Little Girl Is Lost and after seeing the Cruise 2014 collection, I know the love affair is going to last another season. The cashmere brand specialises in statement knits, with an understated, edgy cool about them. There's also biker jackets and over-sized wrap jackets to look out for this season, in a striking monochrome port/navy check, designed to be slung over their colour block signature crews. 

Giant Leopard prints are popular once again (see the S/S 13 report here) albeit in a new shade of emerald green, alongside zebra print in monochrome and acid yellow. Stripes and a retro-inspired Geo print can be found on tees, crews and matching scarves. I recommend teaming these with leather pleated or midi skirts and mannish, chunky loafers for an update on last winter's popular aesthetic.  

For magpies like me, Crumpet’s black polo necks and ponchos glitter with Swarovski crystals - perfect for evening over a pencil skirt or skinny jeans with ankle boots. Designer Zara Juricic has also combined cashmere and lace for some delicate separates in neutral tones. Classic leopard print scarves make a welcome return. My key piece? The zebra jumper which I'd team with quilted skirts and super skinny jeans.

Brand Bio: Each piece from Crumpet is made in Nepal from pure cashmere in small family run factories where local women are supported in work. All styles are hand finished, hand printed or hand embellished. Most famed for their printed star scarves, the popular print remains to this day across the accessory line.
