"In celebration of its new shop on Jermyn Street, British knitwear brand John Smedleyhas created limited edition knitted bomber jackets (£450) in collaboration with Tara Osborough, an award-winning textile designer who specialises in natural, hand-dyed yarns. The textured orange and navy designs have fine herringbone panels, each of which takes two days to construct. Look out, too, for the Hermann polo shirt (£145) with a trimmer fit and modernised collar."
JOHNSTONS OF ELGIN
"Tara aims to create pieces which are not only functional, but also raise awareness of the natural and sustainable resources which we are lucky enough to have locally. Inspiration for her designs comes from the scenery which surrounds her. This project between QEST and Johnstons of Elgin was therefore a perfect fit for her. The situation of the mill in the North of Scotland, an area of outstanding beauty, proved to be a great influence in the creation of this throw."
