Autumn Collections

You might think
the New England brand had
cornered the market
and of course it’s still the biggest seller
in global terms
with its glowing fabrics of
sassafras, hickory, maple,
aspen, poplar,

But we also have some powerful labels,
producing compelling colours and lines:
hornbeam, birch,
hazel, acer,

And don’t forget the smaller independents
creating lots of excitement
with their structured silhouettes
of beech and oak,
their floaty boho larch and rowan.

In fact the word for the season is
‘Look Local’.

You’ll be dazzled
by the talent on your doorstep.
