Etre A/W 2012/201311/09/2012
Etre's Autumn / Winter 2012/2013 collection draws on the understated but characterful traditions of British workwear. It looks to the best time-tested solutions from the past, pioneering new solutions where history offers no blueprint. The collection thus includes traditional fishermen’s sweaters, knitted to a pattern familiar to generations of fishermen’s wives and customised with motifs originating in the centuries-old fishing communities of Polperro and Staithes, alongside the innovative Etre Touchy and FIVEPOINT gloves, conceived specifically for use with modern touchscreen devices.
Each piece is lovingly crafted in the British Isles, using responsibly sourced, time-honoured British materials. Workwear jackets are fabricated from 100 percent Melton wool, manufactured by a 150-year-old family business in West Yorkshire. Gansey sweaters are knitted from the finest 5-ply worsted wool, spun and dyed in Yorkshire mills that have been turning out the same material for generations. Leather gloves are made by a family business established in 1944, now one of the last surviving British glove manufacturers. Satchels and holdalls, crafted from the same high quality Melton wool as the jackets, are fabricated by a small Cornish leatherwork company.
I just love Etre's new knitwear collection! I think everybody would love to have high quality wool products like these in their closet... Also, I'm always a big fan of everything that's traditional British, so of course I love this collection too.
Tell me what you think.
