Nothing signals the start of Autumn more than the return of knitwear to our wardrobes in all its guises. The chunky, oversized knit has been a favourite of mine for as long as I can remember. Worn with jeans and biker boots, I tend to choose the more neutral shades, but this season I’m also opting for the bright red ribbed merino knits from Jigsaw. The Brora fairisle cardigan remains a staple classic, whilst the ME+EM knitted vests are perfect for layering over a plain white shirt. However you wear yours, we all treasure our favourite pieces of cashmere as the seasons turn, here’s my edit of the best British designers to keep you warm this winter.
