Winter in London normally means finding the cosiest pubs, bars and restaurants in town and then taking up residence until Spring arrives. Not this year, however.
The winter of 2020 is an entirely different beast. With many hospitality venues offering outdoor seating only, Londoners are rapidly finding that they need to bring the cosy themselves.
That’s why we were so excited to discover this gorgeous crafted knitwear look from Connolly’s Winter 2020 Collection. The brand, who are primarily known for their leather goods, have created the perfect look for winter 2020.
Consisting of the Big Skirt and the Circular Fairisle Sweater, the pair are the perfect combination for those chilly winter evenings, whether huddling in a beer garden, or enjoying an alfresco dining experience.
The Big Skirt is as much a work of art as a beautifully crafted piece of knitwear. The chunky knit skirt has been put together in Scotland with a variety of monochromatic mélange cashmere yarns to give the garment a sophisticated multi strand look.
In addition the skirt has been knitted out of gauge to give it a hand knitted look.
Hand knitted in Scotland, the Circular Fairisle Sweater is the perfect jumper for cosy winter nights in London.
Consisting of a blend of merino wool and cashmere, the garment has been designed to keep the wearer warm in the chilliest of places.
The garment has been knitted in the traditional way to maintain a full circular yoke while the pattern around the shoulders has been knitted as one piece so it is seamless.
Style wise, the sweater blends a natural palette of neutral tones with accents of graphic black that punctuates the silhouette with a modern twist on a traditional design.
If you are planning on socialising this winter, then you’ll need to be prepared to brave the elements.
If you decide to bring the cosy yourself, then Connolly’s Big Skirt and Circular Fairisle Sweater are the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe and the ultimate knitted Winter look.
