For this seasons collection we looked into exploration, an activity most commonly conducted in tweed. Before synthetic fibres, woven wool was the fabric of choice for adventuring to colder climes. History is now turning full circle and due to continued developments with wool, Arctic explorers invariably choose a fine Merino layer close to their skin. Polar expeditions and the history of changing technologies used by explorers’ sets the scene for this season’s collection. The poles are places of extreme, with natural patterns forming a graphic landscape. Fissures through blue ice staccato across the tundra; reflected in arctic ice blue yarns throughout the British wool and Merino cloth collections. Each fabric is named after the high points of Britain from Ben Gorm to Ben Mhor.
