Here’s something new to explore if you’re a perennially cold-blooded girl but want a change from knitwear. Quilting!
Specifically, this quilted trench ensemble by Gabriela Hearst*, above. (Note: she now has a shop in Brook Street). But also the elevated quilted patchworking at Louis Vuitton (below, great for layering) and this fab Bonny fencing-style jacket from Isabel Marant*.
Emily Adams Bode’s patchwork jackets* are also worth your attention. Patchwork is labour-intensive hence the price, but for more realistically priced quilting, I like these Kantha jackets from Toast. Plus, I’ve just clocked this COS ‘zip up puffer vest’* in the store window. It’s a kind of tabard arrangement that looks to serve as a perfect light insulation layer. Buy it here*.
And if the quilting bug has well and truly enveloped you, there’s more. Jessica Ogden’s upcycled patchwork quilts and cushions for A.P.C are now in their 17th season – I love this red and blue colourway (below). They land on 24th October.
Meanwhile, Parisian polymath and vintage whisperer Gauthier Borserello (more on him to come) has started yet another venture. His Lenaik patchwork quilts are made from second hand fabric upcycled from French and Italian shirt factories. See more here…
