Needle It

Love is in the air but so is Spring!

  • 10 Feb 2016

Every year I look forward to Valentines Day, not because I enjoy seeing the postman struggling up the drive under the weight of all my cards, presents and flowers but because once we have passed Valentines Day the days are definitely longer and its great picking the children up from school when it’s not dark. It gives me an excited feeling that Spring is just round the corner and then Summer is not too far behind!

With that in mind I feel like I need to refresh my wardrobe and inject some new life into it, I still need to be warm (its cold up north) but maybe some brighter, fresher colours, lighter weight knits and more layering.

Luckily for me, our new Spring Summer 2016 collection arrived at Needle HQ this week and it is now live on our website, perfect timing! We’ve also sent it out to our fabulous stockists and the feedback has been great, in fact one of the styles has already sold out at one of our stockists!

Our latest collection brings you spring weight lux staples for your wardrobe. Stylish pieces in cotton, cashmere and linen blends in nudes, coral and blues mixed up with stripes and tactile stitch textures. Comfortable but stylish, we make sure our necklines are flattering, a flash of colour where you weren’t expecting it, with subtle detailing that makes each style just that little bit different and making sure all our yarns feel great to wear. This Spring Summer collection is gorgeous, fresh and very wearable!

I have got my sights set on our new Evie jumper. It is the perfect piece for now, it ticks all the boxes, its 100% cashmere, so still cosy and great for wearing early in the year and it looks great when it’s layered up but can also see you through summer. At the moment I love wearing it layered with a long sleeve tee, blue skinny jeans and Chelsea style ankle boots. It’s a great jumper to feel relaxed in but it is also such a pretty jumper, the pointelle sleeves make it look just that little bit more delicate than your average cashmere jumper and with the cut being slightly boxy and loose, it gives it a gentle swing so the stripes on the lower back pop round to the front sides every now and again. I’m renowned in the Needle office for accessorizing with a scarf, it can add a dash of colour and break an outfit up, but with the Evie I want to show off the neck line. It is a simple round neck but with the contrasting coloured sleeves that continue up to the neck trim, it makes a statement on its own and should definitely be left scarf free!!

Please check out the new collection on our website, I’d love to hear your feedback.
