What was the inspiration behind the collection?
For Wilderness Spice, we mainly took our inspiration from the emphasis of heritage tweeds and checks that can be seen all over the catwalk this season.
The collection follows on from Wilderness which saw us experiment with a softer colour palette for Spring/Summer. We have now evolved the concept to make it relevant for A/W, while keeping our original inspiration in mind.
What are main trends for the season that you’ve incorporated into Wilderness Spice?
We have featured a lot of wool checks throughout the collection, particularly on coats, as well as darker floral prints onto dresses and tops. We also have pops of spicy hues featured as block colours as well as within prints.
How do you think this collection compares to competitors?
I would definitely say that our collection is in line with the more aspirational retailers of the High Street. Many fashion leaders recently launched their bulletins on Heritage Tweed, which goes to show that we are bang on trend with this particular collection.
What are the key pieces from the collection?
Check coats, dark floral dresses and the soft tops with floaty sleeve detailing. Also, the spice coloured knitwear that features this season’s must have lace-up and eyelet detailing.
Do you have a personal favourite from Wilderness Spice?
I particularly like some of the statement print tops we have featured in the collection which can easily be paired with skinny indigo denim jeans.
If you could explain the Wilderness Spice collection in five words, what would they be?
I would say rich, heritage, foliage, tweed and… spicy!
