All my celebrity clients wear John Smedley knitwear bar none. It’s smashing stuff with low-key detailing and sophisticated colours. Take the funnel-neck Kilbreck sweater (£295) in wool/alpaca/cotton, or the knitted merino-wool Singular bomber jacket (£220).
Smedley has an interesting sideline this season involving the black sheep whose coarser wool can’t be dyed and so are usually culled from flocks. Smedley has blended natural black wool from a Cornish farm with Falklands merino to make some splendidly individual pieces: the slash-neck Brecon sweater (£385), the Cairn cardigan jacket (£345) and a fashionably oversized scarf (£900).
