Knitwear, but not as you know it. Our lightweight women’s knits can be worn alone in the summer months to keep your feeling cool and looking sharp but are also thin enough to be comfortably layered beneath tailoring. As the temperatures drop, layer them up for warmth without the bulk.
Our fine gauge women's knitwear can be paired with trusty basics such as your favourite denim for off-duty chic at its finest or dressed up with statement jewellery and heels for an elegant evening look.
Fine gauge women's knits are the key to year-round layering. In the summer months, a lightweight jumper or cardigan is all you’ll need to keep those spring-time breezes at bay. When the temperature starts to drop, layer a fine-knit cardigan or jumper over a t-shirt and under a leather jacket for a look that’s cosy yet cool and streamlined.
Gauge simply refers to the number of stitches a garment has per inch. The finer the needle or yarn is, the slighter the stitch will be and therefore the gauge will be higher which creates our fine knit women’s garments. In the summer months, you’re likely to find our 30-gauge knitwear gracing these pages. Made using our very lightest weave, it’s a style that’s perfect for those balmy summer days. The unbeatable combination of our premium natural fibres and our iconic style will keep you looking, and feeling, cool no matter what the thermostat reads.
In the winter, we start to introduce more of our 24-gauge medium weight knitwear. Still incredibly lightweight, our fine knitwear allows you to layer up against the cold without adding bulk to your frame.
