We are loving our new autumn / winter arrivals, especially now the weather is really starting to turn, and so we thought we would share our top picks with you. Tis the season to be cosy!

I get first dibs since I am the one writing this blog. I’m really loving all the new knitwear from Dale and Amundsen that we have in stock. It is so beautiful and so soft, not to mention the colours and patterns are pretty cool. However, if I was to pick only one item from our new arrivals, it would have to be the Amundsen’s Boiled Hoody with lace front. The knit is really cool, it has a smooth knit on the front and then a textured knit on the arms and the back which adds a nice twist. The lace up front looks cool and the hood is awesome! I find it really annoying when hoods are dull and hang limp but the hood on this holds its shape well and fits nicely when up. Both colours, Sage and Weathered Red, are super nice but I think my favourite might be the red. This is a super cosy and super soft jumper that screams hygge and cuddles by the fire.

I absolutely love the Fjallraven, Woodsman Cap. I love spending time outdoors with my dog Lola and enjoy the odd hunt or two. This hat is great for being outside at this time of year because it is so warm and cosy. I really love the faux fur ear flaps that feature beautiful leather button straps. As well as adding to the warmth, they add a touch of style. It is on my Dear Santa list for 2017 as it will go great with my Singi Trekking Jacket!

The Fjallraven Bergtagen Eco Shell jacket and trousers are on my Christmas wish list. Both feature waterproof three-layer technology that is breathable. Unlike many waterproof garments, these are made with a quiet material so it isn’t immediately obvious that they are waterproof. The technical material is also flexible, making them ideal outer wear for high intensity activities. The Eco Shell material is made from 100% partially recycled polyester with a fluorocarbon-free impregnation, so they are relatively environmentally friendly. They also look really cool.

I am going to go with the Chevalier Vintage Stretch pants because although they might not be to everyone’s taste, they really embrace everything that we stand for. They are stylish, comfortable and functional. They are great for outdoor activities but they will also look good in the city.

I really like the Didriksons Women’s Ulla Coat. The lining is so soft and comfortable and it is a great coat for the unpredictable weather of autumn – warm and waterproof. I really like the colour, yellow is definitely in just now.

I think the Houdini Power Houdi is just so cool. It looks ace and it has a really comfortable fit. It keeps you warm but doesn’t make you overheat thanks to its breathable and moisture wicking properties. Sustainability is at the core of all that Houdini do which is always a plus.

I think I would have to pick the Vicuna Alpaca Hiker Socks. There are just so lovely and soft, something different that we haven’t had in store before. They are sure to keep feet warm and cosy during the autumn and winter months.
