K142 Final Cover

Sometimes, an issue comes along that is everything we hoped it would be, and more. The stars align, the weather behaved for the shoot, the model was gorgeous (and fun!), the knits are beautiful and we just end up in love with the whole thing. This is that issue.  

When this bright, fun, beautiful issue landed on my desk screaming 'Get ready for summer' I could feel my spirit lifting and that little spark of excitement at that first hint of summer; what am I going to do, what am going to wear, where am I going to go? No wonder there's a hashtag trending on Twitter saying #CANTWAITFORSUMMER. I really can't!

So, this month we bring you a gorgeous collection of pretty, feminine, early summer knits. Lighter yarns, brighter shades, a hint of luxury silk and mohair, what more could you want? (a parasol, a G&T and a punnet of strawberries. Or is that just me?)

Lace Tee Main 66 (2) Eyelet Main 1711

Onyx Main 0026 (1) Butterfly Main 111 (3)

Don't worry, there are some super pretty longer sleeved tops, should the weather not be as co-operative as we'd like.

We also have some super cool accessory and home knits. How funky is this paisley-design stool? And we love the deco lace stripes on this fab cushion. Don't neglect your home's summer wardrobe too!
