Quintessentially British by Leslie Harding

5 Mar

I grew up in rural Norfolk so in my head British fashion to me means Tweed caps, Knitwear jumpers, wellies and gilets – A typically British, country look. More and more iconic British looks are progressing on to our high streets and catwalks.

Knitwear 

Knitwear 

We Brits love our Knitwear, and rightly so with the winter have just had. What is better than throwing on your favourite chunky knitwear sweater or cardigan and curling up in front of a log fire, reading a good book?  British Knitwear became well known when Henry Poole & Co opened up shop in 1806 to clothe the armed forces for the battle of Waterloo. However it wasn’t until after World War One that wool really came into its own in the UK with women’s fashion changing to a more androgynous style. Since then Wool has been a staple in the British fashion world and is often featured on catwalks worldwide.

Tweed

Tweed has to be one of my favourite materials. Everything from the way it’s made to its debonair look. Tweed adds a bit of country infused glamour to any outfit. It has been modernised by many a Brand and there are literally hundreds of styles out there and more than enough colours to fit to any outfit. Tweed originated in Scotland in the 18th century as a heavier, warmer material for the chilly Scottish weather. Its use became synonymous throughout the 19th century with outerwear for the privileged while hunting. Tweed is a typically British, from its colour to its thickness it breathes British into every outfit.

British fashion is about the way something is created not just the style. Many of our fashion choices were made through the necessity for hard wearing and warm materials but it is through impeccable workmanship that these old school beauties have been able to take pride of place in our ever growing British fashion portfolios.
