Premium British Cashmere
As we begin to plan our spring wardrobes, versatile pieces that translate from season to season are a must. While knitwear is a core winter staple, we’re looking to newly launched label Last of England for high quality, trans-seasonal cashmere pieces.
The brand was born after founder Tom Heber-Percy struggled to find modern cashmere that matched the quality of a historical piece from his father’s wardrobe. From this starting point, Last Of England was conceived, with the brand now using leading mills in Hawick, Scotland, to produce timeless knitwear of a higher class.
Keeping things local, the label looks to the “quiet self-confidence and pride that is present in definitive British style” for its aesthetic, according to a statement, adapting key looks from archival imagery. This is no more evident than in the brand’s Teba jacket (£350), which is inspired by a Savile Row original tailored for King Alfonso, later gifted to the Count of Teba.
However, our favourite piece from the current Last of England collection has to be the basket-weaved cashmere knit (£300), which comes in a soft tan shade – perfect for welcoming in the fresh start of spring.
You can shop Last of England’s full collection at lastofengland.co.uk now, with prices starting at £205.
