Dashing Tweeds - indeed!

More then what you expect... Dashing Tweeds was recently launched by weaver Kirsty McDougall and photographer Guy Hills. Everything about this British company's offerings are enticing - from cut to colour to materials. Their current collection includes hats, capes, jackets, knitwear, suits, bags and waistcoats woven with the EXCITING retroflective LumatwillsTM

"A unique weave of wool worsted and reflective yarn, LumatwillsTM appear by day only in their smart combination of colours. By night, under illumination, hidden reflective lines shine out, offering an inventive and stylish solution to attire for the pedestrian, cyclist or scooter rider."

Their selection of tweeds are exquisite. Above is the a swatch from The Specials collection which "will change each season and is inspired by the zeitgeist. The present collection drew from modernist weaves of the Bauhaus school."
