Berry picking days may be over for the season, but we can still keep the essence of nature in mind when it comes to choosing complimentary and colourful accessories for our winter wardrobe. These deeply stained hues that bridge the colour gap somewhere between crimson and violet are spilling over onto the current fashion palette with lavish intensity.
Go for berrylicious warmth with this simple yet stylish cowl designed to twirl not once but twice around your neck. Its knit in a soft, silky blend of bamboo sourced viscose and wool that drapes with elegance and ease.
