Brighten up your Winter Wardrobe with these Bolds from the Louise Gray for Brora Collection

Discarded Prosecco glasses in amongst the clothes, Henry Holland lurking by the cash desk chatting and a fun, vibrant and colourful slant on cashmere, could only mean that I'd arrived at the Louise Gray for Brora launch last night.  

Some of you may recall that I attended a preview of Brora's autumn/winter collection a couple of months ago and was pleasantly surprised with their offering due to my pre-conceived impression of the brand.  As if to further defy my misconceptions they've now teamed up with quirky designer Louise Gray to present an 11 piece limited collection, available until the end of January but one that I don't really forsee making it's way past November.  My last chat with creator and owner of Brora, Victoria Stapleton, made me appreciate how dedicated her team are to ensure that women everywhere aren't rocking out the same outifts.  That gorgeous Parisian style floral dress for example only had 200 made and of course two months down the line is unsurprisingly sold out.  This collection is no different, with only 20-50 pieces made of each item it means there's no time for "sleeping on it" if you're enamoured, like I was, with that "can't live without" piece!

The collaboration comprises of jumpers, cardigans, a dress, snood, hats, wrist warmers, socks and the most heavenly  indulgent stole that I spent the majority of the evening sneaking off and draping around my neck, only to be caught by Victoria on numerous occasions who simply exclaimed "You're so funny, just get it, you love it."  

Caught in the act!
The items stay true to the Brora brand and the collaboration really works but it's also so different from their usual collections, adding a contemporary, eccentric twist to classic timeless pieces.


  1. This collection isn't to my usual taste but with your photographs and descriptions I've begun to warm to it. :)

  2. So sad I couldn't make it to the event. My husband had to go and have a birthday ;)

    Loved that scarf when I saw it online! Had I made it there, I would have been sneaking it on too!
