Showing off her favourite piece from the Charlotte Taylor sale this week is Alice Ashby, knitwear designer extraordinaire. Following roles at accessories label The North Circular and US mega-brand Rag & Bone, Alice decided to start out on her own last year and started the beautiful Blake LDN straight away. Two collections and much acclaim later, you can now find Blake within the hallowed hallways of Paris’s Colette and beyond.
Talk us through your outfit:
I’m wearing the Hula Hoop puff skirt and the Blake Imperial tank in Royal Blue.
What is it you like about the piece/print?
I love the high waisted shape of the skirt – perfect for tucking in tops such as the one I’m wearing or throwing on a sweater. It looks great with trainers or converse. I usually only wear floral prints or the odd bit of tartan so I love this subtle quality & the colour in this print. I also love the fact you just can’t help but doing a twirl in it. Cue – happy face / inner child
Do you prefer head-to-toe or just a hint of print?
I prefer a hint of print – be it a skirt or shirt or scarf.
If you could have one more piece from the collection what would it be?
The Ram Tan Moleskin trousers are on my wish list
And last but not least, what would you call your pet penguin?
