With Savile Row welcoming Wool Week next week Monday, Ally Capellino returns to clothing with a women’s wool collection.
Woven in a diamond pattern on the Isle of Mull, the collarless coat made from un-dyed Manx and Hebridean wool is cut to a kimono shape with fly front, horn buttons, and generous blind stitched pockets. The cotton lining has a concealed breast pocket and touches of leather on the neck facing and button stays.
For this range, Ally has also collaborated with, This Is Cambridge who specialise in making handmade cycling caps, ranging from traditional ‘casquettes’, worn by road/racing cyclists to cycling caps inspired by cycling’s lifestyle.
The TIC Omloop winter cap was inspired by the old style Belgium winter wool caps. This collaborative Omloop cap is made from 100% merino wool for the lining and ear band and an exclusive Ally Capellino wool fabric for the outer cap construction.
Ally Capellino has been chosen as a key ambassador for Campaign for Wool, the brands incredibly exciting line will be dropping in conjunction with Wool Week (5th-11th October).
