Rouland Mouret is putting an ethical spin on one of his bestselling designs. Together with model and longtime friend Katherine Poulton, co-founder of The North Circular, Mouret has created a limited edition of his popular “Eugene” top in an arresting herringbone-and-plaid pattern. Like all of The North Circular’s garments, it’ll be hand-knitted by British grannies using locally sourced alpaca and Global Organic Textile-certified wool.

WOOL-SCHOOLED

“Working with Roland is great as he always has a clear vision of how he wants the piece to be, especially when he drapes directly on to the body,” Poulton, who operates the label with fellow clotheshorse Lily Cole, told British Vogue. “The forms he makes are always so unexpected and brilliant, enhancing your figure in the most chic way. He was keen to push traditional handmade cable knit into a fashion-forward piece. This is the new sexy take on the classic Aran jumper.”

More, please!
