Scots poetry inspires Todd & Duncan for Autumn/Winter
17
Aug '11
The integrity of the Scottish landscape and the power of nature in all of its complexity and subtlety symbolise this season's Todd & Duncan Cashmere collection. Inspired by Scots poetry written over a century ago it captures the ethereal elements of day turning to night creating a colour story that is rich in atmosphere and mysticism.

Three new product innovations are launched for autumn/winter 2012/13. The Hebridean Collection, inspired by Scottish land and seascapes; Glen Lyon a new textured marl with a voluminous look and lightness of touch; and Glitz, - whose name says it all – offering sophisticated sparkle for evening wear.

The Hebridean Collection returns Todd & Duncan to its roots and embraces one of its finest traditional skills - producing stunning hand-made colour melanges (mixtures). All the work has been done by the eye to create individuality and character in every shade. The new colours are a collection of tinted heathered grey melanges, which capture the atmosphere of Scottish Hebridean land and seascapes ranging from lichens, liverworts, mosses and rock formations across the west of Scotland. In addition, the rugged and luminous nature of Scottish gemstones, from agate to jasper, echoes throughout the collection.

New for the season is Glen Lyon, combining the perfect cashmere and wool blend to create a textural marled appearance, made with a new slub yarn. Its' three-dimensional character and style give a voluminous look and lightness of touch. The colour story centres on the more vibrant melanges inspired by the main cashmere collection, giving a relaxed look when knitted up for both men's and womenswear.

Glitz – is the glimmer for 2012/13 – an elegant golden hue to work with the cashmere melange colours from rich reds through to teal blues and greens, including the Hebridean colours. A great evening look, which will give an added interest to intarsia, three-dimensional designs and trims for womens' collections.

This is the season to revisit the techniques of the 'Fishermen's jumper' from across the British Isles. In particular the personalised stitches and their symbolism; cables, diamonds, moss stitches, fern stitches, micro honeycombs - all of these echo the season's inspiration in every scale and thickness of knitwear. Closer study of structure and pattern formation in Scottish gemstones and minerals has also created an endless source of ideas; undulating linear looks playing with plain and pearl stitches or close colours in intarsia to interpret the layers of strata. It is the season to also consider creative techniques such as:- pleating, swirls, frills and lattice work in a variety of winter weights.

As the world's leading spinner of luxury woollen spun yarns made in Scotland, Todd & Duncan has a unique heritage with many international fashion brands and couture houses, along with inspirational designers, whom they continue to build and develop relationships with on a global basis.
