Get The Look The Dig

the dig film basil brown ralph fiennes netflix brown floppy hatIf Christopher Bailey made a film it would be The Dig. The story of Basil Brown and his discovery of the ancient Anglo Saxon treasure of Sutton Hoo, it is a master class in washed out 1930s style. That end of summer, sliding into autumn feeling of swaying grasses and bleached out countryside.

The style takeaways are numerous from Robert Pretty’s rocket knit to Basil’s floppy gardening hat to Peggy Preston’s Roman coin necklace. Dig in!

Label To Know ERIBÉ

Label to know menswear eribé rosemary made in scotland knitwear fair isleI love Scottish knitwear, especially the folky kind, such as fair isle from the likes of Jamieson’s of Shetland, but there’s another label to know. Eribé, eponymously founded by Rosemary Eribé 33 years ago, is a knitwear design house and manufacturer based in Melrose, in the Scottish Borders. They’ve recently taken over the old Burberry mill and opened a new showroom on Tweedbank before Christmas.

I first saw Eribé at the Premium trade show in Berlin a few years ago, and loved their fair isle berets - which I can’t find on their website - and I had a reminder, this year, at Pitti Uomo, where their colourful knits oozed authenticity and quality.

Their designers are specialists in their field, especially in the heritage knitting technique, Fairisle (Fair Isle) all crafted from quality, natural yarns spun in Britain from lambswool and merino.

Proudly all made in Scotland, Eribé exports to 20 countries, and Rosemary continually pushes for innovation in her knitwear, together with her team.

Her vast knowledge has been garnered from working with premium knitwear factories in Scotland and beyond, leading knitting machine companies and consulting with global designer brands.
