Every season we select a colour palette for our Scottish cashmere collection. Once shades have been decided upon the design team conscientiously put together the rest of our collection.
“I love creating traditional knitwear with a modern twist, from our unique Fair Isle designs that are bright and bold, to our modern cashmere classics that are timeless and elegant. Using natural fibres such as wool, merino and of course super soft Scottish cashmere offers the Brora customer knitwear that lasts, it is breathable and when it reaches the end of its wearable life it is even biodegradable.”
Senior Knitwear Designer
Fabrics are selected to coordinate with our knitwear colours, but also introduce texture and comfort to our collection. We are proud of our relationships with our suppliers, and we work with factories all over the world that are experts in making quality garments.
“We have numerous partners all over the world who we visit regularly. From those that craft exquisite fabrics such as our Italian corduroy and European linen, to Liberty Arts Fabrics and our factories in Portugal who make our clothing so diligently and passionately, it is fantastic seeing our designs be transformed into the end garment.”
Drawing inspiration from places, exhibitions, moods and even vintage prints the design team carefully curate a full collection of knitwear and clothing that is inspiring but also embraces Brora’s slow fashion ethos. We are passionate about creating beautiful clothing that lasts, in timeless styles, of course, that doesn’t mean we do not love fashion.
“Each collection stems from a mood board of ideas which gives us themes for stories that form our collection. Imagine Mediterranean islands, contemporary crafts, modern architecture and blissful high summer evenings. Who wouldn’t want clothes designed from these dreamy topics?! Every single piece of Brora is designed with love, care, and most importantly, with the Brora customer at its heart!”
Nobody knows our customers quite like our Founder and Creative Director Victoria Stapleton. From initial designs to the end garment, Victoria works with the design team and our suppliers to ensure Brora clothing is of the highest quality.
“It is always exciting to see the first samples and a collection begin to come together, and I am always thinking about what our customers might want to add to their wardrobe. I still wear pieces from my early collections and our ethos: to create beautiful fashion that is stylish yet timeless, full of quirky details and clothes that last a lifetime is certainly reflected in every collection.”
