At this time of year I’m thinking about knitwear purchases and planning a few cosy additions to my wardrobe.


When I spotted this soft cobalt blue jacquard knit from German brand Hallhuber I knew I’d found a jumper to see me through long Winter nights. I imagine its fresh shade, simple cut and delicate gemstone embellishment would suit Kate Middleton or women looking to emulate her classic style. You may not have heard of Hallhuber but it’s rapidly becoming the brand of choice for stylish women who seek effortless clothes in quality fabrics.


Snap up a piece of sophisticated Hallhuber knitwear or a thick wool dress from House of Fraser Glasgow or online
