We’re used to seeing Sophie Dahl cooking in a pristine, shabby chic kitchen but now she’s designed a capsule collection for Brora.
The collection will launch in just a couple of days and is called ‘The Lost Weekend’. The 13 pieces are what Sophie says are items missing from her wardrobe…although I highly doubt her wardrobe is missing anything!
“I imagined it as the-morning-after-the night-before – a woman on an island after a party, walking home with her shoes in her hands,” Dahl said.
“Everything around her quite wild and undone, but she’s wearing these quintessentially British-feeling colour tones and patterns. The picture in my head was one of rainy English summers and festivals, being tarted-up and having your make-up running everywhere – that kind of vibe.”
One of her favourite pieces is a tea dress and other items include a fisherman’s jumper, a cashmere shawl-come-cardigan and more.
“I am a lover of beautiful, well-made clothes and I feel that between Brora and I, we came up with something truly special,” added Dahl.
