Quality & Craftsmanship
As we recover from the shock of a global pandemic, it is time to celebrate with a new season wardrobe to bring fresh confidence and excitement as we travel, socialise and work together again.
For Spring/Summer ’22, the Louise Kennedy ready-to-wear collection makes the ultimate sartorial statement using luxury fabrics and expert crafting skills. As ever, the understated collection comprises beautiful, crafted clothes in elegant yet effortless designs that remain in fashion season after season, thanks to the luxury handwriting the label exudes.
Special occasions are back on the agenda such as weddings, anniversaries and important work meetings; this season’s collection places special focus on exquisite details, like feather and beaded embellishments, ultra-flattering silhouettes and beautiful fabrics with interesting textures. Bridget Bardot-esque relaxed glamour reflects a collective excitement for the return of social life, special celebrations and travel to fabulous far off destinations
Strength is expressed with a powerful colour palette with energy-boosting shades like turquoise, bright pink, bold navy and sophisticated ivory.
Separates in sharp tailoring, contemporary ribbed knits, and feminine ruffle silks strongly feature, such as the dramatic Mia Blazer, Jenna silk shirt and Olivia trousers, or the double-face India coat and Kaia silk dress.
As ever, the collection features statement fabrics from Linton Tweeds.
Linton, based in Carlisle has a longstanding tradition of creating beautiful novelty fabrics handwoven to this day for their initial strike off. It has always been the first port of call when we start a new collection. Established in 1912, Linton has an extensive client portfolio when you consider the brands they work alongside including some of the worlds most prestigious French and Italian fashion houses. Their use of multiple threads and different tension mechanisms create the texture and unique novelty feel to the fabric.

We send love and appreciation to our craftsmen and women in Italy, France, Portugal, and India who help us each season produce such beautiful garments.
