Cashmere is not just for autumn and winter; Crumpet’s fine delicate pieces are also perfect for summer. When we first started thinking about our SS11 collection, we wanted to do something that was fun and girly, so we started to think about florals and large abstract prints, things that we have never seen on cashmere before. The collection has been deeply inspired by Florida and Hawaii and the colours we have chosen have the strong vibrant feeling of South Beach and Miami.

Crumpet cashmere is really about exclusive, luxurious trans-seasonal investments. Our cashmere cardigans are light and fine, simply perfect to be thrown on over your summer dress when it gets that little bit chilly in the evening. You will be able to take something you purchase this season and wear it next season in a completely different way.

How would you describe the Crumpet woman?

Sophisticated and contemporary.

Kate was brought up living in the exotic locations of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea where she developed a lifelong love and curiosity for nature and in particular silk and the mystery of metamorphosis – a single thread from a cocoon producing one of the most luxurious and ancient fabrics in the world. Duppoini silk fabric is known for its luxury and excellent drape.

Her vivid memories are the inspiration for the collection which have been interpreted through detailed sketches by Polina Gineva, the ex-Alexander McQueen designer responsible for those infamous and iconic skull scarves.

Duppoini’s signature designs are ‘The Gem Bugs’: The bug of Good Luck, Scarab Bugs, inspired by the composition of a Gem Stone leading to a stunning fashion led design.

Hannah Martin creates luxurious and decadent collections described as ‘jewellery for men, that girlfriends will steal’. Sharp bold shapes, specific combinations of precious stones and metal, overall I would say sculptural elegance and masculine detail.

How would you describe the Hannah Martin man/woman?

Hot. Of course. We have clients from so many walks of life – so it’s hard to be specific. I would say however that our client is someone who appreciates good design, high level of craftsmanship, British manufacture, and an item that has a story.
