New season sneak peek AW20
Is it just me or does it feel like about a decade since we last had a new season sneak peek? When we did our last one back in February we were oblivious to the oncoming Covid-storm, and had no idea that over the coming season we'd run the roller coaster of wondering whether there would even be a Kettlewell Colours in September, cancelling our high summer collection plans, quietly regaining confidence as our incredible customers continued to support us, and eventually gathering the confidence to launch an Autumn/Winter collection which is almost indistinguishable in size and colour range from our usual September offering.
As a result, I am even more thrilled than usual to be able to share this new season sneak peek with you, and to be able to confirm that new season products will be available to order from 2nd September. Alongside new colours and new styles, there is a good dose of the Kettlewell favourites you've loved for season after season.
As always, I could have picked a dozen or more favourites, but I've limited myself to a mere five pieces from the new collection, and I can't wait for you to see the entire collection in less than a fortnight!
Long Sleeve Faux Wrap
Our 3/4 Sleeve Faux Wrap is such a favourite, and a cold-weather option has been in hot demand, so we've produced a long sleeved version of this bestseller. I love how simple yet flattering this one is - add a camisole underneath for an extra pop of colour, or wear it alone for a more va va voom look, and the flattering ruching will give you the waist of your dreams. In short, the Long Sleeve Faux Wrap truly is one of those day to night pieces that won't let you down.

Lucy Leopard Dress
I think this might be my single favourite piece from the new collection. Effortless to wear thanks to the lumps-and-bumps-camouflaging leopard print and flattering waist pleats, while the high neckline and cut keep it feeling modern and fresh. Opaques, ankle boots and this dress are going to be my uniform of the season.

This is the easiest sweater you're going to wear this winter. This boxy V-neck knit has ribbed details, split hem and dropped shoulders. The relaxed fit is perfect for disguising any post-lockdown problem areas and the heavy gauge merino wool is super cosy. I particularly love the rainbow of colours we've achieved for our knitwear this year!

Aurelia Long Cardigan
This was another hot contender for 'Jo's favourite piece of the season' - I love the elegant simplicity of this longline, minimalist pure merino wool cardigan. But if this isn't the right cardigan for you (if, for instance, you're curvier or prefer something a little chunkier) then panic not - the range of cardigans, coatigans and classic jersey wraps this season is better than ever before so you're guaranteed to find the right one for you.

I cannot wait for you to try these. With the rise and rise of working from home, clothes that feel as luxurious as they look are the order of the day, and these Palazzo Pants fit the bill perfectly. Smart enough to wear with a Zoom-meeting-worthy top, but as comfortable as your favourite pyjamas, I guarantee it will be love at first sight with these wide legged, roll top waistband Palazzo Pants.
