Bond Street W1 Knitwear

Nobody's perfect, but at Bond Street W1 we try very hard at it...


...and occasionally we succeed. Ethical clothing is one of the hottest topics in the fashion industry and of course we're trying to do our bit too. Take our latest knitwear collection for example – it's British made (in fact the factory is local to our HQ) and is produced by a company which, like ourselves, is also family-run. Many of their staff have been with them since the very first day they opened their doors over a decade ago and that's probably because the company have a reputation for treating their people extremely well, exactly like family in fact. Importantly, they also have an official ethical audit score of 99 out of 100 which covers everything from working conditions and wages to hygiene, health and safety and waste management, but like we said, nobody's perfect! So let me tell you about just some of the beautiful garments their team have been busy knitting for us... 


I'm in love with them all but I'm particularly smitten with the pretty Zara pale Lilac Zebra Striped Knitted Dress (£29.99). This is going to look fabulous with heels for a night out or worn with chunky trainers for day-to-day wear like the ones our model is wearing (£34.99). There's also a striking black and white version of this figure-hugging dress. Alternatively, if you prefer your dresses slightly looser fitting then check out the classic bone coloured Jennifer Ribbed Dress (£30) with its attractive polo collar, short sleeves and three-quarter button front detail. We're pretty sure that this pretty little number could easily become your go-to dress this summer.  


Our Lilly Lemon Knit Co-Ordinated Two-Piece (£30) with its relaxed sleeveless top and drawstring shorts will make the perfect throw-on choice for lazy summer days either at home or away. Sandals (from £19.99) are a must with this super on trend, lightweight, soft and comfy casual set – also available in white. Your summer wardrobe simply won't be complete without a versatile tank top worn on its own or with a classy white shirt and then combined with jeans (cut off or otherwise), plain shorts or flared or skinny skirts. Our lovely Lara Crew Neck Vest in contrast dog tooth knit (£20) in lilac or orange pastels, dare we say it, will fit that bill perfectly. 


Keep an eye out for more great garments coming soon, exclusively to Bond Street W1, from this great British knitter.
