The Knitwear designer graduated in 2008 from Central Saint Martin’s and interned for the likes of Alexander McQueen, worked as an assistant knitwear designer for Rag&Bone and then went on to co-find North Circular – a luxury british knitwear label. So to put it plain and simple she is all over this.
The brands look and feel can be defined as “Contemporary wearable knitwear, with a clean understated aesthetic.” Which to me perfectly encapsulates the brand along with their trademark piece being “the colour block sweater”. Each range revolves around a particular colour to make each and every collection pop and add to the aesthetic appeal of these deluxe knitwear garments.
The Brand itself I believe is beautiful and a must have for the coming cooler months. Each Knit has the look and feel of something unique, well thought of and that signature item that should be in your closet for those days when you just want to throw on something and go grab a coffee. Not only do you get exceptional quality from a brand that wants to pride itself on its British aesthetic but a brand you can pretty much wear all year round as hell!
Head down to London boutiques to check out Blake LDN’s latest collections and take a piece of the love affair home with you!
