Life’s too short to wear boring clothes. Yes an all black ensemble is effortlessly cool, truly timeless and ‘oh so Parisian chic’ but where’s the fun? Surely there’s enough questionable and crazy stuff going on in today’s world to cast a dark shadow over our lives without us all dressing the drab part too. Expressing our personalities through fashion is our god given right and we for one sure intend to make every pavement a catwalk, one fabulously vibrant print at a time.
And top of our lust list for statement style? London-based, feel good fashion connoisseurs, Chinti & Parker. Founded in 2009 by cousins Anna Singh and Rachael Wood, Chinti & Parker is a no nonsense knitwear brand that, tired of play it safe style, sought “material creativity” in the form of clashing colours, childhood inspired prints and the finest yarns they could find.
This playful attitude towards print fused with a no nonsense approach to sophisticated textures has led the heart warmingly kitsch brand to garner a serious following, with style heavyweights Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne, all sporting a Chinti & Parker look over the years.
But if for some insane reason all this hasn’t sold you on the charms of C&P then let us seal the deal with our latest sale offering 65% off some of their most sought after pieces. See our top 5 picks below then shop the entire sale here.
