Sophie Dahl, supermodel, chef and author can now add designer to her many-stringed bow. The blonde one with big eyes has created a capsule collection of 13 pieces for cashmere label Brora called The Lost Weekend. Quintessentially British in feel, the collection includes a pretty swallow-print tea dress, slouchy fisherman’s jumper and soft cashmere cardigan. While some, many in fact, ‘celebrity’ fashion collections are, to put it nicely, a bit pants, Dahl’s designs (has a nice ring to it) are exactly the kind of thing you’d wear for a holiday in Cornwall or a soggy trip to Glastonbury, and actually, are really rather fabulous.
Emily tea dress, £179; Marilyn Marl jumper, £145; Talitha silk dress, £275. Available now online and nationwide in stores on 15th April.
