While traveling around the country going to the shows I am lucky enough to meet some wonderful designers. It's inspirational to see all the hard work they put in to their stunning designs, making the highest quality items, whilst sharing my passion for keeping British craftsmanship up there with the best. Here are a few of my favourites that will work well with any Liberty Kelly garment...
Penmayne of London
One of my absolute favourites is Penmayne of London, which was started in 2013 by Claire Howsen. Claire and her team's dedication to quality and design is truly impressive. They only work with only the very finest materials and each of their stunning hats are meticulously hand crafted in the UK. The beautiful hats combine modern day elegance with an effortless style. (And stunning imagery)
Mackenzie & George
Mackenzie and George was started a little later by Melanie and Christopher Clarihew who work together to create stunning accessories at affordable prices. Their use of colour is wonderful and can be added to any outfit to make it that little bit more special. All of their products are made in Britain in their family owned Shropshire studios. Their gorgeous leather belts are hand crafted with vegetable tanned leathers and solid brass fittings.
Sam from David Watson collaborates with some of his favourite designers to bring together a stunning collection of British made silk scarf's. Each one is finished with a hand rolled hem, ensuring the products last the test of time. His colour pallets are beautiful and there really is one to suit any outfit.
Equestrian Jewellers was started 15 years ago by the late Robert Stead, and is now run by his son Chris Stead and partner Christina Peppercorn. Chris uses the techniques his father taught him to bring us the most stunning equestrian influenced jewellery. All their pieces are individually hand finished and crafted using 'lost wax casting' which enables intricate detail.
And then of course there's Liberty Kelly!..... started by me, Liberty. I have a wonderfully talented team of women who hand make all our jackets, ponchos and coats. Each item is made with love, and the team all share in my passion for quality and craftsmanship, ensuring every line, hem and curve of our jackets is just as it should be.
Our tweed jackets can be worn day or night, casual or evening, office or country. The woollen ponchos bring a wonderful style and warmth to cold wet winters and our new limited edition colours celebrate the spring. All our Collection items are made from the finest British tweed.
