AW14 'Polaris' saw the continuation of our valued partnership with Woolmark, with the collection featuring hybrid and 100% Merino wool garments that utilise the natural warmth, comfort and protective qualities of the knit.
Building on the success of the Cool Wool styles in our SS14 'Sandstorm' menswear collection and 'Mirage' womenswear collection, this season saw signature Christopher Raeburn garments further developed and perfected in a traditional Merino Wool, as well as a quality Hainsworth outerwear wool. Employed in versatile lightweight layering garments, such a knitted T-Shirts, the Merino is also combined with technical fabrics in adaptable hybrid pieces.
To celebrate London Collections: Men AW14, Christopher Raeburn, E. Tautz, Mr. Hare are each giving away an exclusive prize!

Back in May, we participated in Campaign for Wool's ‘Wool School 2013’ competition alongside twelve other retailers including the likes of Barbour, Margaret Howell and Pringle of Scotland, to offer fashion students across the country the opportunity to design a garment inspired by the knitwear traditions of The British Isles. Each retailer hand-picked a winning entry that would go into production, representing their brand and to be sold in their store or stockist. Out of thousands of entries, we chose Eliot Moran's unique and creative new take on the Bomber Jacket. Crafted from a black wool with knitted Breton sleeves, rib trims complete this stylish and practical outerwear piece. Now available to purchase at Harvey Nichols, 5% of all Wool School garment sales will go back into fashion education programmes across the UK.
During Wool Week, Campaign for Wool hosts a variety events and inspiring initiatives aimed at highlighting wool as a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. Read more about Campaign for Wool, Wool Week and how to get involved here.
