nola's new knits

Much as I don’t want to wish away this wonderful summer, there’s something about opening boxes of beautiful knitwear that makes me yearn for crisp autumn mornings and curling up in front of a roaring fire.

This season our labels have really excelled themselves when it comes to woolens. The autumn/winter collections are chunky and textured, rich with merino wool, cashmere, mohair and alpaca. Luxurious comfort in pieces you will wear season after season.

Here are a few of the highlights:


‘Subtle’ and ‘leopard print’ rarely go together but nola favourites A.P.C. have managed it! A sheer knit in the softest silk and cashmere blend, it feels and looks wonderful.

This Jenny sweater is incredibly soft to touch. The combination of mohair in the material and the pointelle knit make it substantial but light as a feather. We’ve got it in a lovely light beige as well as this diagonally striped black and white.

If there’s one piece that will make you crave autumn’s mellow fruitfulness, it’s this. Heavy duty and 100% merino wool, this cape just exudes Parisian chic.

Chinti & Parker

If it’s 100% cashmere you want, Chinti & Parker are the designers for you! This season, their offerings include these three beauties. The Stars sweater also comes in oatmeal and blue.

Leon & Harper

This Mae sweater is enough to make a Danish detective jealous! This heavy knit is handmade, meaning no two are exactly the same.


These Marcel, Misha and Maxence knits are all in wonderful alpaca-rich blends. Soft and substantial, you won’t want to take them off come spring!

Rabens Saloner

The Rabens Saloner collection for Autumn/Winter features several knits in luxurious blends including merino wool, alpaca and, in this case, every punk’s favourite material – mohair. A looser knit, their sweaters are hang beautifully and are a joy to wear.

This is just a sample of the knits available at nola this season. There are more from all the labels above, plus alpaca blends from Pomandère and wonderful jumpers from YMC in chilli, tobacco and rainbow stripes. Check out all this season's knitwear by clicking here.
