In 2010 Hayley Menzies launched her eponymous label, breathing new life into the classic pashmina by trimming shawls with recycled furs and feathers. The business became an overnight success so Menzies, keen to further develop her brand designed her debut knitwear collection for AW16. Hayley Menzies draws her main source of inspiration from her direct surroundings be it Portobello or through international travels. Consciously ethical Menzies continues to work with manufacturers in the UK and across Europe and works with high quality materials that include Italian blend cashmere, merino and cotton blends, recycled fur, leather and shearling.
The Love Story Collection consists of dramatic graphic blanket-shawls trimmed with custom-made pom poms and tassels, kimonos with tassle details, shaggy cardigans and shearling bags in a soft colour palate.
Made from a cotton and cashmere blend, the collection is trans-seasonal with a timeless aesthetic.
