This surely is the chicest cover-up of the season. The divinely tactile lambswool blanket pictured here is the product of The Gentlewoman’s newest partnership for autumn and winter 2016 with Paul Smith, master of upbeat fashions and candy-coloured stripes. Curl up in its rosy warmth and luxuriate in its many ingenious design particulars.
Look! Sir Paul Smith has worked closely with The Gentlewoman on a design that mirrors the magazine’s precise dimensions – 23 by 30 centimetres – in a stylish pane check. The colours, meanwhile, celebrate two of the title’s most beloved covers, with an “Inez navy” and a “Lansbury pink”, from issues 2 and 6 respectively.
The downy-soft handle is the hallmark of Paul Smith’s Tuscan mill, where the blanket has been crafted from South African lambswool into a sheet 170-by-130-centimetre with a 19.5-micron grain for a dense weave with a gossamer touch.
Twirl the ravishing purled fringe around in your fingers and enjoy the reassuring flourish of a 100 per cent luxury accessory – perfect for parading around in or creating instant coverage at home.
