The intricacies of his techniques, all designed, developed, programmed and knitted in-house from his studio in London, are emphasised producing garments that barely resemble wool.

Deep colours, peacock blues and burgundy reds are scattered amongst more muted tones of black, military green and chestnut brown, complemented by soft glistening hints of metallic.
