Essential autumn fashion purchases

Orkney-based knitwear designer Hilary Grant shares her fantasy autumn shopping list

Essential autumn fashion purchases

1. Hello Jenuine’s notebooks are as beautiful as they are functional. The illustrated covers are screenprinted and hand bound. £7.

2. Ally Capellino bags and leathergoods are produced in London and with responsible manufacturers in India. I love this mini-satchel style. Very classic. £400.

3. There’s nothing better than a cup-of-tea-and-a-biscuit cushion. Screenprinted and made entirely in Scotland. £29.50.

4. Folk Clothing is one of my favourite labels. Craftsmanship and quiet detailing is what they do best and these moccasins are absolute testament to that. £250.

5. This is one of my most popular colourways for both lads and lassies. It’s perfect for cyclists, as well, as it’ll never unravel and get caught in the spokes. £75.

6. Kirsteen Stewart works with fairtrade groups and UK craftspeople to produce printed clothing, knitwear and jewellery. I love this wood necklace as it’s really dramatic yet delicate. £25.

7. I’m really delighted to be able to add hats to my knitwear range this year. They’re made in the Scottish Borders. £55.

8. Rain Mac by Noodle Park – a more feminine take on the Fishermans’ coat. The fabric and finish of the coat is stunning and it’s perfect for layering over a chunky Fishermans’ rib jumper. €226.

9. Laura Spring designs wonderful weather-themed accessories. I’d use this both as a pencil case and a clutch bag. £23.

10. Finlay and Co sunglasses. Because I’m an optimist. £120.
