The London-based ethical and sustainable luxury knitwear brand produces high-quality and handmade designs, sourced from premium materials that would have otherwise gone to waste in big production factories.
Valentina Karellas’ latest gender-neutral collection surpasses gender roles and forms and is purely about colour, comfort and quality. The collection features strong lines of bold colour which are softened by loose flowing fibres and features an extended range of cashmere jumpers and felted Merino Wool jackets which are soft to the touch and pleasing to the eye. The pieces are timeless; modern yet historic.
The Cashmere Capsule Collection introduces a new approach to Valentina Karellas’ knitwear. “Where there is colour, there is shade. Where there is fluidity, there is rigidity. Neutral Fluid introduces this new approach to our AW20 collection and I’m excited to share it with everyone,” says Valentina Karellas, Founder and Designer of her self-named brand.
Through dedication to sourcing and handcrafting everything locally, the brand continues London’s rich heritage of quality manufacturing. All pieces are handmade in Valentina’s small North West London workshop, and are made to order, leaving zero waste in the production. This leads to a more conscious shopping experience that reduces the carbon footprint whilst delivering exceptional quality pieces that look stylish and are crafted to last.
Valentina Karellas collections range from urban-chic jumpers, jackets, trousers and skirts, to accessories such as handbags, scarves, hats and more, all made from high-quality fabrics such as Merino Wool, Scottish Lambswool, cashmere and natural cotton. Designs range from £15 – £700 and can be purchased online at www.valentinakarellas.com.
With every purchase made directly through Valentina Karellas’ website, £5 is donated to Bloody Good Period, a charity that provides menstrual supplies to asylum seekers, refugees and those who can’t afford them.
