Autumnal Inspiration at Gudrun Sjödén

Geranium jacquard knit cardigan by Gudrun Sjödén

Gudrun Sjödén's Autumn 2016 collection is inspired by the Big Apple of New York and takes us on a journey through the urban streets of Chinatown, to the industrial market area turned cultural hub of the Meatpacking District, and on to the leafy roof top gardens of Brooklyn where I feel right at home.

The pick of the season: Gudrun Sjödén's Geranium wrap cardigan

Her knitwear is particularly strong this season and my favourite piece (so far) is the Geranium patterned jacquard-knit wraparound cardigan which comes in three colourways of pomegranate, moss green and black. I love this garment so much but found it impossible to choose between the pomegranate and the moss, eventually deciding to have both! The cut is so flattering and cosy, perfect for layering at this time of year. It even has a perfectly practical patch pocket.

The cardigan looks wonderful with everything but I've paired it here with Gudrun's Apple printed cotton/linen tunic in artemisia pale green, and a copper coloured eco-cotton dress with a seersucker texture from her Basic range which has a warm orange tone that I know will give me a real lift on grey autumn days.
