THE FRENCH CONNECTION
Our friends on the continent, Bergère de France, have been beavering away behind the scenes, creating beautiful designs for all the family, and here’s the result – Creations 2015-2016! We’ve had a peak in the pages of the new catalogue (out August 1) and can reveal that it’s even better than we could have hoped for. There are dreamy folk-inspired knits for romantic weekends spent in the great outdoors, cosy pullovers to take you from late summer through to autumn, cute kids’ knits, homewares and accessories – even slippers that look just like basketball boots! And of course, there are plenty of new yarns coming that are just waiting to be whipped up into gorgeous knits. A Creations2015-2016, available August 1. To buy, go to bergeredefrance.co.uk
