First seen at  London Fashion Week, Johnstons of Elgin's Autumn Winter 19 collection takes traditional designs in a new direction, featuring our softest fabrics in new weights and colours. Inspired by the heyday of travel, when plane, steamship and motorcars offered new opportunities for adventure, double-faced matte cashmere, lightweight merino wool and intarsia knits are integral to the luxury collection.

Our aviation-inspired Hand Knit Intarsia Cardigan is one example, hand intarsia knitted in Scotland using a technique that utilises over 200 years of expertise. Each colour of this limited edition piece is meticulously laid in by hand, one row at a time, with one garment taking 10 hours to knit.

The capital city's high profile event also showcased our men's Sartorial Chesterfield Top Coat, featuring an archive check from our 1938 records and our women's Opera Coat in a bold blue and green, with an oversized collar and relaxed, silk charmeuse lined design.

This collection exemplifies our brand's exceptional craftsmanship, including our new 30-gauge merino wool Superfine Round Neck T-shirt and Round Neck Cardigan. These beautifully soft pieces are made with 100% Worsted Merino Wool, with the finest micron available. They can be worn individually or layered together for a contemporary take on the classic twinset. In accessories, flashes of tartan give a nod to our proud Scottish heritage, which dates right back to 1797.
