Bee & Sons x Pearl Lowe
Adhering to the principles of slow fashion, the Tallulah Knitwear Collection from Pearl Lowe X Bee&Sons is a limited edition collection, made with EXTRAFINE MERINO wool, a 100% natural yarn, that can be recycled and will biodegrade naturally.
A note from Deb
“I’m so excited to be working with Pearl. We’ve spent hours perfecting this collection so that it ticks all the boxes – it’s a small run, so we minimise our waste, and it’s all natural – but very importantly – it’s cute as hell. We haven’t taken ours off since they arrived. We have so many more ideas on the way, so watch this space.”
The collaboration is a natural fit in many ways. Since launching her womenswear brand in 2017, Pearl has keenly supported UK manufacture, relying on a team of seamstresses local to her Somerset home. Pure cottons, silks, wool and crepe feature in her both home and fashion ranges. Bee&Sons founder, Deborah Bee, uses recycled cashmere, wool, mohair and silk in her knitwear collections, all designed to be recycled. A passion for reducing fashion-waste and producing clothing that will last a lifetime is key for both designers.
The collection is vintage inspired, taking cues from many of Pearl’s dress designs, which look to the past for glamour and elegance.
A note from Pearl
“I’ve been thinking about knitwear for a while. Many of my customers have asked me how I wear my dresses all year round, and I realised I relied on the same 1920s long fitted coat I’d had for years, that I picked up in a vintage shop in Paris. Deb has recreated this shape in a knit – with a waterfall collar, lacey trumpet cuffs and a gently fitted waist. It’s very flattering and works with all my dresses.
We couldn’t resist making some accessories to go with the cardigan – a loose lacey hat, a skinny scarf, a wider scarf and a selection of flowers in wonderful coordinating colours.”
