Joe Casely-Hayford for John Lewis


after reading about style salvage steve's droolicious shoes from joe-casely hayford for john lewis, i made it a point to go check out the collection at john lewis. the collection was small but filled with many beautiful pieces. i thought the jackets were outstanding in terms of price points and fit.


one of two pieces i tried on was this sumptuous cardigan, made from merino wool and suede. yes, a suede front cardigan. what's more amazing is the price point: it retails for £99. however it was made known to me that they reduced the prices last week, down from £150. a quiet price reducing strategy before the mad summer sales reductions. i don't think my pic does the cardigan any justice, it really does feel and look amazing.


another item that i tried was the floral shirt in liberty art fabrics. loud as it seems, but i thought it will work very well underneath a sweater or cardigan.


a closer look at the floral shirt


i really like the fit and feel of the fabrics. i actually walked away from both pieces, but i think i might revisit again. i am still thinking about the wool/suede cardigan... and the shirt...



great partnership between joe casely-hayford and john lewis. i hope the collaboration will continue next season.

  1. Guess that's the beauty of living in London, u got to find lots of great bargains on loads of nice things, envy, envy...

    Loving the cardigan, but can't use them down here, unless u're constantly in a AC room the whole time, even a cotton cardigan can make u break a sweat here in Indonesia :(
