Eribe AW20 - New Colours


 I t wouldn't be autumn in Starburst if we didn't have a drop from Scottish knitwear brand Eribe. Now famous for its funky fair isle knitwear in a rainbow hue of colours its always hard to choose a favourite colour. This season we have bought existing favourites such as Piccalili, Tumeric and Nougat pink as well as introducing new colours such as Old Rose and  Lillipad. All knitwear is made from 100% Wool. As with many brands this season stock is very limited. 













East by East West AW20


 A firm winter favourite at Starburst, East by East West have steadily been building a small dedicated band of followers. Chief founder and designer Sunu Lee overseas all the production in Korea and invests not only in finding the best quality fabrics but also in new technology including developing seamless knitwear. This collection is designed to be layered and works very well with existing brands in store including Diega and Sacrecoeur. The model in the picture looks a bit fed up but don`t be put off. The pieces are exquisite and very limited in numbers especially this year due to the pandemic.

Idano fits the bill perfectly and for AW 20 offered classic denim jeans in indigo, over sizes knits in super soft mohair, sophisticated rollnecks and sparkly button through crop cardigans in black and a sprinkling  of pretty liberty prints. All these pieces are purse friendly and have a fresh,  youthful edge. Perfect for weekend dressing and a new zoom /working from home purchase.

Primrose Park AW20





We have a very reduced collection of Primrose Park for AW20 but will be returning with a full and rather amazing collection for SS21. For now here is a small flavour. The old favourites the Tiffany dress and Sandy open shirt all made the cut.














The First Editions - AW20

 


Its been a rollercoaster year but all of a sudden AW 20 seems to of been pulled out of the bag. We have a full collection of knitwear from Cash CA and Absolut Cashmere plus the return of Pyrus, Fabienne Chapot, Sacrecoeur, Nathalie Vleeschouwer and East by East West plus new label additions from Paris based Idano and Danish knitwear brand Sibin Linnebjerg. We still have lots to come in including Fair isle favourite Eribe and a pre spring collection from Delicate Love.  Here is what it looked like when it all first started to drop. Some of the styles have now sold out but we are topping up all the time. 




















Traits Scarfs

 


AW20 see`s the welcome return of Traits into Starburst. This beautiful scarf brand was established in 1994 in Paris by Barbara Platte. Although the twice yearly collection is created in Paris it is manufactured in the South of France.  The brand is know for its bold uses of colour and for using the highest quality fabrics. The founder has worked for some of the biggest names in fashion including Hermes, Versace, Jil Sander and Helmut Lang.  Paired with the current seasons knitwear from Cash CA, Absolut Cashmere and Idano this is smart, grown up band for no brainer dressing.
