With the outdoorsy-inspired cottagecore trend still going strong, it’s no wonder the traditional Fair Isle print is making a comeback too. Although the long-loved staple of après-skiers originated in the Shetland Islands in Scotland, it has been reworked year after year with modern sensibilities – and now it’s ready to slot into your wintry portfolio and help you to make a statement.
Whether you’re after Swiss chalet looks or a cool It girl style, these colourful pieces are this season’s true must-have.
You don't necessarily have to be holidaying in snow-capped mountains to channel the après-chic look (although it helps). Our Neya Fair Isle Mini Dress is knitted from an uber-soft wool-alpaca blend to wrap you up in plush comfort. The traditional graphic print is reworked in joyful hues and seen here trimming its mini profile, perfect for wearing for this year’s Christmas dinners or when having cocktails in cosy wood-paneled bars.
When two winter essentials meet, the Neya Fair Isle Cardigan is born. The casual silhouette perfectly showcases our take on the charming pattern, with tortoiseshell buttons ensuring easy on and off. Weave it into your everyday styling routine by layering it over crisp shirts and tapered trousers or vintage jeans and trainers. For an extra dose of cottagecore-meets-prairie chic, style over a blouse with a contrasting Peter Pan collar.
From countryside to the city
This season, the colourful pattern can be seen printed atop everything from dresses and vests to beanie hats, but there is style where the Fair Isle print just makes complete sense – a classic thick, wool-blend jumper. Whether you’re spending your weekend in the wholesome Cotswolds or exploring city streets, our Neya Fair Isle Jumper will keep you warm and quintessentially cool.
It's time to layer in style.
