I’m delighted to introduce the That’s Not My Age Edit. A small collection of exclusive items created in collaboration with some of my favourite independent designers. Most of the items have been created by the designer and myself, working together on one of their signature pieces. We all possess a similar mindset about slow fashion and the environment and buying clothes to last. Read more about the collection HERE

This black sweatshirt, made in collaboration with Dandy Star, is emblazoned with the age-positive slogan 'Golden Years' in gold, and refers to making the most of midlife and beyond. Ageing can be liberating, we learn to focus on the stuff that really matters and take pride in our experience. It has an oversized fit, raglan sleeves and an old-school athletic vibe. It's made from 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.
These sparkly party socks are made in collaboration with Genevieve Sweeney. They have been designed in a high quality viscose blend and unlike other glittery knits are soft, smooth and comfy to wear. The sparkly yarn within the socks has STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® certification, meaning that the textile fibres have been extensively tested and declared free of harmful substances. The socks are made in a family-run mill in Derbyshire. All the chemicals/dyes used by the yarn spinners are eco-friendly, and waste water is filtered so it can be later used for local agriculture.
The Serora striped sock in sage, copper and denim blue is £22 and the Selina sock in sage and gold is £18.
UK footwear size 4-7.
Designed in collaboration with Kate Jones knitwear, this deep blue soft lambswool scarf is a timeless classic that works perfectly with my old favourites, denim and khaki.
The stripe pattern on the Coastline scarf is partly inspired by Sashiko, the traditional Japanese method of repairing and reinforcing clothing by hand, using a simple running stitch.
Scarf dimensions are approximately 186cm ( 73 inches ) long and 30cm ( 12 inches) wide.
The lambswool is spun and dyed in Yorkshire at a family-run mill established in 1766.
I often refer to myself as Old School, in terms of style, not attitude, and always see this as a positive. This new sweatshirt design features varsity-style lettering on a beautiful grey background. As the Urban Dictionary definition of Old School says, 'Anything that is from an earlier era and looked upon with high regard or respect.' And that includes you. It has an oversized fit, raglan sleeves and an old-school athletic vibe. It's made from 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.
Designed in collaboration with Harry Duley, these mid-rise pants sit just below the belly button, are shaped to fit and have a low leg with a signature crossover finish. The fabric used is 46% organic cotton, 46% bamboo viscose, 8% Elastane. The high stretch content helps to keep the shape and the knickers are lovely and soft and durable. The fabric is sourced from a UK supplier who monitors supply chains, standards and certifications. Knitted and dyed in Turkey, it is GOTS certified.
One single pair of premium mid-rise pants is £22
Three pack of premium mid-rise pants (in black, grey marl and pink) is £56
Designed in collaboration with Laslett England, a lovely striped silk scarf named 'Seaside Vintage' designed in Hastings and made in the UK. The style is based on a 1920’s vintage scarf and cut on the bias, so it has a beautiful fluidity and drape. The colourful stripe is incredibly versatile, and perfect for whooping up your not-so-basics. Crafted from silk satin chiffon it is finished with finely rolled hand-stitched edges. It will arrive in a bespoke gift box which makes a beautiful gift for yourself or a loved one.
