GEOLOGICAL EXPLORATION


INSPIRATION

AW25|26 is an exploration into Scotland’s geographical past both at home and further afield, creating a new visual direction for Todd & Duncan, wrapping the collection in our heritage as the Iconic Cashmere spinner.

INFLUENCES – We followed our creative antennae this season, picking up influences on the way from small rock samples inspired by Scotland’s geological history, whilst casting our eye over two artists Zarina Hasmi and Per Adolfsen. Zarina’s varied and thought provoking paperworks inspire the less-is-more ethos with repeat motifs and patterns to the fore. Similarly Per’s work is about observing and recording the natural world, using the simplest tool to create elaborate colour stories with pencil markings. It is this mark-making that T&D pick up on and interpret through knit and colour.

COLOUR – is where we communicate this seasons energy, and it has lead us through various fissures, culminating in a rare collection of Earth Tones presented for AW25|26. Alongside these are the top-up palette of influential cashmere colours, all updated and re-imagined throughout the collection, for our keen followers looking out for the latest interpretations.

TEXTURES – With a tight tonal palette holding the collection together, we looked up-close at mark-making techniques to develop unique tuck, plain & pearl knit stitches, working across counts and gauges. Swatches are shown in one colour to let the yarns shine, but each structure can move with ease into two-colour patterns, or into intarsias & jacquards to pick up this season’s graphical elements.



WHAT TO WATCH…


New – CASHMERE | EARTH TONES

A unique collection of Earth Tone colours inspired by small rock samples collected and studied in detail, create this 1st edition of beautifully crafted Cashmere melanges. These colours masterfully combine an understated luxury, whilst creating great visual intrigue with close colours blended together, to capture subtle tone-on-tone harmonies that are a truly immersive experience.



New – FORAGER

This exciting new yarn sits in our Superfine Lamb’s Wool collection. An unexpected synergy created between Superfine Lamb’s Wool and linen twisted together, makes Forager an intriguing proposition to work with. The subtle vibrancy of the linen gives tonal interest to the softer aspects of the Lamb’s Wool. These two very different fibres really look at home together and work beautifully on the 8ndle.

This season we focus on three, all the same weight to knit on 8ndle, each delivering variety through fibre composition.
