Classic knitwear makers John Smedley have been making moves silently for a while now and this trend looks set to continue as they release their Mode collection. Already available and with next to no fanfare, the Mode collection is a collaboration with young designers with the first batch coming from Deryck Walker and Nick Thomas (whose efforts are pictured above). Smedley look set to add new designers to Mode every season and this offshoot looks like one to watch. You can look at Deryck Walker’s efforts after the jump. Many thanks to buck for the news.
