Johnstons of Elgin Create Cashmere Collection for Vivienne Westwood

Manufacturing in Elgin, Scotland since 1797, with a Royal Warrant to The Prince of Wales, the only mill in Scotland to take cashmere from fibre to fabric, it’s fair to say Johnstons know a thing or two about knitwear. Here they lend their skills to Vivienne Westwood for a range of clothing and accessories “styles which marry the designer’s singular vision with the quality and craftsmanship which only decades, and in some cases centuries, of history can bring to a product.” A pair of jogging bottoms, a sweater, a cardigan and two scarves in tartan and argyle, handmade and embroidered with a Scottish bumble bee and graffiti orb. More in our gallery.
