The new stuff is coming in for the warmer months (which is always good news), including the Velzy 1960-style cardigans at Far Afield.
It’s a small, independent label I have featured before and one that is quite popular. Not least because it offers interesting designs, particularly when it comes to shirts and knitwear. Not everything hits the mark, with some designs a little too contemporary or out there for my tastes. But there are always a few takes on classics in the range. And that includes what you see on this page.
The Velzy design covers a few different finishes, but for me, it’s the stripes that work the best. It adds an extra retro layer to a top that already has a strong hint of the 1960s about it.
There are two variations on the striped finish, with one based around the colour green and the other with a brown background. But the design, colours and stripes aside, is much the same.
It’s a classic short-sleeve, full-button cardigan with a block colour collar, sleeves, placket and hem, seven buttons to the front and what’s described as a ‘classic’ collar.
It is made of 100 per cent organic cotton, and the fit is described as ‘true to size’. But do check the size guide before ordering, as regular varies from retailer to retailer.
Fancy one? Just in and selling for £95.
