Needle & Thread London is hands down one of my favourite brands. Launched in April 2013 with a collection of beautiful dresses, the label has grown leaps and bounds and now includes ‘casual wear’ such as this stunning floral embroidered hoody. As a stylist I love my hoodies but I have never worn one as striking and utterly feminine as this. There is something so magical about embroidery. It is opulent and intricate, and makes any garment appear to have come to life. This particular piece is bursting with colours with its cross-stitch design – and the black broderie anglaise trim creates an elegant finishing touch. I could quite easily wear this every day…


There’s also a little treat on the back with subtle beading that reads ‘Love in the midst’. 




This was so much fun to shoot. Embroidery is here to stay so make it a wardrobe staple, whether on a gown, a bag or a hoody. Preferably the hoody!

Location: Coworth Park, Ascot.

Needle & Thread is available at, in store at Harrods and online at NET-A-PORTER.
