Accessory Alert: Electronic Sheep

As we shift our gears into a New Year, the colder days ahead will see us reaching for some winter woollies, usually in a darker, coloured palette.

However, Electronic Sheep may change your mind with their knitwear collection, which, following their success at London Fashion Week, has expanded their line throughout the UK, Europe and Asia.

The London-Dublin based label which specializes in colourful wool caps and scarves, already has a cult following amongst European tastemakers and will keep you warm while adding an urban edge to your look.

The huge, patterned scarves are all 100% wool,  machine washable and triangular in shape; think Yasser Arafat’s headscarf funked up!

With other Irish designers such as Merle O’Grady and Cora Lei flying the accessories flag in the UK, it’s also been a stellar time for Electronic Sheep.  

Exciting developments for the label last year included  a collaboration with the Royal College of Art graduate Lucy Fine’s label ‘Save our Souls’ which re-uses Electronic Sheep knitwear to create  patchwork textiles.

They also took part London ‘Wool Week’ (alongside model Lily Cole’s “The North Circular” label) founded by the Prince of Wales to promote the use of wool.

Electronic Sheep is available in Ireland at A New Space, 6 Chatham Street, Dublin 2 and Bow Boutique, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Dublin 2.  Prices range from €47.50 to €99.

P.S If you need some inspiration on different ways to wear a scarf, see our Ask the Stylist tips.
