IDEAS INSPIRATION ACCESSORIES WEBSITES EVENTS STUFF WE LOVE LOWIE We love London brand Lowie (and not just because of celeb fans like Lily Cole and Fearne Cotton). They make everything as ethically as possible and their designs are super-lovely too. Lowie’s AW15 collection is inspired by trendy Nordics, with matchy-matchy checks, Scandi-like knitwear and embroideries with a nod to Peru. There are 70s-style ‘lady skirts’, roll neck sweaters and cashmere dresses, too. Winter chill?

From £22.50. www.themakersatelier.com PLAYFUL SEWING KITS! Mini makers will love…
