You've heard, several times, about my love for Thought Clothing.
The brand, tucked away in a stunning neighborhood in Inner London but boasting a growing world-wide customer base, is aptly named for their true Thoughtfulness in each and every aspect of their brand, from where they source their fabrics, to how they design their patterns, to the way they interact with influencers and customers. I've partnered with them several times over the past year and a half, and each time, I'm blown away by the consistent quality and beauty of their pieces.
This collaboration, though, is extra special because, during my wonderful but brief stint in the U.K. I was able to stop by Thought's headquarters, meet some of their team, and tour their (insanely gorgeous) showroom. My brother Jess (more aptly known during this trip as my Instagram Brother) came along with me and snapped some beautiful photos of the showroom and Hannah and I - because, I already know he's going to ask where his photo credit is. ;)
Picture Instagram heaven - plants galore, gorgeous clothes organized by color and pattern displayed throughout the room, statement walls to add depth, a welcoming meeting table in the center, and lots and lots of sunlight. This is Thought's showroom - the space where they shoot many of their product photos, hold meetings, and yes, host overly excited bloggers for an afternoon.
I got a sneak peek of the FW18 collection, full of jewel tones, warmth, and of course, original prints designed in-house. One of my favorite things about Thought is their incredible approach to pattern and prints - they draw from nature, poetry, art, and vintage design and create one of a kind prints in the very same building that their showroom is in.
This post is technically in promotion of their current SS18 line, but trust me when I say that their Fall/Winter line is quite possibly my favorite yet. I have my list of pieces I'm planning to buy when it's released, don't worry.
But, for now, there's no shortage of beauty in their current line, three pieces of which, I've had since February and have worn them all many, many times. Versatility (as always) and seasonlessness were two of my main goals when selecting the pieces to showcase in this post (and wear in my real life) and each piece went above and beyond in both categories.
First up, the Blake Trousers.
With a wide leg and a paper bag waist, these pants feature one of the most classic cuts of all time, flattering on all shapes and sizes. They're made of a modal/bamboo blend, making them wonderfully soft and breezy. I galavanted across the U.K. in them and, fittingly, wore them to the Thought showroom for our meeting.
Easy, comfortable, perfect for travel.
Piece #2: The Helina Pompom Detail Vest
This tank, a hemp/organic cotton blend, is the perfect basic piece to wear all Spring and Summer. The pompom detail adds flair without going overboard and the shape is perfect for layering or tucking in.
(Pro tip: I chose the tank in white, and in case this helps with decision making, I'm wearing a red bra underneath without a cami and it's not see through at all ;)
Versatile, durable, and ideal for layering.
Piece #3: Landor Knit Cardigan
A cotton/wool blend, this cardigan comes in several colors and is soft and stretchy - perfect to throw over a tee or a shirt dress. I chose "sunflower" for a fun pop of color in my mostly neutral wardrobe, and love wearing it over a white tee or my black Sotela jumpsuit. The cardigan has a single button at the top, for a unique option for added coverage.
Time and time again, Thought lives up to their name, and after the opportunity to meet their founder, see behind their doors, and get a glimpse into the process behind their collections only makes me love them more.
Their SS18 line is full of unique, sustainable, one of a kind pieces for both men and women - be sure to shop their new arrivals for any gaps you need to fill in your closet. And, if you're even in Islington, be sure to look up their showroom ;)
