Vogue suggested one should ‘Fast-Track Chinti and Parker to wardrobe-staple status’, and here at Trilogy we agree! Since conception, the brand has had a loyal following in the press and with celebrities such as Thandie Newton, Trudie Styler, Laura Bailey and Claudia Schiffer.
After having a very fruitful meeting with the delightful Anna Singh, founder of the must-have cashmere & jersey brand, we are super excited about our Trilogy exclusive SS11 collection. With a colour palette of oatmeal & coral, cornflower blue, navy & grey, in the most luxurious open weave cashmere and of course with their signature cute & quirky detailing – It is bound to be even bigger than the huge success of AW10!
I asked Anna a few questions about the brand…
What inspires you?
Parisien style for its chicness meets Japanese style for its clever detailing and quirky elements.
Who are your current style icons?
Alexa Chung, Thandie Newton, Laura Bailey.
What 3 items of clothing can’t you live without?
Current Elliot Chinios, Chinti and Parker Standard vest in taupe, One pocket sweater in navy.
What is your ultimate style tip?
Layering to create that ‘cool city look’which is very current. Start off with a cami vest and layer wth something loose and casual over the top like a boyfriend style vest – loose and sexy.
Sum up the collection in 3 words:
Super soft, luxurious, clever basics.
Why do you think ethical fashion is so important now?
It should become the norm rather than the unexpected, everyone needs to try and do their bit.. there is no need to compromise on the style element any more.
What can we expect to see from Chinti & Parker in the future?
A very exciting SS11 range, wth new even softer fabrics, maxi dresses, cashmere and bamboo knitwear and lots more stripes!
