SANDS & HALL - TWEED WITH A LUXURY TWIST

It's with great delight that we warmly welcome the brand new cape collection from independent UK fashion label Sands & Hall. We are so happy to have been chosen as the only stockist in Scotland to showcase it's 'to die for' 100% Harris Tweed capes.

Established in Ireland in 2015 by new parents Sara and David Hall, this venture began life on Facebook, with some core pieces, which we stocked and sold out of at PAD last year. These classic, ready to wear capes in fine Tweed fabrics proved to be so popular, that they found their idea grew almost overnight into the sought after, ‘go to’ label. At PAD, we too had found Sara's business on Facebook and was instantly an admirer of her stylish capes and passion for vintage design.

Now with a variety of new styles and colours, and pockets added to the Original Cape design, the couple are ready (with baby number two on tow!) to grow the collection world-wide. Sands & Hall is firmly leading the ongoing trend for the cape as the new coat, and focused on creating supremely made pieces that reflect the brand's key values of luxury, versatility and timeless elegance. The capes are crafted in the highest quality 100% Virgin Wool Harris Tweed and Donegal Tweed, a fabric that retains it's luxurious look and tactile appeal for years. 

Both Sara and her husband and business partner, David, believe in the transformative quality of the garment and its ability to keep wearers warm, on-trend and well presented. 

Sara says: "We feel that capes really are the new coat. Capes are timeless and highly versatile; they are perfect for layering up all year round and offer a more unique, individual look where outer wear is concerned. This, for us, is the essence of what we are here for."

With so many fabulous styles and fabrics from the throw-over cape, fitted and belted or the original cape design, now featuring pockets, each piece can be paired with various outfits; they are designed to encourage personal style. Have a favourite leather jacket? Then team with the Throw Cape for extra warmth, pictured below in the new Harlow Rust colour way.

Love to wrap around a belt, and sculpt your own silhouette? Perfect! Pair the Fitted Cape with long Danish gloves and cosy knits to vary texture and colour - the look can be your own. Check out the divine new Bardot Blue colour way in the fitted cape - LOVE!

Having fallen for these luxury capes last season, we are absolutely smitten with the new designs, which we are sure will integrate into everyone's wardrobe and become the "best friend" garment for Autumn/Winter. Pop by our boutique in Edinburgh, view and try on the collection, or shop online. For further information please contact info@padlifestyle.com. We always love hearing from you!
