Cara Delevingne in her Chinti and Parker 'C' jumper and the brand's design inspiration
Being the model-of-pretty-much-every-moment-right-now, we can’t blame Cara Delevingne for loving, and often wearing, fashion products related to herself. If we were super-adored, we too would wear endless namesake or photo-plastered t-shirts.
Think back to the many times she posed up during fashion week to show off her ‘Queen Delevingne’ tee by Black Score in collaboration with Grazia. Trillions, right? So we weren’t surprised to find that the bushy-browed wonder had discovered the £295 cashmere alphabet jumpers from one of our favourite Brit brands, Chinti and Parker. Naturally, Miss D went for the C-emblazoned navy knit, and chose to wear it to Nice airport with her ‘wifey’ Rita Ora.
“The letter sweater is the Chinti take on varsity cool. We all adore that US college feel and we had fun giving the jumpers a Chinti and Parker twist by supersizing the letters and giving them a graphic look,” explained the label’s founding duo, cousins Anna Singh and Rachael Wood.
Michelle Obama, Olivia Palermo and Kate Moss also reportedly own the alphabet knits AND for this Easter weekend only everything on the Chinti site has 20% off. So it’s high time you cosied – and swotted – up. If you aren’t familiar with the brand already here’s a brief lowdown: Anna and Rachael kicked it off in 2009 with a range of ethically made t-shirts. Those were soon snapped up by major stockists and the entire collection has now expanded to include cashmere knits, flirty summer dresses, and track pants, blouses… all with the duo’s signature kooky take on classic prints like Breton stripes or polkadots, patch pockets and keyhole fastenings. So, what’s your initial? And will you get to them before us? This deserves some online elbowing…
