Of course, cashmere is the star of the show. A cashmere sweater is a thing to treasure when you consider it takes the capra hircus goat four years to grow enough hair for one sweater while surviving temperatures between 50C in summer and -40C in winter! Then we have sweaters in breathable Merino wool, which helps keeps you a perfect temperature. Or, if you're looking for a sleeker silhouette, opt for a blend of cashmere, wool and silk, which is favoured by Fabiana Filippi. Even if you're not in the market for a new jumper, you can always spice things up with one of Altea's artful scarves.
The autumn landscape offers us the most beautiful palette to play with and we think Antoniazzi have captured the season's spirit perfectly in this mottled sweater which pairs perfectly with camel pants and Gentry Portofino's chunky biker boots.
There is a buzz in the air in autumn. New shows and theatre debut, and everyone dashes back to work. Get yourself ready with Fabiana Filippi's versatile suede bomber jacket and a pair of Izipizi glasses in autumn colours.
Cool autumn mornings spent chatting up the bar staff (or is the other way around?) at your local cafe are always great fun. Dress to impress with our embroidered Altea scarf in deep chocolate.
Business breakfasts are back on the agenda and Gentry Portofino's super slouchy sweater is the perfect look. We find breakfast meetings the most productive - that is when we aren't distracted by new friends.
Smart lunches and early evening aperitifs - autumn is full of them. You'll need a simple smart-casual outfit and what better than our classic Milan Collection navy sweater, an Altea paisley scarf and our cool, new, embossed Postina bag?
Knitwear isn't only for day time. In autumn you'll need something snug for dinner, too. We love the look of this chunky ribbed sweater from our Milan Collection paired with a luxurious silk blouse with a romantic neck-tie.
Autumn weekends are the perfect time for long walks followed by a retreat to a nice cosy pub for some oysters and whiskey. Peserico's oversized sweater and Antoniazzi's cashmere joggers are the perfect pairing.
With all the falling leaves and moody fires there's inevitably romance in the autumn air and secret assignations in hidden corners. Heartbreak may follow, but Aspesi's brushed wool shacket will keep you snug nonetheless.
Back home in the kitchen there is mountains to do for dinner. That's why we love Fabiana Filippi's silver-bead trimmed sweaters and tone-on-tone silk vests so much - they make for an instantly elegant outfit with very little fuss.
So, you see, autumn really is the best season. It's full of hard work, friends, fun and colour - like this fabulous chilli red cable-knit sweater. And, in quieter moments we can reflect how lucky we are and how lovely everyday life can be.
