Chinti & Parker co-founders, Anna Singh and Rachael Wood, discuss the new-season collection.
Why are these your favourite outfits from the AW19 collection?

Rachael: Both the floral dress and the colour-block shirt dress (see below) are great assets to your wardrobe because they’re the sort of pieces that will see you through from day to night.

Anna: I’d wear this dress any time, anywhere. It’s quite a bold choice for me but I was drawn to the colours and the stripes which are very flattering. I love the tracksuit although I’m not brave enough to style it up for work…yet! For now, I’ll be wearing it at the weekends with a pair of Converse.
How would you describe the mood of the AW19 collection?

Rachael: It’s our most sophisticated collection to date. It showcases a romantic side that might not usually be expected from us but it's punctuated with extreme colour blocking that is identifiably Chinti & Parker.

Anna: This collection marks a new, elevated direction for Chinti & Parker with tailoring and silks featuring prominently. Of course, bold colours also take centre stage.

Who do you imagine wearing it?

Rachael: I’d love to see some female artists wearing the collection bearing in mind it has been inspired by Charleston House.

Anna: I like to think there’s something in the collection for everyone. We always love seeing how our customers and friends of the brand put their own unique stamp on our pieces.
Aside from your chosen looks, which other hero items should customers look out for?

Rachael: The ‘Luxury’ sweater is dreamy. It’s a lot of cashmere in one sweater – nearly one and a half goat’s worth of annual cashmere yield, in fact! I also love all the silk polka dot dresses teamed with the co-ordinating polka dot sweaters.

Anna: There are so many great pieces. I particularly love the striped ribbed-knit cashmere sweater and skirt co-ord and the 'Eccentric' dress and cardigan if you’re feeling bold.
