London based artist Stuart Semple has collaborated with Aubin & Wills to create a limited edition unisex cardigan, the ‘Huntfield’.
The cardigan was created as an ode to Stuart’s Grandfather who he use to spend time gardening with a child.
The ‘Huntfield’ cardigan is a limited run of 100 pieces and is the perfect cosy Autumn knit. Available for £165 from selected Aubin & Wills stores from November, it encapsulates Stuart’s childhood memories and comes with a packet of seeds and a card label with a signed drawing by the artist.
Designed for both men and woman in a slouchy oversized fit, the piece has deep pockets where Stuart’s Grandfather stored his supply of tissues.
According to Semple “I wanted to create this piece in memory of my Grandfather, and was inspired by a gardening cardigan that he use to wear. We used to spend many a rainy afternoon together in the garden shed planting runner beans and making all sorts of wonderful things, from birdhouses to chess sets and magic tricks. I still to this daywear one of the blue football buttons from this very cardigan on a string around my neck.”
