Introducing the debut range from new womenswear label 88&Half, bringing you lux sheepskin wardrobe essentials and beautiful bespoke knitwear. This stunning first collection comprises of chic wearable winter staples as well as statement pieces for women of all ages.
88&Half is the brainchild of sisters Olivia and Grace Williams. Following the resounding success of her final show at London Graduate Fashion Week, Olivia felt inspired to create her own label. The design and production is driven by Olivia, whilst her sister Grace manages the financial aspects of the company.
88&Half prides itself on use of quality materials, innovative design and exceptional craftsmanship. This season’s collection was inspired by texture, in particular matt versus shine, including high shine leather, croc and matt sheepskin. Highlights include the classic Shanghai Biker Jacket, a black sheepskin lined jacket with zip detailing. The Croc Insert Trouser, a sexy fitted trouser with black croc detailing and the Snoof, a versatile fur neck snoof that is guaranteed to keep you warm and stylish throughout the winter period.
88&Half specialise in their creative and unique use of sheepskin materials and yarns. Their fresh and contemporary approach to design as well as the variation of skins used in the pieces distinguishes 88&Half from the rest. 88&Half are proud of their UK heritage and ensure that all their sheepskin pieces are designed and made in England. The sheepskin they use is a bi-product of the meat industry, so they can guarantee that their products have no connections with killing animals for their skin.

88&Half will be stocked at selected boutiques throughout the UK. Prices start from £65.
