We left Root5 HQ in search of winter coats...an adventure to that infamous Central London shopping street reserved only for the hardiest folk. On, the first late-night shopping Thursday of the season.
Forget boring woollen coats. Look what we found below. Our favourite '10 Swedish Designers' or '10-Gruppen' brand. Root5 discovered them whilst sheltering from the rain in Götgatan on a whirlwind Stockholm trip earlier this year. This is a collaboration with that other staple of quality Japanese basics, Uniqlo.
Bold, Graphic, Geometric prints in Tees, Tote Bags & Scarves. Designed by three of the original founding designers, Birgitta Hahn, Tom Hedqvist and Ingela Håkansson.
I obviously couldn't leave this scarf behind...! So now you've seen John Lewis' Bear & The Hare, and you're considering that shopping trip (although I'd recommend waiting for the Root5 Winter Pop-Up!) Go and check out some seriously good design on the high street. JP
