Bella Freud x The School Of Life

05.11.2014 | Culture , Fashion | BY:

Bella Freud has collaborated with The School of Life to create a collaboration centred around the world’s most iconic thinkers. Together they introduce ‘The Philosopher’s Jumper’.

Looking back through time, into the wardrobes of intellectual heroes as diverse as Herbert Marcuse, Iris Murdoch, Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, they found one item in common – the black jumper.“The black jumper is the ideal suit of armour to contain you while allowing you to free your thoughts,” states Bella Freud. “For all its simplicity there is nothing more alluring than a perfect jumper in black merino wool.”

The Philosopher’s Jumper is available now from

Bella Freud: Pre-Spring 2014 Collection

10.02.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Bella Freud, the queen of punk knitwear launched her eponymous label in the 90s, and has held a cult status among the cool crowd ever since. The pre-spring line, Close To My Heart is no different, featuring girl crush Adwoa Aboah. For this collection Bella draws from her love of film noir, 70s reggae album covers, graffiti and images of her mother as a 1950’s teenager.

The new word jumpers of the season include: Hey, Psychoanalysis and Power, with the range also consisting of the Lion Star Tee, the instant hit Lion Stripe Jumper and the Distressed Dog Tee (a la the Bella Freud logo). These tees and fine wool sweaters come in a palette of Gitane Blue, Dirty Pink, Grasshopper Green, Grey Marl and of course the classic BF Black and White.

‘The reason for making anything, from a garment to a film, is because it excites me and because I like it’ – Bella Freud.
