I love what this label does. The clothing doesn’t come cheap, but the Blondie retro knitwear range at Hades is amazing.
You might recall The Cure knitwear and the David Bowie range from a while back. Collections are limited editions and tend to come and go, so if you see something you like, it’s worth moving quickly as it rarely comes back.
With this collection, it’s slightly different. Yes, the sweaters are here, as you would expect. But also, some rather large scarves and a lovely knitted shopper too. Of course, none of that matters if you don’t have a thing for Blondie. But as a recent BBC documentary showed, they were the biggest band in Britain for a while, so you can imagine there’s a good market for this.
And even if you aren’t a big fan, it does look amazing. This is knitwear to get you noticed.
Some of the collection is pictured here, which is all officially licensed and handcrafted in Scotland from 100% lambswool. As for pricing, sweaters are around £225, scarves at £110 and that nifty bag is £150. Not cheap at all, but great quality and made to get seen.
