Nordic style knitwear has made a spectacular comeback this year after years in fashion wilderness.
Our Chunky Retro Napapijri Knitwear evokes memories of early ski trips, with lovely bold Nordic patterns in luxury wool mixes. Mix these snowflake designs with a pair of jeans and a chunky Sorel Joan of Artic Boot for a great on trend look.
We also have a brilliant range of Nordic inspired accessories ideal as stocking fillers. From Trapper Style Barts Hats, and Slouchy Barts Slipper Socks, to Fleece Hunter Welly Liners, to Superdry Slipper Socks & Chunky Double Zip Superdry knitwear.
Yes, its Nordic Nostalgia time: Ski Chalets, Log Fires, Gluvine, Reindeer........

We have an Exclusive! Turners Marlow is the only UK Stockist of Colmar Womens Original Down Jackets & Colmar Womens Ski Wear.
We are so excited about this range because there has been very little new ski product coming through over the last few years and Colmar certainly fills the gap and how! It is sporty and glamorous, luxurious and technical. I have never seen a 20,000 mm waterproof jacket look this good.
Colmar is a heritage Italian Ski Wear Brand and bizarely is sponsoring the British Ski team this year. When we were at the Munich Ski Show in February, we were looking out for something different. The Colmar stand was packed with European Buyers and had a real buzz about it. It was just what we had been looking for.
We are hoping to get some product placement for the range and Lynda is working on this at the moment. Any tips would be most welcome!
Yes, Colmar, one to watch!
David, Imogen & I are watching The BBC’s Frozen Planet with awe and delight. We find the Penguins so amusing and the photography amazing!
An added bonus for our family was to spot Sir David Attenborough wearing one of our Canada Goose Expedition Parker jackets. In fact Canada Goose seems to be the brand of choice for most of the team.
Canada Goose has a great heritage, manufacturing outerwear in Canada for over 50 years. It is worn in the South Pole research facilities and the Canadian High Arctic as well as the city streets of New York, Tokyo and London. Its reputation for quality, functionality and style is second to none.
Sadly, Fakes in the recession are becoming more and more of a problem, with online sites offering ridiculously low prices. However, if you look at these online discount sites carefully, it is obvious that the product is fake and at these market stall prices the product will be non-functional.
Often, the language has subtle translation issues,returns are offered but there is no returns address on site. I have even seen a site called e-canadagoose.com stating it can only process one payment a day. This would certainly ring alarm bells in my head!
Thankfully, if you go to www.Canada-Goose.com/Counterfeiting at the bottom of a page there is a long list of Counterfeit Website sellers. You will also see Turners Marlow listed as an Authorised Canada Goose UK Stockist.
Did you see the Penguin pinching stones from a fellow Penguin for his nest? Hilarious!
