WIN: Owl Neck Sweater by Wingate Prints.

August 9, 2010
Another week, another opportunity for one of you to bag a sartorial pick-me-up to squash the Monday morning blues. I had mentioned I’d be divvying up blogger loot and I’m not to go back on his word unless, of course, Burberry somehow thought it might be a genius idea to gift me a shearling jacket for the season ahead – such a scenario could call for a new set of rules…
I digress. Shoreditch-based print studio, Wingate Prints, were kind enough to donate the latest giveaway. Founded by Norwich Textiles grad Sam Wingate (whose designs were chosen for the signature design to be seen in DKNY’s flagship Bond Street store), the brand consists of everything from printed cushions (think prints of your fave watering holes down East, including The George and Dragon and The Royal Oak) and napkins, to aprons, wallpaper, tees, and sweats. As well as being stocked in several London-based boutiques, Sam transforms his cosy studio into a retail space every weekend, or as he succinctly puts it, “In the back room I print it, in the front room I sell it”. No outsourcing bulls**t here, then.
Abounding with architectural references and bold splashes of colour, the Wingate designs have just the right amount of quirk without bordering on cliché kitsch territory. But enough chatter – here’s what’s up for grabs…
