We are proud of the relationship we have with any long-standing brands, but none are quite as special as our 20-year partnership with luxury cashmere brand Queene and Belle. A personal favourite from our Head Buyer Emma, who says, “Queene and Belle pieces stand the test of time. People always want to invest in knitwear because they know it is going to last, this brand is no different. Queene and Belle pieces are pieces for life. The brand offers a special service that means a customer who has bought from Queene and Belle can send their knitwear back if it has been torn or worn in anyway, it will be mended by hand and returned free of charge. This is a life-long service that begins immediately after purchase. There’s nothing else quite like it out there.”
A note from the designer to our Morgan Clare customer:
Queene and Belle is a luxury cashmere knitwear brand designed and owned by Angela Bell, who boasts over 30 years’ experience designing cashmere knitwear withing the fashion industry.
Queene and Belle are a unique cashmere knitwear design company whose studio is based on the family farm in the Scottish Borders. Established in 2000, the brand sells in 10 countries to luxury multi-brand boutiques and department stores, selling alongside labels such as Dries Van Noten, Jill Sander, Marni, Acne Studios to name a few.
All the Queene and Belle knitwear is lovingly produced in the world-renowned, cashmere manufacturing town of Hawick in the Borders of Scotland, and the brand is committed to its support of the local workforce there. We also use the skills of Scottish cashmere spinners, Todd and Duncan, printers, photographers, and our web designers/facilitators are based on the Isle of Skye. We are very much a British company sourcing local talent and suppliers wherever possible.
The Queene and Belle collection combines traditional manufacture with contemporary design, each piece of knitwear is created with a high attention to detail by way of silhouette, colour, and graphic intarsia. Queene and Belle cashmere is cool, current yet timeless, an investment piece which will not date. Iconic pieces like the American style sweatshirt and classic Boy/Grandpa cardigan are perennial shapes which are updated with new intarsia or colour work each season.
Queene and Belle cashmere sells to women of every age, they are women who have a strong personal style and want to invest in niche brands with great credentials and modern sustainable values. Queene and Belle make to order and only produce what they sell so each piece of cashmere is coveted and loved.
Supporting brands with values that Morgan Clare shares a natural affinity is incredibly important to us. Queene and Belle has been a firm favourite with both our customers and our team members for almost 20 years. Not only because of the quality of their product, but (perhaps even more so) because of the morals and spirit of the brand at its core.
