  • Helena Bonham Carter is revisiting her Suffragette role for a very good cause. The actress has teamed up with Scottish cashmere brand Brora to create a limited edition capsule collection which will benefit Save the Children.

    To celebrate the centenary of the charity, together Brora Founder & Creative Director Victoria Stapleton invited three women, Helena Bonham Carter, Laura Bailey and Erin O’Connor to create pieces of knitwear that most represented their personal style.

    Each collection consists of six items, but my favourite has to be this long scarf designed by Helena, bearing the moniker ‘Phenomenal Woman’, in the symbolic purple and green tones of the suffragette movement, though it also comes in pink and white. It also looks so cosy.


    Helena said, ‘I have lived in Brora for years so jumped at the opportunity to put together my dream cashmere, thrilled by the idea that each purchase will help a distressed child somewhere in the world. It’s a double gift.’

    Laura Bailey’s collection includes an oversized Bardot style knit, whilst Erin has designed an Aran jumper using traditional knitting techniques.

    The collection is on sale now, and 10% of all sales will go to Save the Children, who aims to help children build a better future.
