Winser London at the Althorp Literary Festival

This month we joined Harpers Bazaar and Christie’s at the Althorp Literary Festival. We popped-up in a beautiful white marquee at Althorp House for the four day event and showcased our collection to the literati. The combination of one of England’s finest stately homes and some of our best authors was just too good to miss.

The festival is set in the house and gardens of Althorp the stunning Northamptonshire home of Earl Spencer.
It is an interesting conundrum: what to wear at an outdoor event in the countryside during the English summertime.
It can be sunny, rainy and windy in a single day. Here’s how the Winser London team at Althorp stepped out in style:

Kim: Winser London slinky pull-on tapered-leg trousers and silk shirt with a Gossamer cashmere wrap.

Jayne: Winser London cropped slim-leg trousers, with a silk and knit top and silk-knit hoody layer.

Pat: Katherine Culottes in ivory with a simple T-shirt and boyfriend-jumper layer.

All: A nice brolly and factor 50!

The holiday season is upon us and inspired by the festival we have picked a few great reads that are good travel companions:

The Age of Innocence
by Edith Wharton,

The Killers of the King
by Charles Spencer –

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
By David Sedaris

The Kite Runner
