London Undercover, despite only launching last month, have garnered a large following for their luxury hats, scarves and umbrellas. Stocked in Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Liberty, the brand is already proving very popular in the US and Japan.

After previously working with Basso & Brook and Manolo Blahnik, this latest venture features a limited edition collaboration with Michael Williams' A Continuous Lean, and this double-act have produced two beautiful English Gentleman's scarves.
The featured scarf is a traditional Black Watch plaid scarf, made from the softest two-ply cashmere and with a very functional yet elegant reversible side. Made in England, this limited-edition Black Watch scarf retails for £165 at Selfridges and is sure to compliment any of this seasons "It" coats; camel, aviator or time-honoured mac.
The second scarf in the collection is more traditional and subdued than the first. Created from the best English cashmere, each scarf has been combed by hand to ensure the softest feel possible. Colours vary from soft shades of brown with hints of khaki green to plain Winter block-colours. Available for £135 from Selfridges, this is a quality investment buy.
As mentioned above this London Undercover and ACL collaboration is available at Selfridges, The Garbstore and online at londonundercover.co.uk. Remember that this is a limited collection and stocks are sure to fly off the shelves!
