&Daughter is a slow knitwear brand offering considered clothing for modern lifestyles. Sustainability and provenance guide its central purpose, praising craft, permanence and beauty through an offering of quality objects that never fall out of favour.
Founded in London in 2013 by Buffy Reid and her father, Columba, &Daughter creates a capsule of iconic knitwear pieces. After several years on the publicity team for Gap, Reid decided to switch gears and launch a knitwear label with her father, who used to be a sales director wholesaling tweed and cashmere to department stores like Browns in the ‘80s.
The duo sought eclectic inspiration from Steve McQueen, Kate Moss and Marilyn Monroe, but at the end of the day it came down to creating the perfect vintage-inspired Aran knit with soft but durable yarn, which was difficult to locate in the market. Many of the factories they work with are family-owned and based in the UK & Ireland.
