From Loewe to Hermès, Brunello Cucinelli to Connolly, a host of brands are bringing colour, print and energy to blanket design. Envelope yourselves.
Self-care is essential, and we recommend allocating time to relax, cosy up and concentrate on something that brings escape. Celebrating such a sense of release is Begg & Co, which has launched a ‘Comfort Blanket’ section on its website. This digital positive space is dedicated to calm-inducing downtime, featuring meditation and yoga tips, a gratitude journal and recipes. In celebration, we select the best blankets for snuggling up in style.
