After finding yet another cashmere fall victim to a moth attack, frustration sparked an idea in Amanda’s mind… an idea that would evolve to surround and inspire our Winter 18 collection.
Not wanting to part ways with an old favourite garment, Amanda’s humorous take on her own irritation of moth holes created the opportunity to elevate rather than relegate.
Introducing...The Midnight Moth
To compliment the comedic element, a strong sense of irony lays underneath the beautifully embellished appliques in elevating a ruined garment with not only something beautiful, but in fact the cause of the deterioration in the first place.

Fuelling an entire collection, the midnight moth can be seen worked into cashmere tops, jumpers and bomber jackets available in our Winter collection now available online and in our flagship store at 18 Albemarle Street Mayfair.
You can also do-it-yourself and Wakeley-fy your wardrobe by adding a few of our intricate moths to your own pieces; from your vintage trench to a treasured hand-me-down, the price of each moth includes application* onto whatever piece you desire.
*Pop into our flagship store where application is complimentary. Bring in any garment you wish and we’d be happy to apply your midnight moth.
