Urban Buzz launched it’s first collection for Autumn Winter 2007 with the aim of appealing to young women who want a wardrobe that combines excellent style and design with comfort and ethics.

I’ll admit that I hadn’t heard of it until swedish designer Annette Lennerup contacted me a couple of weeks ago suggesting a collaboration. The collections offer clean lines with cute quirky details using mostly ethical and organic materials. So right up my street!

After a quick browse round the wesbite we agreed that Annette would send me the Berlin Knit top, so I could see the quality for myself, and then we’d offer Retro Chick readers the chance to win their very own! You can’t beat updating your winter wardrobe for free, surely?

I picked my jumper up from the sorting office on Saturday morning, and I pretty much haven’t stopped wearing it since.


Jumper - Urban Buzz
Skirt & Belt - Vintage
Hairband - Topshop

The seams were nicely finished, the organic cotton rib knit felt thick and good quality and I really liked the slash neckline. Plus the tags were safety pinned on, which for some reason I really like when I buy clothes. I know, I’m a freak!


It’s a perfect addition to my wardobe actually. I belted it in and wore it over a floral skirt, and rib tights, making the florals work perfectly in the chilly weather. Today I am wearing it unbelted with jeans, and it works just as well.

I love the little thumb holes in the top, I have a tendency to pull my jumpers down over my hands anyway so it’s nice to have offical justification to wear it like that  without getting told off for stretching my clothes out, and it’s a cute and cosy detail.
