the St. francis sweater in black mohair and silk.  black is always cool.  this same style will be available in fuchsia very soon.  they remind me of the beautiful sweaters the sex pistols wore.

the Gia in brown merino wool, mohair and silk.  she twisted 2 shades together to create the heathered effect.  this one’s my favorite (for the moment).

the Gia in cream baby alpaca.  the model’s favorite!  the chunkiest of all, warm and impossibly soft.

the knitwear collection is here and i’m happy we went ahead with this project.  it came about when i asked a friend in town who has a yarn and fabrics shop if she knew anyone interested in knitting some sweaters for me.  little did i know she‘s a big knitting nerd.  for the past year she’s been using a vintage knitting machine (which baffle me).   her attention to detail is wonderful.  crocheting the seams together gives the sweater a really fine finish inside.  she worked out all the details i threw at her and was incredibly patient with me.   the sweaters will be in a permanent knitwear collection and from time to time we’ll introduce something wonderful and new.
