Making waves this summer - Introducing our High Summer garments

Making waves this summer - Introducing our High Summer garments

We are super excited to share the first garments and colours of our High Summer Collection 21!

Our HS Collection 21 was inspired by the British countryside - cute cottages, serene nature and escaping from city life. Our designers Layla, Lil and Sophie have been working together on this concept, researching unusual stitch techniques, experimenting with open lace work, using different weight yarns to create interesting textures and using negative space to create their designs. 

It's the first time we have released a collection of patterns to coincide with our High Summer release and it's been exciting to be out of our creative comfort zone and to push ourselves in a new design direction. We also have a new instagram account to show the design process in more detail with sketches, swatches and studio shot, check out the design action here.

It was also important for us that this collection was about breaking down boundaries and promoting the idea of our being boundary-less. We especially wanted this to come across in our photoshoot, more behind the scenes and info to come on this in a later blog! 

 

FIRST RELEASE

Simply Wave Collection

Our first set of pattern releases will be the Simply Wave collection designed by Layla. Layla fell in love with these waves stitches, she loves the light airy fabric that this stitch creates and the fun contrasts it creates with colours and yarn weights. Her initial idea for these garments were the wave stitches and then she added the shape and silhouette of the garment. Layla experimented with the juxtaposition of fluffy lace weight yarns to create this beautiful textured contrast.

There are 3 different Simply Wave patterns in the collection, a cropped sweater with 3 sleeve options, a longer sweater with long sleeves and a cami top.

Simply Wave crop pattern and kits are now available

 

We also released 16 NEW colourways to knit up our garment collection. Introducing the first five...
