s/s 2012 new york: m.patmos.

#NYFW collections Uncategorized

one of my favorite knitwear lines was lutz & patmos. it was easy cashmere and other knit pieces that were high on quality and low on trends. the line was also famous for its celebrity collaborations with kirsten dunst, sofia coppola, carine roitfeld, and more. in 2010, the duo went their separate ways but fans didn’t have to wait long for a resurrection of sorts. marcia patmos started m. patmos later that year, and this was my first time seeing the line in person.

not only is patmos continuing making gorgeous knitwear, she is focusing on high-tech, zero-waste materials like openworked cotton. also in her arsenal are female knitting collectives from nepal and bolivia using repurposed yarns. i loved how relaxed yet elegant all the pieces were, from the open knit sweaters and easy slip dresses to the wide leg trousers and shantung shorts. these are the kind of pieces that you’ll have in your wardrobe forever and can transition easily from season to season.
