The collection FILIGRAN originated from an experiment of knitting lace of undyed natural linen. The aim was to make a summercollection, in which the characteristics of both, seemingly opposite, components were mixed in a surprising and balanced whole.
We found inspiration in FILIGRAN, the the craft of making refined ornaments of metal twisted wire.
By adding threads of colored, mercerized cotton to the linen, the texture gets a beauful shine and multi-dimensionality.
To give the tops even more refinement, some sophisticated ruffled hem was added to the neckline and armholes.
The short sleeve jumpers are partially knitted in a plain stocking stitch. It enforces the delicate lace structure, adds more color and make the jumpers more classical and practical for wearing.
The jaunty matching skirt fit to both the top as well as the short sleeve jumper. The length on the knee is timeless and modern.
