Upon opening the Album di Famiglia Fall Collection, we felt a rush of traveled nostalgia – the kind that comes from waking before the sun rises, walking through wild grasses laced with dew, or thumbing through an heirloom book in a darkened library. Layers of crumply cotton velvet and nubby handknit sweaters feel like a postcard mailed with love from a far off place, or a far off time – particularly, the rolling hills of Saksun, a remote village tucked in the Faroe Islands.
After years of living in the midst of fashion creativity in Paris, designers Terry-Ann Frencken and Nathalie Berger design knits intended to meet the needs of mountain living – with a wink to the seductive feel of cashmere on the (naked) body. From Rick Owens to Schönenberger, the duo have cut their teeth at houses renowned for luxury on the edge. Today, their portmanteau label, Frenckenberger combines their deep industry expertise with a free-spirited approach to dressing.
Avant Toi’s creativity is not to be understated – its kaleidoscope of color is as core to the brand as its sumptuous textiles. Much like Monet’s brush, designer Mirko Ghighone imparts a sense of naturalistic artistry into his work – both metaphorically and literally so, as the dyes are hand-painted, daubed and misted across the pieces. And, like Monet, Mirko and his team of artists draw upon the wonders of the natural world for inspiration.
