Despite their reputation for avant garde styling and exceptional cashmere, Avant Toi’s true strength lies in their experimentations with color.
Their palette takes many forms, and is often inspired by creative travels around the world.
Based on both the method of application and the layering of under-dyes in the garment, Avant Toi’s colors stretch across the visual spectrum to create their gallery of unmatched knitwear.
Forest & Moss
Perhaps their most impactful hue, Avant Toi’s Forest spans from a warm teal color – similar to the waters of Sardinia – to a deep and verdant green plucked straight from the Amazon rainforest.
Sprayed over raw cashmere with no under-dye, the undulating hue speaks of a hazy fog that weaves through the Brazilian tropics.
Lake & Ocean
The enigmatic Lake blue appears as both a deep lapis color reminiscent of the Atlantic coast along County Kerry, Ireland, and the frothy glaciers of Godafoss, Iceland.
When sponged over Boreal grey in their Stola Scarf, we see a breath of clouds over Lake Como at midnight.
Orchid & Anemone
In pink and purple, Avant Toi ranges from a sweet Orchid color, inspired by the flora that dots the South American Andes, to a dusky Rhubarb that echoes the plant that shares its name.
In their bright Anemone, we see both a spray of windflowers growing in an Umbrian meadow and a forest of blooming coral along the seafloor.
Corten & Carruba
For a directly earthy offering, Avant Toi’s rich browns range from the tangy caramel hues of Corten, a mimic of weathered steel architecture across Scotland, to the warm plush of Cantharellus inspired by the glossy mushroom harvests of the Tillamook Forest.
