A Wommelsdorff sweater is enticing because of its simplicity – designer Anne Schramm prides the label on presenting uncomplicated, but exquisite cashmere made for the everyday wardrobe.
Her team’s use of classic crochet techniques creates a plush network of textures that can only be found within the handmade.
There is certainly a nostalgia component to this work – a history of knit traditions is spun into each perfect stitch.
We found a kindred soul in the designs of Nanna Pause – a Sicilian atelier specializing in felted fabrics such as baby alpaca.
A shared taste for the simplicity of patient making abounds within her collection – a selection of soft jackets that are an excellent choice for layering over Wommelsdorff and other well-considered knits.
Each piece is made of a double-faced fabric in subtle, earthy tones.
Designers prioritizing the value and beauty of the handmade remind us to take a moment and appreciate the things that truly matter – dedication, a bond with the earth and celebrating the craftspeople who connect everything.
The world is complicated enough as is – why should dressing make it any more so?
