It’s raining in LA today which somehow makes me happy. I like the changes in the weather. It must be that I spent the first half of my life in forever summer-lands of Venice Beach, Houston and South Florida. Memories are all blurred together with no way of knowing when something happened other than if I was in school or not.
Anyways, my point is that it is raining and that makes me want to get into a cozy knit. I visited the FW12 preview of the Italian label Hache and wanted to keep all of the super soft sweaters to wear and don a spotted fedora while eating bread drenched in olive oil sitting by a fireplace. It’s my daydream, you can join me or not.
The turtleneck poncho is here!
Maybe the cropped ribbed is more your style.
Move over cashmere, there is a new scarf in town. Meet mYak from Italy. The company was created by the Terre Nomadiche, a cooperative founded out of respect for traditional cultures and a collaboration with local communities in the Tibetan Plateau.
Let me cut to the chase here. The baby Yak started shedding it’s super light weight, soft, fuzzy and warm coat in May. The nomads in the Tibetan Plateau comb and collect the short fibres of baby yak wool but it is particularly difficult to spin and work with, especially for knitwear. Here is where mYak comes in; to spin and weave the baby yak wool they have partnered with a family-run mill in Italy with strong traditions of care for the environment who are able to spin and weave the highest quality textiles from even the finest fibers.
They do not chemically treat or bleach any of the textiles. The final product is the finest, luxurious scarves and blankets.
