Wanderlust Sweaters

Do you feel this wanderlust, this strong desire to travel the world? I love travelling the world and hope that soon our lives will be back to normal and less restricted to explore the world. Gabriela Hearst created a sweater series this season that I have fallen in love with.

In her exploration of North, Central and South America this season, The designer wanted to translate some of the continent’s most beautiful places into colorful knitwear patterns. Knit in 100% cashmere for the ultimate in luxury and softness, the Ines Sweater depicts:

  • the high mountains and ski runs in Aspen, Colorado
  • the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park
  • the ancient mountain ridges and ruins in Machu Picchu, Peru (on my bucket list)
  • Teotihuacán, the ancient Aztec pyramid known as the Temple of the Sun outside of Mexico City.

Knit and hand embroidered by artisans in Italy, those sweaters are as unique as they are beautiful.
To order just click on the highlighted texts above. Wouldn’t it be an amazing gift to surprise someone with a trip to one of the destinations and gift the sweater as a gift voucher…

LoL, Sandra

Trending F/W 2021: Cutout Sweaters

If you’re sorting through which trends are worth investing for winter, then don’t overlook this Instagram-worthy style: cutout sweaters. Preferably oversized, these minimal yet revealing details are a welcome departure from the tight and slinky cutouts of past, making them both stylishly unexpected and actually wearable.

Celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian have been sporting the trend lately, which means cutout knits have staying power in your wardrobe well into the season, even when the weather takes a turn for the cold temperatures. Here are my favorites:

Cutout wool and cashmere-blend and satin sweatericon by JW Anderson

Cutout cashmere-blend turtleneck sweatericon by Victoria Beckham

Crystal-fringed cutout wool sweatericon by Christopher Kane

I went for Valentino and Area and cannot wait to show you how I wear them … stay tuned!

Cardigans are experiencing a resurgence as a key element in the contemporary wardrobe. I personally love Etro’s covetable statement pieces. Lengthy silhouettes suit the moment’s layering obsession when worn like a longline jacket, while the vibrant jacquard prints highlights the brand’s bohemian aesthetic. One thing is for sure, those knitwear pieces will transform even the most minimalist of outfits into a celebration of maximalism, and greats news is most of them are all on sale. Lively, chic and undeniably Etro.
