This Mulberry documentary on the women who hand knit the chunky wool pieces from the Mulberry Autumn Winter 2012 collection is fashion porn. What a brilliant little film that takes you into the lives of those that make the clothing and their specialized skills. I love that Mulberry uses traditional British crafts. I’m now obsessed with getting myself a Mulberry sweater.
Mulberry’s short documentary ‘Spinning a Yarn’ focuses on Margaret and Valerie – two of the women responsible for hand-knitting the thick, sheep’s wool pieces from the Mulberry Autumn Winter 2012 Catwalk Collection.
I’m attracted to striped sweaters this winter. This fixation is primarily for the Breton stripe variety. Right now, the Holy Grail of all Breton stripe sweaters would be to own a Jean Paul Gaultier original but these Banjo and Matilda cashmere ones will be just fine.
Banjo and Matilda sweaters are available at Holt Renfrew.
