SHIFTED BASICS is a capsule collection consisting of contemporary hand-knitted pieces with emphasis on asymmetry. The designs gently experiment with juxtapositioned texture and color, creating elegant and uneven silhouettes.

EROSION, the process of soil and rock deteriorating from the Earth’s surface by the forces of wind and water, influenced this collection. It is a slow, steady, natural process and the collection reflects that with it’s gradual evolution of fabric and stitch manipulations. The designs start off simple, with clean stitches and straight silhouettes; as the collection advances it becomes more complex and irregular. The use of uneven textures applied with nuno felting techniques creates the disintegrated feeling at the end of the collection.
