New York Fashion Week: Presenting Capsule Collection
New York Fashion Week 2017 hosted knitwear designer Liisa Soolepp. Designer presented at Studio 450 her latest Capsule collection. Show was produced by Oxford Fashion Studio.
“An impulse came from a distant memory of a certain veranda that I have started to long for as I have urbanised. The smells, the sunspots, rainy summer days and the dewy grass. My sensory oasis,” says the designer where her source of inspiration came from. “Besides, my ideas start flying when I flick through handicraft magazines that date back to Soviet times.”
Designer plays the patterns up and down, she manipulates with yarn in order to create wearable connection between the nostalgy and the present day. Capsule collection is an ode to simplicity where oversized knits have an accent on the structure. Knits are as seamless as they could and they have few cuts. I want the natural material to speak fully for itself.
Liisa Soolepp creates stories through knitwear that is made to last. Her simple, yet personal perspective is born and bred by cold climate, life in a small town and desire to create more meaningfulness.
Reflecting quality, femininity and spirit, designer aims to attract like-minded women who see her knitwear as talismans that help to create inspirational space and atmosphere around their individuality.
