Chunky, cropped, cabled: knits are in everyone's wardrobe this season, but now meet the collective who are making actually knitting your own pieces cool again.
Jade Harwood and friend Aurelie Popper, met while studying Textile Design at Central Saint Martins in London. The pair worked together at Alexander McQueen and Balmain in Paris, before using their combined skills to create their very own DIY fashion brand Wool and the Gang aimed to make knitting cool, fun, and fast with their simple knit kits.
'We wanted to inspire a younger generation to make their own clothes,' says Jade on why they started Wool and the Gang. 'The best thing about our knits is the the sheer magic of creating your own garments.'
This month the collective have made it major by joining forces with & Other Stories to create a collection of playful wool wear. 'The collaboration is our most adventurous collection of clothing', Jade continues. 'Using a variety of our yarns accessorised with pearl and gold accents. They are the kind of pieces that you'll treasure forever.'
Here's a peek at the collection, which is in stores now, and is all available to buy here. These are stocking stuffers of knit lover dreams.
