Robin Melanson

for Louet North America   2012


In which Melanson presents a wondrously shaped cardigan, faintly Empire in line, with beautiful detailing throughout. Look at the photo of the cuff detailing: there's a whiff of the lace pattern just above the purl-bead rib. And look at the way the decreases are placed for the V-neck-- way off to the side, emerging organically from one of the lace leaf-lines. This is artistry. And it's done in the exceptional Gems superwash wool, with the twist that shows off stitch patterning so very well: a perfect, romantic marriage of design and materials.
