A New Kind of Knitwear

Knitwear is a fundamental part of any wardrobe - whether you're wearing it on its own or layering it with a shirt and tailoring, it offers warmth, comfort and ease of wear. For New Zealand's changeable climate, that’s doubly true - having a soft, adaptable layer that can be easily added to an outfit is near-essential - especially one that resists creasing.

We’ve spent the last few years perfecting our knitwear programme, and for Autumn Winter 2021 we are launching our largest collection ever. The thinking was simple - with more  clients than ever looking for comfortable, transitional clothing as well as more traditional styles, we wanted to create light, soft and elegant pieces that offered maximum wearability without sacrificing their sartorial style.

It took us a long time to find a production partner that could deliver on our vision of softer, lighter, more sartorial knitwear. We knew we had found something special when we partnered with our factory in Italy’s Abruzzo region. With nearly seven decades and several generations of experience, their expertise and traditional, artisanal manufacturing allowed us to design and produce pieces that were not only luxurious but carefully designed to work in an Antipodean environment.

Our first drop of AW21 knitwear keeps the classics covered. There are versatile crew neck and v-neck sweaters, perfect for layering, timeless roll necks and zip-through sweaters, which work great either on their own or under a jacket.

We will be expanding the collection with some exciting new styles over the coming weeks - let us know if you’ve got questions or would like to try a piece on in person.
