From designer Kirsten Singer: When I was building this collection, I really wanted to select a theme that would allow me to create timeless garments that were interesting to knit, easy to wear, and could be knit throughout the year. As I was trying to come up with some ideas for a theme, I came across a photo of some Sperry Top-Sider loafers, and it hit me…what was more timeless and classic than preppy, nautical knits.
So once I had my theme figured out, I began to think about the pieces I would wear throughout the year on or around the water. So, things I would wear if I got invited sailing, something to wear at the end of a long beach day and the air starts to get a chill, or even something to wear along the boardwalk on a cold fall evening.
The High Seas Collection features 3 nautical themed sweater designs from Kirsten Singer, a history of women’s beach wear from Kate McCreight, thoughts on inspiration and Kirsten’s design process, and a letter from editor Allyson Dykhuizen.Pin It
