SPRING / SUMMER 2020
SOFT CLOTHES FOR HARD TIMES II:
SUMMER & LOUNGEWEAR
SOFT CLOTHES FOR HARD TIMES Pt II
WRAP: arrange paper of soft material around someone or
something, typically as a covering or for warmth & protection
Summer knits: fluid & breathable
Knitting doesn’t have to equal bulky sweaters: by using fine yarns and
calibrating stitch size we can create featherlight knits.
Every yarn we use has been vetted for softnIess and tactile appeal; they
are all natural and sustainable, too.
In short, summer knitwear is a treat: fluid, breathable & cool!
Loungewear, all grown up
Knitwear automatically lends itself to lounging.
Our loungewear collection offers both simplicity and variety. With
clean lines and strong shapes each piece combines easily with
others. Colour blocking and textural details elevate outfits above
track suit blandness and accessories are part of the range.
Colours are designed to go together, combining versatile neutrals
with calm, grounded brights. And pieces for transitional weather
and summer integrate & coordinate seamlessly.
Mix & match for days
3 bottoms, 8 tops (with more to come), a coat and some
Black & ivory as the base colours + a few calm, earthy brights.
Everything goes together (and with jeans), but nothing’s too matchymatchy.
Security blankets & comfort zones
We are modestly famous for our Wrapt Wraps – and in these
uncertain times, working from un-airconditioned homes in
unreliable weather, we are more attached to them than ever.
Choose between cotton, merino and mohair; use them for workfrom-home
warmth, zoom dress-up, going-out accessories, nap
blankets or even throws.

Victoria Yards, in the Joburg CBD, is our workplace
and an invigorating combination of manufacturing hub
and urban farm.
Our current range continues the theme of soft
clothes for hard times and is informed by co-existing
opposites: the delicacy of our yarns and the
durability of the end product, and the way in which
industrial and botanical is juxtaposed in cities –
illustrated beautifully at Vic Yards.
All the botanical images in the look book were taken
there in the course of late winter / early spring and
then digitally manipulated.
