Style Bubble: Sister Sibling
For her wildly popular blog, Style Bubble , London-based Susie Bubble (no, it's not her real name) draws inspiration from indie designers, fashion history, and her own closet. We've asked her to blog for us all week on Lucky Right Now.
I feel very blessed to be living through a time when knitwear is experiencing such an innovative renaissance that is producing sterling names such as Sandra Backlund, Louise Goldin and Mark Fast. On the other end of the spectrum that's less about creating structural feats with yarn and more about cozy pieces that you want to throw on all day, every day in sub-zero temperatures (Celsius NOT Fahrenheit!).The London-based knitwear trio Sibling that consists of Cozette McCreery, Joe Bates and Sid Bryan have been creating collections that give sweaters and cardigans a big kick up the butt. Motifs include sequin leopard patches, skulls merging with Breton stripes and beaded rats. They are applying their knitting skills to recognisable classics such as school blazers, trench coats and biker jackets.
Their latest collection presented at London Fashion Week is another gender-ambiguous collection that is full of Americana and punk-themed graphics that make an impact on men and women. I'm still after one of Sibling's classic pieces, the knitted biker which they've revived for this collection in a chunky hand knit making it even more covetable.
