Notes from a Swedish stylist


The cable knit

A chunky cable knit like the one Steve McQueen used to wear

Here in Lanzarote me and Lisa have been living in our cable knits. We’ve been trying to figure out exactly what it is that makes the cable knit so desirable, and have come to the conclusion that a good cable knit works great over time, all year around and to almost everything in our wardrobes. It dresses a sheer summer dress down and gives a pair of jeans a timeless look. I constantly have this image of a perfect chunky cable knit like the one Steve McQueen use to wear in my mind. And I finally think I found it!

Shadi: Thank you for a lovely blog and keep up the spirit for sustainable fashion! I have a question to you. Is it possible to take away the slightly irritating white boxes in the middle of your photos with text. I used to visit your blog on a daily basis before, but when you changed your site (which is wonderful in many ways) but just annoying to have to click on every photo to be able to see the outfits.
