Statement knitwear in earthy colour schemes.

On our minds is Brooklyn-based designer Lauren Manoogian, a well-travelled jeweller-gone-RTW designer with a sustainable sense. Starting off by forging scrap metals into heavy statement jewellery, Manoogian soon changed her practice to clothes with a less bold aesthetic but equally resourceful approach. Inspired by the patterns and textiles of Western Africa, the designer makes statement hand-loomed knitwear in an earthy colour scheme. Mastering the oversized-minimal look flawlessly, Manoogian adds to her conscious credentials with Peruvian artisans hand-dying each piece using natural, plant-based materials. Have a look at the designer’s soft-spoken Instagram account here
