Simple shapes combined with vibrant colors, prints and crazy details are definitely my cup of tea so I was really excited when months ago I heard of the new collaboration between the renowned British-Brazilian duo Clements Ribeiro (yes, they're almost back, finally!) and the English embroiderer and mixed media textile designer Karen Nicol (remember the Marc Jacobs and Chloe collaborations?) for a collection of embellished cashmere knits. A project consisting in only 200 one-of-a-kind amazing pieces adorned in vintage trinkets - charms, beads, buttons, even old belt buckles - Nicol's has collected over the years. Judging by pictures they're precious.
Some of the knits were available on Net-A-Porter, but they went sold out in a moment (no recession for luxury items!).
I'm in awe of each of these pieces and I can officially say that a personal DIY interpretation will come soon...check back!
