CAPSULE Fall 2015 Description
Beautifully photographed by Jared Flood, this book includes eight original knitwear patterns from Olga Buraya-Kefelian and a glossary of special techniques used in each design, as well as lush photographic spreads of the collection.
Olga Buraya-Kefelian‘s design sense is instantly recognizable: inventive, questing, unwilling to be bound by two dimensions. Her garments have an essence of art that outlasts fashion, yet are always wearable and constructed with the knitter’s experience in mind. Brooklyn Tweed is proud to collaborate with Olga in this first BT Capsule, a platform for one independent designer to spin out a unique story in a collection of garments knit from all-American wool.
Olga’s interest in texture and geometry is everywhere in these pages. From dense cables to airy open lace, she explores the full range of possible fabrics that our woolen-spun yarns can create. In four garments and four accessories, she filters inspiration from Japan through her own inimitable aesthetic to create distinctively modern designs that will bring a jolt of energy to your wardrobe.
Patterns in this collection are made with Brooklyn Tweed's woolen-spun yarns (Loft, Shelter, and Quarry) to showcase the variety of possible fabrics and forms. Each project is presented in Brooklyn Tweed's thorough and educational format, with careful attention to the knitter's experience.
