A new British knitwear accessories label Eleven Everything has launched, fusing traditional craftsmanship with a contemporary sports luxe aesthetic.
Based in London, the knitwear label founded by designer Kathryn Spence, a Scottish knitwear specialist formerly of Catirfina and commercial director Eva Evers, who founding e-commerce site Bengt, has already been picked up by Net-a-Porter, as well as department stores and boutiques around the world, from Goldie HP in France to Harvey Nichols in Baku.
Eleven Everything combines traditional knitting techniques, such as vintage hand-framed, artisanal knitting and weaving with contemporary techniques, like cutting-edge and screen-printed foiling, with all pieces made from Scottish and Italian cashmere, silk and pure merino wool.
For its debut collection for autumn/winter 2014, the knitwear label has combined geometric abstraction with sci-fi influences and proportions to create a sporty, luxe and modern line featuring scarves, snoods, hoods, hats, gloves and legwarmers in metallic foiling and bold, contrasting colour-blocking.
Commenting on the collection, Spence said: “Each of our pieces is individually-constructed with real integrity and attention to detail, so that the wearer instinctively knows that it is an accessory to treasure and wear with endless pleasure – and for others to covet.”
Prices range from 175 to 360 pounds.
