Nanna Van Blaaderen, More or Less

The sculptural handknitted collection ‘More or Less’ is inspired by organic forms, animal life and nature. Using thick woolen yarns in off-white colors, Nanna van Blaaderen experimented in combining knitting techniques with braidingtechniques. This resulted in various expressive garments of voluminous structures and forms. (Via Nanna Van Blaaderen’s website)

Dominic Jones’s seriously amazing AW09 collection. The 2 thorn knuckleduster would look simply divine on my hand! I think Dominic should accessories the ladies in the next installment of the Twilight series or Alice Dellal, Lizzy Jagger, Eliza Cummings and Emma Chitty should just take their place, they’d make incredible vampires. His collection was photographed by Matt Irwin.

Unfortunately I saved this to my computer a few years ago without taking note of who it’s by.

Ohhh, it’s all one big long wish list! I’d better watch Derren Brown’s show tonight to see if he lets on how to predict the lottery numbers.
