The never-ending search for the perfect knit pieces is looking more hopeful. Thanks to designers Valentine Rémusat and George Luong who took on the challenge with their new collection, Les Valentines mixes up and delivers everything we love about knitwear. Bringing their expertise garnered at such houses as Céline, Sonia Rykiel and Tse, Rémusat and Luong tell a story in cashmere that is buttery soft, feminine, and technically masterful.
A grandfather cardigan, the ribbing seamlessly curving down the arm, surprises with a sheer gauze back panel. Another gives the option of wearing the sleeves, or draping them like a shawl around the shoulders leaving the buttoned vest. Carefully considered proportions hang away from the body but manage to be slimming with the perfect amount of slouchiness. Hand picked vintage buttons add that extra personal touch.
