The Assemblist Letter 53 - Hillary's 2017 Winter Staples
ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME WILL AGREE THAT I PROBABLY WEAR A SWEATER EVERY DAY DURING THE WINTER MONTHS!
Nothing beats an amazing chunky ivory knit sweater, but in addition to this timeless staple here are a few winter essentials I'm loving from our brand community:
GO-TO BRAND ASSEMBLY DESIGNER FOR KNITWEAR:
I definitely have a couple! Delfina Balda is perfect for some more dramatic knitwear pieces that are hand-knit. I love the craftsmanship that goes into each of their pieces. ÖHLIN/D is another one too. They are starting to make a name for themselves as a knitwear source… one of my favorite pieces is this mossy green cable sleeve sweater. It combines traditional knit patterns and an awesome unique color!
GO-TO BRAND ASSEMBLY DESIGNER THAT ALL CONTEMPORARY SHOPPERS SHOULD HAVE:
I am really seeing an evolution with Silvae. I have been following her for a couple seasons now and each season it becomes more wearable and accessible, but still with a very sophisticated cool girl vibe. One of my favorite pieces from her this winter was this eyelash windowpane knit top.
A WINTER PIECE WORTH INVESTING IN FROM A BRAND ASSEMBLY DESIGNER:
An amazing coat!! I love buying one amazing coat per winter season. This year it was a Nikki Chasin nubby wool ivory jacket! It is perfect to dress up or dress down and has such a unique texture!"
