Created through the vision of Sid Bryan, Joe Bates and Cozette McCreery, London-based label Sibling focuses on crafting the very best in knitwear, taking a quirky approach to the traditional form of fashion. For Fall/Winter 2010, we see a strong selection of playful garments being highlighted, including instant classics such as a pixelated Frankenstein sweater and colorful cardigan, amongst many others. Shown is a look into the brand’s fourth collection with further information offered below.
The label that brought you the male Twinset, Knitted Biker and a destroyed “denim” jacket in yarn, focuses this season on a cut-n-shut showcase of neon hues; bold, graphic detailing and mutated shape, proposed by a new, motley silhouette in which one sleeve is raglan, the other offset. The pixilated Frankenstein Crew is a monster mash of asymmetric shoulder line with contrast piping; the Noah Breton is resuscitated, growing a hood and attitude from its crew neck; whilst the Leopard Sequin Twinset is dissected (the cardigan of which adds a new grosgrain hidden button placket).
Fairisle knits are crafted in Scotland to traditional methods, but spirited with skulls and monsters. Artist Will Broome’s characterful wit surfaces in the collaboration Beware Hairy Hands, a Ski Sweater in which his drawings are translated into embroidery and intarsia. An abundance of ribs and fins grow from the Rib Back Rib Neck Cardi, and the idea of ensemble continues – matching scarves are available for the Scary Tank Top and comic book burglar-chic Social Zombie Crew and Cardigan are perfect for cruising in The Mystery Machine. Taking the idea of ‘total look’ to extremes, is the trio’s a top-to-toe Fairisle knit, complete with knitted mask and raffia-Mohican hat. A Knitmare in the making.
