Fashion Scout » Emdal ColorKnit (…Purl Knit Purl)


In case you haven’t heard, Copenhagen is the word. A hub for hip designers, the city has cemented itself as one of fashion’s most promising destinations of late. Among the slew of talented young creatives there, we at Lo’s List are loving Signe Emdal. Three years ago, the textile designer and artist launched Emdal ColorKnit, a line of digital knits with eye-popping color and graphic intrigue.

The printed fabrics for her capes, dresses, hoodies, turtlenecks, cardis and scarves are created with a digitized industrial knitting machine and then finished by hand–making each piece one of a kind. We’re crushing on the Queen Cardigan, a flowing sculpted cardi with amplified rose print and beautiful knit details. Apparently Emdal’s work has caught the attention of several others, too — she created the Queen Cardigan for her Majesty’s birthday and has collaborated with the likes of Nikita, Henrik Vibskov, rockers Oh No Ono and artist Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen.
