Warm & Fuzzy

Sandra Backlund is more of an artist than a fashion designer. How amazing are her sculptural knits? (The answer? "Very.")
My work is very personal to me. I improvise and allow myself to lose control and see what happens if I do not think so much about practical things. The human body is always the starting point. I am really fascinated by all the ways you can highlight, distort, and transform the natural silhouette of the body with clothes and accessories. I build my garments by hand from a couple of basic bricks which I multiply and attach to each other in different ways to discover the shape that I want. In that sense I approach fashion more like a sculptor than a tailor.


  1. WOAH! way cool!
    these are amazing. i'm wondering how they were made

  2. I love the color and style of the deep purple one!

  3. does she hand knit them? Regardless, it must take forever. These are pretty amazing.
