Founded by Soren Nielsen Skyt in 1931 in Herning, S.N.S. Herning is the iconic Danish brand, famed for producing traditional fishermen's sweaters from the original early 20th century patterns. The knitwear is still produced on German Stoll knitting machines. Each finished piece is still signed by the individual knitter and the main part of the collection each season is still a remake of designs from the archives. Function is key. The classic 'bubble' pattern evolved as a means of creating a heavily insulated garment, the texture of the yarn to withstand hard manual work. However, though the logo still bears the dinghy icon, it isn't just trawlermen heading for Herning.
Enough of Autumn. It?s all about Fall. We are super proud to have our first delivery of Engineered Garments. Inspired by the American sportswear, outdoor clothing and military uniforms he coveted in his youth in Japan, designer Daiki Suzuki has engineered a collection of meticulous detail. We?re showing Engineered with Quoddy footwear, handsewn by the Shorey family in Maine since 1909. Get to The Hambledon for a full blast of Americana.
Are you in love? We are. This is the prettiest collection in the building, ever. It's a little bit princess, a little bit Jackie O, a little bit Rydell High and even includes our favourite obligatory fluoro flashes. Please accessorise with tissue paper pom poms. We don't know why but you just must.
