l'etoile Winter Editorial 2011: The Knitting Factory

Minnesota: home of five month-long winters, ground zero of Snowmageddon, originating spot of lumberjack chic. We scoff at a foot of snow and traverse ice storms with aplomb, and we do it with style. So it should be no surprise that one of our greatest exports is knitwear.

Two born-and-bred designers, Kevin Kramp and Annie Larson, have been making waves on the international circuit as of late, thanks to genre-pushing designs, strong web presences, and loads of ambition. Though the two couldn’t have more distinct aesthetics (Kramp’s avant-garde men’s knits put an emphasis on shape, while Larson’s pieces are nostalgic and graphic-heavy), we reimagined the two together, styled with knits from Philadelphia-based brand Isobel & Cleo. Covering up has never been so stylish. -Jahna Peloquin
