Australian Designer – I Love Mr Mittens
POSTED : July 10th, 2015 | CATEGORY : Australian Style
As one of the coldest week’s in Sydney’s history, it is only appropriate to feature one of our favourite winter wool Australian designers – I Love Mr Mittens. Belgian born, Stéphanie Caulier, grew up in a family surrounded by knitting and sewing, it was only natural that Stéphanie developed an interest in knitwear. It has been a labour of love over the years and from small beginnings of knitting for family and friends, the brand has evolved to almost a cult following.
Whilst not following traditional academic design study, Stephanie has honed her skills through years of experience in her chosen craft. She combines this knowledge with her keen fashion eye to create a line of unique chunky wool garments. We just love that everything is handmade and think these chunky knits are a great style statement as shown below…
I Love Mr Mittens is not only a fashion label, it is a label based upon community and sustainability – we heart that. It is also important to recognise I love Mr Mittens “Heartworking” philosophy. Each garment is hand knitted with love by Stephanie and her team.
This collaboration of small, independent businesses (rather than large conglomerates) completes the vision of I Love Mr Mittens to create a brand that provides a genuine contribution back to the local community. University students and retired pensioners alike, work with a common objective of executing Stephanie’s vision of how knitwear should be, simple, elegant, timeless and fashionable.
Whilst these items are expensive, they are an investment for many winters to come. As she always gets overloaded with orders in winter, we would recommend ordering early every winter. Check out these gorgeous winter warmers at http://ilovemrmittens.com or @ilovemrmittens.
