WOMENS FALL ARRIVALS
The first women's delivery of Fall 2019 introduces Japanese-made Vintage Terry and Italian-made Modal Rib.
Vintage Terry is a long loop fabric produced on a traditional French circular knitting machine known as a Tsuri. While modern knitting machines have anywhere from 1000 to 2000 needles, Tsuri machines have only one, giving the fabric a handknit quality. Japanese artisans known as Shokunin, oversee the knitting machines as they revolve at extremely slow speed, meticulously stacking layers of fabric with very little tension. Vintage Terry is an incredibly soft terry with a worn-in, vintage touch.
Ribbed T-Shirts are made with Modal Rib, a micromodal knit in a full rib construction. Micromodal is a premium rayon made from spun beech tree fibres. This semi-synthetic material is similar to cotton, but is softer, has better retention of colour and shape, and is less susceptible to pilling. The full rib construction results in fitted silhouettes with a natural feel.
