This jacket was designed by Geske who trained at the School of Decorative Art (now Denmark’s Design School) in Copenhagen during the 1970’s. Following graduation, she worked in her studio with tapestry, lace-making, and machine embroidery.
This jacket is inspired by a drawing and cut pattern from a fashion magazine from 1892. The tightly strung, swaying outline of the female body culminated with the curved S shape in the late 1800s.
“The craftsmanship -- the process of working with my knitting machine to discover what it can do -- to the nurturing and development of a small detail of a design -- this is what fascinates me”.
Geske’s objective is to create high quality, timeless designs that can be worn year after year.
The jacket is knitted in 100% merino.
The jacket must be hand washed gently and put on a terry towel for drying.
