My love for fashion started at an early age as I was influenced by my mother’s flair for fashion and her skill in front of the sewing machine. At that young age, seeing her turn an ordinary piece of material into a piece of art was truly something.
I’ve always admired how elegant and stylish she looks no matter the occasion. Super casual in jeans and a light knit today, timeless in a pant suit the next day and absolutely breath-taking in an evening gown – she never seizes to amaze me, through fashion and through the superhuman she is.
Knitwear become one my favourite pieces of clothing as my mom always had the most beautiful knitwear that I always longed for. To her, the colder season meant new additions of quality knits into her wardrobe – warm, chic merino wools from Trenery that I knew would magically appear into my wardrobe a few weeks later.
I’ve always had an eye for her clothing because we have the same love for good quality pieces and fabrics that feel good on the skin, much like these cosy knits from Trenery that we’re wearing.
As much we enjoy the same aesthetic of simplicity and comfort, we show our various personalities in what we wear. Mom enjoys prints more than I do – she wears a printed smooth satin dress and a dark headscarf while I stay true to my love for solid colours in a dark magenta ribbed rollneck knit and black tailored pants.
KNITTED IN MERINO WOOL
The one thing my mom always emphasizes is to dress for yourself and most importantly be comfortable, be able to breath. This is why Merino Wool is her favourite fabric to play around with in the colder season – it is soft, breathable and comfortable. We both go for flattering curved hem knits in an extra-soft merino wool blend. Mom continues to show her love for prints in a bold block striped knit and I go for a light grey colour block panelled knit.
Knitwear is the answer to our outwear needs. It relaxed, a true classic and stylish – no matter the design.
