Lars Andersson is a New York based designer originally from Sweden. He focuses on knitwear because everyone who lives in Sweden learns how to knit; it is part of the culture. His own description of his collections and styles is “dark urban hippie.” This description remains evident in his new Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection.
Lars Andersson’s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection is composed of a hue of dark colors, as opposed to lighter shades and pastels often used by many designers for the season. The main colors used throughout the looks are maroon, deep plum, and black. This keeps with the dark feel the designer loves so much. Several of the style knits have V-necks or low rounded necklines, which add a nice shape to a simple and comfortable sweater. Many of these looks have extra detail on the cuffs as well as the bottom of the sweaters, which makes his designs have a thicker look and comfortable.
Some of the cardigans include a fabric belt, which almost makes it appear to have a robe like look to it. This provides a sense of coziness as well as easiness. The hoods for these cardigans are also extremely long and slightly dramatic, which allows for a sense of darkness, which is a key feature of his looks. If these sound like your style, check out Lars Andersson’s past collection at http://www.larsandersson.net.”
