Cozy up in tentacles & baubles


Many months ago, I was visiting Harputs Market, and saw this lovely collar of knitted bobbles.
I instantly wrote down the name on a piece of paper, and almost immediately lost it. For months, it was driving me crazy… I know the name was a A-H but it couldn’t have been Anya Hindmarch. Well, I just chalked it up to “could be amazing posts” that will never be.

Suffice to say, upon walking down Kastaniallle in Berlin, we kept passing by this little shop with an amazing dress with padded straps, it was almost like sculpture, when we entered the shop, the collar of bobbles was there! Designed by Anuschka Hoenever the visiting Berlin based studio/showroom is definitely a treat. Anuschka herself runs the shop where she is warm and talkative, showing her inspiration and in-the-works collections. Ultimately, the pieces are richly three-dimensional, it’s very interesting how she integrates sculpture with her work, making it wearable, therefore functional. The bobbles in the spring collection are lightweight and wrapped in jersey and tulle, while the winter pieces are tentacle like forms wrapped in knits to give the wearer a feeling of being more secure, cozied up in these warm, snuggly arms.

The winter collection will be hitting stores this September

  1. I LOVE this look! What an unusual take on sculpture! Her collection will be perfect with the architecture-inspired shoes that are becoming popular this season.

  11. Excellent detailing. Anuschka Hoevener should really be applauded for a mesmerizing use of such bold trinkets. The colours are soft and completely complement the bold embellishments.

  12. It must have been fate! I find it really hard to find exciting knitwear and I love these pieces!

    Now I just need to find them in London…
