Winter has its comforts. Those things that – even on the chilliest of days – alleviate the gloom, shining like a ray of light through the seemingly infinite cold, splintering our vision of its iciness with the warming cracks of romance. Those beacons of wintry positivity are things like big mugs of hot chocolate or spicy mulled wine, the perfect trench coat worn with wellingtons, the rain watched from the safety of a doorway, the smell of candles and log fires. The things that give autumn something to look forward to.
It’s impossible not to count cosy knitwear amoung those things. Is there anything cuter on a cool day than padding around the house in warm woollen socks and an oversized knit? Anything better to soften the wind’s bite than a thick cable-knit scarf or pom-pom capped beanie?
If you agree then Roboty Reczne’s (robotyreczne.com) fall / winter 2012 look book of hand-knitted wares – aptly and sweetly title I WOOL LOVE YOU – will have you at hello. It not only showcases winter knitwear staples that are both cosy and covetable, it does so in a way that recognises, and perfectly plays to, that wintery romance.
Modelled by Aleksandra Steplewska and photographed by Monika Witowska, it’s as sweet an introduction to the Polish brand (for those who don’t already know it) than you ever could have hoped for. View the full look book at the gallery above.
