Sandra Backlund

Hello, hello! This is a special post for me, because it's my first day of self-employment! We decided it was time for me to move on from my architecture job in order to focus on Sub-Studio full time. We're very excited to see how things progress and are looking forward to spending some quality time on new projects!

Anyway, back to the blog: Sandra Backlund is a Swedish fashion designer whose work is more wearable art than every day fashion. I love Sandra's use of unusual materials (clothes pins?!) and the way that her knitted textiles are taken to the next level by becoming larger, rope-like pieces that are woven together to make the whole.
