Sandra Backlund

Today and Tomorrow reminded me of Sandra Backlund's amazing knitwear. She has a new collection out - Last Breath Bruises. Sandra takes knitting to a whole new level, creating complex, sculptural pieces through her heavy wool collage knitting technique. From the artist:
I am really fascinated by all the ways you can highlight, distort and transform the natural silhouette of the body with clothes and accessories. I build my garments by hand from a couple of basic bricks which I multiply and attach to each other in different ways to discover the shape that I want. In that sense I approach fashion more like a sculptor than a tailor.
