Introducing CAPSULE

  Today we’re proud to raise the curtain on our very first printed knitting book — the first installment in a project we call CAPSULE. This new series gives a single designer the stage to present a whole fashion story told in Brooklyn Tweed wool. Our house team polishes the patterns and Jared photographs the garments, but the most exciting part of all is that each CAPSULE collection is offered as a high-quality bound book.

Her garments and accessories...
