It’s that time of year once again, and we’re thrilled to announce Lost Horizons’ latest collection of sweaters and hand-knitted accessories is officially here!
This season, we’re proud to present more than 20 new designs and fresh colorways for women and men. Characterized by deep natural hues and complex patterns, this collection references Native American wool blankets and Turkish kilim rugs, and draws inspiration from the landscapes of the American West.
We’ve also called on some familiar motifs you’ve come to know and love from Lost Horizons, including Fair Isle knit patterning and florals inspired by Eastern European folk art and embroidery.
“This year I am especially excited by all shades of natural gray, charcoal and ecru accented with plums, coral, teal, jade and berry pinks and Adriatic blues,” Lost Horizons Designer, Julie Powell, says of this year’s colorways.
As always, this range has been hand-crafted in Nepal and spotlights the artisanal skills of our talented knitting team. You’ll find specialized knitting techniques such as intarsia and fine hand-embroidery across the collection, plus a use of bobbles and three-dimensional stitches for texture and body.
Other designs in the range are more subtle, such as the Akari and Midori accessories that both use Japanese Sashiko-style embroidery in dual tones, the Everly with its colored cables, and the crochet-adorned Celine.
“It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I love the men’s Mateo Sweater because of its rich color palettes and authentic geometrics,” Julie says. “I also love the women’s Willow Accessories because of their gorgeous hand-knit cabling.”
