In May of this turbulent year, Paloma wool charmed the fashion world with their “virtual runway,” the result of a call-out made on Instagram to anyone willing to sport their Paloma Wool garments and turn their garden, porch, verandah, bedroom, or living room into a runway. The light-hearted spirit and inclusive attitude behind the initiative helped further consolidate Paloma Wool’s dedicated online community of creative people—largely women—around the world, such that the label has withstood much of the economic pressure of the COVID crisis.
This most recent instalment of the ongoing project from the Barcelona-based label shows us how the label amassed such a close-knit following in the first place. Whether delicately evocative graphic prints or knitted psychedelic swirls, Paloma Wool always seem to find a way to weave a gentle sense of wonder throughout their pieces. The new range presents us with a selection of the label’s coveted knitwear items, silky lyocell tops adorned with intoxicating patterns, vintage-inspired pants, and more, all made in Spain and Portugal from the highest quality alpaca, wool, lyocell, and, of course, organic cotton.
If there is one style of garment that has gained most attention for the Spanish label, it is undoubtedly their knit sweaters, which count literary-inclined supermodel Kaia Gerber and Berlin-based artist Riya Hamid among their fans. Somehow simultaneously light and heavy, Paloma Wool knits bring attention to the space they occupy. Paloma Wool knits move with you. Paloma Wool knits breathe.
The Twister Sweat has become a staple for the label, evincing Paloma Wool’s love for simple intarsia patterns. Knitted from a super soft wool-alpaca-synthetic blend, this knitted sweater features a dark navy body with a contrast swirl intarsia in a lighter shade of blue across the front & back and a unique boxy-fit. This knit sweater also features a ribbed crew neckline, cuffs, and bottom hem.
Paloma Wool knits are mulesing-free from carefully, pain-free shaven animals that are bred and fed in their natural environment, respectful of their natural habitat and life patterns.
Made in Spain from 36% wool mulesing-free, 35% acrylic, 15% responsibly-sourced alpaca, 13% polyamide, 1% elastane.
