Knitwear Lab has used its design expertise to showcase Biella Yarn’s finest quality materials, where a selection of yarns from the new collection book was implemented in the creation of two male and female looks, entirely designed, developed and produced by Knitwear Lab.

With the idea of combining elegance with athleisure, the designs have a classic appearance and a timeless look. Comfortable fit, fluid silhouettes and thin layers of knitted fabric make it the perfect everyday summer look, says Knitwear Lab. The SS23’ looks are a set of two garments, each presented in two colourways.

The male look consists of a fine knitted polo shirt with contrasting details on the edges and is made of Brisbane Crêpe Nm 2/60 Superfine Merino Wool in the colour deep blue, while the yarn used for muted green is Microfiamma Seta Nm 37000 Extrafine Merino Wool blended with Silk. The lightweight structure of the polo shirt gives the garment a smooth breathable texture. The trousers have a relaxed fit, made of the OTW Onyx Nm 2/48 Extrafine Merino Wool yarn, that in combination with the Stoll-weave-in knitting technique gives a heavier texture with a pleasant soft touch.
