Sheep Couture

While roaming around London, we stumbled across Esprit's collaboration with The Royal College of Art project, The Sheep Couture Collection. The RCA invited graduating Knitwear students to create a collection for Esprit. The outcome was fun and interesting, and the winning entrants had their quirky designs made with british yarns and are being showcased in their stores for a limited time only. Some of the pieces are quite sculptural and the more wearable pieces are available for sale to the public too. Well worth a peek, check out the mini pop-up gallery spaces in Esprit stores around London. The show catalogue is also really well designed and quirky! Illustrations are by Kevin Lyons.
