Pick of the Knits

Whoever said knits are only for winter obviously hadn’t set eyes on The Carmen, a limited edition Merino dress created by designers Kaylene Milner and Carmen Hamilton. “Slow-fashion means I can create artisanal garments, designed to be worn and cherished year after year. I love how a single yarn can create a beautiful garment,” Kaylene says of her first foray into ethically minded design. Looking right at home in your summer wardrobe or as a layer piece for autumn and spring, The Carmen might set you back a pretty penny, but that’s only because it’s crafted to order in Kaylene’s Sydney studio on a specialty zero-waste knitting machine.
