Sandra Backlund

Sandra Backlund's mysterious knitting technique has garnered her a lot of attention since she started her career. A virtual unknown based in Stockholm Sweden came from the underground design world. Her work caught the eye of Marc Jacobs and was asked to contribute to Louis Vuitton's AW/07 collection.

Having truly hit her stride Sandra was chosen my Vogue Italia's Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani to create a collection for Protege Project in Florence, Italy.

Only four years as a kntwear designer Sandra has constantly improved upon her designs by letting the human body be her inspiration.
Collaborations I would like to see: Missoni, Pringle, Burberry

Can't beat the Swedes when it comes to design. I really like the shapes and the single medium signature. Brilliant.

It's hard to believe that she's been doing this for only 4 years! Her work is inspirational. Knitting is definitely an art form and Sandra's work is stunning. Thanks for the great post - love your blog!
