Crochet Queen






Sandra Backlund - Photos: John Scarisbrick

Extravagant, complex and utterly sublime, her hand knitted and crocheted collections.
Sandra Backlund is one of the many rising stars of the Swedish fashion scene.
But as the winner of the 2007 Festival d'Hyères, I think she sines the brightest.
Rarely have I seen such elaborate structure so inviting, almost as if they belonged on the human body.
Truly devine craftsmenship and daring knitwear.

"The human body is always the starting point. I am really fascinated by all the ways you can highlight, distort and transform the natural silhouette of the body with clothes and accessories." - Sandra Backlund
