Sandra Backlund F/W 09/2010
For her latest collection Sandra Backlund has collaborated with Maglificio Miles (an Italian knitwear manufacturing company). The collection was shown at the White Club back in March. The designs are reminiscent of her previous collections"ink blot test" and "blank page" but this time around in black. Her pieces are all made by machine and in much finer yarn. Wool/Cashmere blends were used giving a much lighter finer garment as opposed to her previous heavier designs.
