About a year ago I had this idea that I would design a collection that was totally inspired by caves. Stalactite fringing, cables that looked like calcified deposits, nubby textured merino juxtaposed with slick monofilament to mimic wet rock, mossy mohair fuzziness, all knitted in dark moody beautiful colours. A magical visit to Gasparee caves in Trinidad made me certain that some day I wanted to shoot here. Fast forward one year later and despite all the red tape and bureaucratic BS we had to fight to get clearance for the location, my Gollum cave shoot has become a reality and I cannot wait to share the photos. For now, here's a look at some behind the scenes that shows the amazing team hard at work making magic. Special thank you to Kyon De Leon for coming on board at the very last minute and putting this video together for us all to enjoy.
Funny to flashback to this other video from earlier this year here when I was in the middle of the design phase but already had the cave shoot idea clear in my head. You have to love it when ideas come to fruition
