S.N.S. Herning Autumn/Winter 2012 collection
Another Autumn/Winter collection, this time from knitwear specialists S.N.S. Herning. The company was founded in 1931 by Søren Nielsen Skyt in Herning, Denmark where they set about producing traditional Fishermen’s sweaters, intended to protect the wearer from the rough weather at sea, whilst also being robust enough to withstand the wear and tear from the hard work on deck.
The Fisherman sweater is still to this day being knitted at their Herning factory, and in much the same way as at it’s lauch some eighty years ago. There are strict rules that go into this particular knit – the layout of the bobble pattern, cut, measurements, and the ﬁnishing all follow a strict set of guidlines. It’s a piece that’s at the core of the range, so it comes as no surprise to see it in this new collection.
There’s plenty more in the collection with some excellent cable knits in many different styles, all of which show off the labels knitting expertise whist still staying quintessentially S.N.S. Herning in look and feel. It’s the pattern knits that these guys do better than anyone else out there and the Stark cardigan for me is one of their absolute classic items.
Colour is kept simple with navy blue, black and grey once again making up the core range but there’s also the addition of purple if you fancy something a bit different. Stripes also get a look in on a couple of pieces with the naval sweater and cardigan getting this treatment.
It’s yet another broad range of beautiful knitwear from this wonderful label. For more information, to find your nearest stockist, or to shop online go to the website here: S.N.S. Herning.
