It has been a while since our last blog story (and newsletter...) as we have been finalising the RANT Yarn collection. If you have been browsing our website over the last month you would have seen that we have been gradually uploading pieces from the collection as they come back from the sewers, which are then personally checked by Rant staff and uploaded onto the website. We hope that you are all liking what you are seeing!!! We have received some great feedback from some loyal customers already and we would like to thank you all for your support. It really makes our day when we read all the positive feedback!
Now I would like to introduce you to our Japanese made linen and tencel knit fabric, as this is a new fabric for the Yarn collection. The knit is mill end, which means this was surplus fabric left over from a large order at the Japanese mill where it was produced. To ensure this beautiful fabric didn't go to waste, Sarah decided to make a few key pieces out of this fabric. Because it is mill end, we only secured limited amounts of fabric and therefore have small amounts of stock & makes these pieces extra special :)
Shown above is the Vertigo wrap (left) and the Cee Cee wrap (right) which are both available in 3 different colour ways: black/marle, taupe/black and olive/marle. The fine stripes you see measure 2mm wide. Both pieces are extremely versatile and can be styled in a multiple of ways, as you can see. All 3 colour ways in this fabric go extremely well with our Yarn bamboo jersey garments. The knit is of very high quality, the tencel provides smoothness and drape while the linen adds slight texture to the knit.
These wrap styles are the perfect accessory for an outftit, whether you need pockets provided by the Cee Cee wrap, or to add point of interest from the Vertigo wrap. Both wraps provide extra warmth and look great over the bamboo tops or over a pair of leggings.
The third key piece is the Treble vest. Specially designed to incorporate all 3 colour ways, the interesting darts and panels distort the stripes and add texture. It is a light top layer providing extra warmth, that matches most bamboo tops and looks beautiful with both pants and skirts. It is shown above paired with the Riva pant and the Yvette 3/4 top.
The Treble vest, Vertigo wrap and Cee Cee wrap are all available now on the website. For extra styling tips with the Vertigo and Cee Cee wraps, please see the individual products as we have provided many different ways to style each product along with specific fabric swatches. If you have any questions or want extra styling tips from Sarah, please send us an email.
I hope you enjoy the 2016 Yarn collection!
