Needles is Japanese design maven Keizo Shimizu’s almost avant garde take on vintage and utilitarian clothing. Repurposing is taken to an extreme, as vintage garments and fabrics are fashioned into entirely new garments, blending a classic aesthetic with a progressive, contemporary sensibility.
The Mohair Cardigan from Needles is a classic item in the fall/winter season. The use of mohair provides high heat retention, however surprisingly light weight in its construction. It also features piping at the neck, antique buttons, and an original pattern.
