The faces behind LN pt. 4: Lively Lien

Now that we have covered the ladies that are more visible at LN (because you can meet them in the store, haha), it’s time to introduce you to the woman who really stays under the radar but who is one of the most important people apart from Ellen to keep LN running: Lively Lien! Lien started working at LN Knits almost 4 years ago. “I actually started here as a student. Through the organisation High Potential Students I applied for a job as a social media & content manager, without knowing for which company I was applying. Only after a second interview with Ellen I knew that I would start working for LN Knits.” Same as yours truly, Lien started as a greenie. Her first working experience existed out of helping to run the first LN summer pop-up in Antwerp. “There wasn’t even an LN Office yet. We worked from…

There it is finally! LN’s third knitting and crocheting book In de wolken is completely dedicated to the cutest outfits for your little kiddo. And after months of hard work, we’re finally able to provide you with an awesome sneak peek of our cutest knitting book so far. Who thinks about knitting – and let’s admit, also when we say the word “alpaca” – you automatically think about Ellen Kegels. As you know, she started LN Knits more than 10 years ago under the name of LN Beanies. The beanies are still key in every collection, but now they also come in mini versions in the adorable LN Kids lines!The choice for a DIY book for kids’ outfits didn’t come out of nowhere of course. On the 23rd of September, Ellen became a proud mother of her first daughter, Lucy. In English we would say she’s “over the moon” but…

LN fans in the spotlight: Marta

Hi folks, You, the clients, are staying mostly incognito, but we can’t forget that you are also a big part of what makes this brand so special. It’s thanks to your endless support and nice comments that we have the drive to keep on doing what we do. So, this is our chance to say that we love you as much as you love LN. For this blogpost we won’t introduce you to a face behind LN Knits, but rather to one of our biggest fans: Marta Pisini. Marta originates from Tuscany in Italy and moved to Antwerp together with her boyfriend and two dogs, Paco and Pedro, because of her job. “My biggest struggle with moving to Belgium was dealing with the cold.” I hear you thinking already: then alpaca knitwear is perfect! I agree. But how did Marta get in contact with the brand in the first place?…

People who follow Ellen on Instagram have probably seen her appear already, a beauty with long blonde hair and excellent taste. I’m talking about Charlotte of course. Charlotte is Ellen’s 25 year old sister, currently finishing her Master in Communications. For the next couple of months, she will be stepping in at LN to help Ellen now that the baby is coming. Ever since Charlotte was 15, LN Knits has been a part of her life. Before Ellen moved out of her parents’ house, she ran LN from home. “Ellen even taught me how to make beanies, but I wasn’t as good at it as she was. I don’t really have the patience for it.” (laughs) Charlotte has been helping out ever since the brand started: working in the store, in the pop-ups and helping with the big shipments. She has done and seen it all. It comes as no…

We can’t help but sigh with a big “aaaaaaah” when we see the LN Kids collection. It’s just so damn cute! Can you already imagine the sunny autumn days? Strolling through the park, gathering chestnuts, running around and getting that cute red nose and cheeks? You realize that it’s getting colder, but you don’t care, because you’re all wrapped up in baby alpaca so you’re nice and warm. Nice and warm is what you also want for your kids on their winter adventures. Throw snowballs without getting cold fingers or make snow angels and go back in afterwards for that delicious hot chocolate. We know it’s still summer, but we can’t way for fall to arrive. We can already smell the cinnamon buns and burning logs in the fireplace. 1. The Boys Vest is a new item in the LN Beanies collection. It’s a super cute and warm vest for…

Hey everyone, It’s me again, the LN intern. Last time I had a nice chat with Eva and you can read all about it here. But as most of you know we have another lovely shop assistant in the Leopoldstraat 22, Hilde!     Hilde and Eva have some things in common. They both have three children for example. Eva just became a grandmother for the first time last week and Hilde will become one this month! Congratulations, ladies! “Being a mother is really important to me. It was the most beautiful gift I could have wished for in my life.” Hilde told me. When you meet Hilde, you instantly feel that she’s a warm and caring woman. She’s interested, a good listener and always ready for a chat. Very important for a shop assistant might I add! But this time it was my turn to listen. “A lot of…

And there I was, standing in front of the LN Knits office. I was going to be a summer intern and yeah, was I excited! Trying not to think too much about the fact that I volunteered to work for free, I was ready to start contributing to this amazing brand. Let me introduce myself first. My name is Sacha and I’m a tiny 22-year old, recently graduated and ready to officially become a working adult (or something like that). I love to get creative (even some occasional knitting, wink wink) and you will often see me walking around with my camera. But enough about me. One of the nicest things about being an intern is getting to know the people behind the brand. I want to share this experience with all of you and introduce you to the people “behind the scenes”. First up is our own Enchanting Eva,…

Sneak peek: our new FW17/18 Collection!

Sneak peek: our new FW17/18 Collection!

16/06/2017

One of the best parts about having this blog is the ability to share some sneak peeks of the upcoming FW17/18 collection with our loyal readers! The main inspiration behind this collection is “Autumn in Japan”. That’s why we created moodboards to get inspired by the beautiful nature of Japan. The result is a combination of various autumn colours as well as our basic colours. Think about warm yellow, orange, red and green tones.     Those who attended our succesful LN Lions for Peru event last Sunday got an exclusive glance at our new collection during the FW17/18 catwalk. If you couldn’t make it, you will still have to wait a little longer until we officially launch our collection. However, we would like to give you a little sneak peek so that you get an idea of what to expect. >>>>>>>>  SNEAK PEEK CATWALK FW 17/18  <<<<<<<<< Be prepared for cold days Our pieces can both create…
