The faces behind LN pt. 2: Hilde

The faces behind LN pt. 2: Hilde

11/08/2017

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…

The faces behind LN pt. I: Enchanting Eva

20/07/2017

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…

Stay consciously warm this spring with our pretty Pauline

Stay consciously warm this spring with our pretty Pauline

28/04/2017

Your number one must-have item this spring? Our Pretty Pauline!   This piece is comfortable, light, stylish and above all produced with love. A perfect way to keep yourself warm while it’s still too chilly for summer dresses. And even then, we think our Pretty Pauline is seasonless and also perfect to wear in summer. Combine your Pretty Pauline with a dress, a pair of shorts or skinny jeans for an effortless spring and summer look! Wonder why we love our Pretty Pauline so much? It’s obvious! This beautiful piece will make you feel comfortable but above all, it will keep you consciously warm during chilly spring evenings.     Why we say consciously warm? Because we really want to emphasize the importance of consciousness. All our clothes are being made in fair and sustainable conditions. No child labour, human exploitation or bad conditions. We employ more than 350 women in Peru…

  Don’t know about you but we are not the kinda girls who dress ourselves up every morning. Time is money. LNKnits + sneakers = our daily formula! Luckily for us, it doesn’t look like the comfy sneaker trend is going to dissapear anytime soon … Simplicity is key! If you agree with us, don’t hesitate to read further. You’ll be surprised by the amount of sneaker-inspired outfits we can come up with. 1/ The Jaunty Jackie Dress is a real stunner this summer! It’s the first dress we ever incorporated in our collection, made of the purest baby alpaca yarn, which makes it very light to wear during Spring and Summer. You can easily dress this piece up or dress it down.

  Hi there, I am Laura, social media intern at #lnknits! Ellen asked me to write a fashion blogpost about the ss17 #lnandes collection and of course I feel very honoured to list up some of my favourites for you! ☺ 1/ There’s one trend making a stunning appearance this fashion season: bright YELLOW. From lemon, to fluorescent, yellow is definitely at the top of my list. It’s so fresh, joyful and there’s a shade of yellow for every skin type. I think it lightens up your whole appearance immediately. The Sweet Sophie in cougar yellow is great to combine with a boyfriend jeans. It looks fab with a little tan though. Ugh, need to catch some sun asap.   Sweater Sweet Sophie (here) – Scarf Mini Maria (here) – Cosy Charlotte (here)   YSL Nailpolish (here) – LNBeanies Yarn (here) – LNKids Cotton Sunhat (here) – Reebok Sneakers (here)…

The pictures I received from beautiful brides are so stunning that they had to be shared with you! The Big Bertha is the all time favorite accessory. Hand-knit with a mixture of silk, linen and the softest and purest baby Alpaca yarn for our summer collection and with 100% baby alpaca yarn for the winter collection, this luxurious beauty is the ultimate cover-up. The Adorable Annie or Cosy Charlene can be worn during all seasons but will definitely be the perfect cover up for your Winter Wedding!

Oh happy days! After a year of hard work, I can finally present you with my cook and lifestyle book #LNFairfood! It has taken so much of my energy but it has given me even more back. I am very happy with the result and I hope you will find the book inspirational to live a healthy and pure life. I got to know the Peruvian kitchen thanks to my yearly visits to the beautiful country. Every time again I was blown away by the pure and fresh ingredients that are used. As I am a true foodie and addicted to healthy food that nourishes my entire body, I decided to share my passion with you. Pure, biological and honest food lies on the basis of everything. The book consists of 50 recipes divided in 8 categries: smoothies and juices, breakfast, eggs, cold salads, warm salads, fish, snacks, drinks and…

Warm and colourful through the winter!

For the LN|Andes winter collection we have also come up with renewed products. I decided to join forces with design talent Laure Severac. This young lady graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and is also crazy about all things wool. Aside from the well-known silhouettes, there are three brand new designs! First of all, there is Marvellous Martine a.k.a. the oversized perfecto. This eye catching jacket is inspired by my deceased aunt, style icon and also founder of the fashion label “Anvers”. The Marvellous Martine in Fluo Yellow has proven to be your favourite as size S was sold out in no time. No worries, you can still shop size M in our flagshipstore or online. But hurry, there is only one left! Do you prefer more neutral colours? Then the Marvellous Martine in Asvalt or New Light Grey will be perfect for you. The second…
