Degen

THIS AMERICAN SLICE
New York: Somewhere at the intersection of Jeremy Scott, Koos van den Akker and Holly Hobbie, there exists Degen. Designer Lindsay Degen represents a new generation of knitting enthusiasts – ones who are fed a daily diet of pop culture and irony and who get their kicks from random acts of yarn bombing. It is no surprise that the young designer is a product of Central Saint Martins (by way of Rhode Island School of Design), her collection hitting all the hallmarks that define the London scene, from kooky themes (pizza, anyone?) to rave-inspired color palettes and silhouettes. While the look was London, Degen was actually paying homage to DIY and American street culture, where bad taste often becomes good – especially when underneath it lies a strong command of craft and a wry sense of humor. —Nivara Xaykao
