M.I.A. FOUND: Hand-Knit Lingerie
Jul 12, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
Lindsay Degen has been found knitting lingerie by hand in New York City. Find out why.
THE MAKE: Hand knit, and she means it to be thick.
THE LOOK: Celebrates the female form with a sense of humor about the human body. Thick shapes lend the pieces to be considered outerwear as well, hence a line of sweaters launching this Fall.
THE COOL FACTOR: Lindsay Degen practices what she refers to as binge knitting, based on what she learned from Grandma at age 3 (and a Central Saint Martins/RISD education), where she's knit pieces like three-legged pants and nipple bras.
Get it from DEGEN. The undies are $200, and the bra, $175.
