The closest you’ve ever come to knitting is letting your cat play with a ball of yarn. So when it comes to fashion, you leave the designing to the experts.
Notably, Tom Scott NYC, a former RL accessories guru-turned-knitwear designer whose spring/summer collection won’t leave you unraveling as you walk down the street.
Scott, who is inspired by everything from anatomy to topography, chose the film The Red Desert as his most recent muse, focusing on the idea of controlled chaos. The result is a collection of asymmetrical lines and loosely draped fabric that complement the female form.
Unusual shapes — a pleated tank, a crooked tube dress — bring life to the neutral color palette (beige, taupe, black, white, gray). Made of cotton and cashmere, each garment creates a silhouette of comfort and ease. So you can wear yours freely.
Without bitching about stitching.
Available at Ikram, 873 North Rush Street, between Delaware Place and Chestnut Street (312-587-1000). To see styles, go to tomscottnyc.com.
