We Didn’t See Matty Bovan’s Next Collaboration Coming 25.1.2018
Enter Wool and The Gang. The brand known for their novice-friendly knitting kits are backing Bovan for his solo outing, which will debut on Friday at 6pm. A knitting kit collaboration will follow, so that fans can create their own bespoke Matty Bovan piece.
“Young designers are the future of this industry and their talent needs to be nurtured,” Wool and the Gang founder Jade Harwood told Vogue. Having kept a keen eye on Bovan’s approach to modern knitwear over the last few years, Harwood felt that supporting him in the pivotal early stages made for a seamless pairing. “We’re so pleased to welcome Matty to our gang, as he really is a perfect fit and an inspiration for other designers.I am a big fan of their kits and yarn and so when this opportunity came about it was perfect and organic for me. It’s exciting,” Bovan, who was taught to knit by his Grandma aged 11 told Vogue. “I have been so lucky to receive an amazing amount of support on so many different levels from this industry and I am beyond grateful. I am so excited for this show and can’t wait to share what I have been working on. They are producing yarns of such beautiful quality – materials and colours – I feel privileged to be implementing them into my work.
