I first discovered SØSKEN Studios when Marisa Minicucci presented her FW16 collection of outerwear at Toronto Fashion Week earlier this year. I loved the streamlined silhouettes, the textures and smart tailoring. And the neutral palette — black, grey, camel and a pop of red — is perfect really.
The fabrics are beautiful, with soft plush textures, from luxe double knits to wool and alpaca blends. Later in the summer, I had a chance to preview the collection with the Montreal based designer herself. Marisa showed me her layered approach to styling. A duster jacket, like the one I'm wearing, perfectly transitions from fall to winter when layered over a fitted, lightweight down jacket. A sartorial styling trick we're all sure to love.
For this look, I paired SØSKEN Studios duster cardigan with a simple merino wool sweater by Theory, cropped trousers from Zara's sustainable collection called Join Life, and and Everlane loafers. Both Hudson's Bay and Simons are carrying SØSKEN's fall collection in store and online.
