In her fifth season, former lawyer now emerging fashion designer Myrrhia Resneck, compliments the expressive qualities of her womenwear line with the release of a fashion forward men's collection. Menswear consists of crew and v-neck patterned pullovers, hi neck commander sweaters with reclaimed wooden buttons, stylish knit beanies, and buckle cowls-- functional, yet edgy, alternatives to the traditional long tailed scarf.
Materials used include 100% super soft worsted merino from Springvale, Maine and organic wool from Brooks, California-- sourced only 90 miles from Myrrhia’s headquarters in Oakland. Previous collections have explored un-dyed organic California colorgrown cotton by Foxfibre and sustainable tencel harvested from eucalyptus trees. Because of the high quality and natural origin of the fibers, all of the garments are wrinkle-resistant and easy to care for, eliminating the need for toxic dry cleaning treatments.
With compassion for people and the environment, Myrrhia Fine Knitwear garments are produced through a seamless Stoll knitting machine and manufactured in Oakland, California. Each garment is hand finished and linked, and created exclusively from sustainable materials grown and spun in the USA.
"I see so much untapped potential in humanity– potential for joy and connection, for scientific exploration, for spiritual exploration” says Resneck. “My company isn’t just about pretty clothes, or just about me and my point of view stylistically, it’s about self-actualization for all of us. I hope to be part of the antidote to a culture who treats it’s people–and the environment that sustains them–as disposable.”
