Franca Sozzani selects Sandra Backlund for Protégé Project
Jan '08
A 2004 graduate of Stockholm's Beckmans School of Design, Sandra Backlund is a tricot artist who assembles her knits by hand in three-dimensional collages, sculpture mode.

Her style of working and the magic of her creations – authentic works of art – have both earned her major awards (e.g. at the Hyeres Festival International De Mode & De Photographie) and attracted the attention of the international press.

Sandra was chosen by Franca Sozzani, editor in chief of Italian Vogue, for the Protégé Project:an ideal showcase for signaling, through Sandra's talent, the newest direction in knitwear.

Sandra Backlund's collection for the Protégé Project:
The human form as the starting point - to reinvent, underline, camouflage. Through various artisanal techniques, Sandra Backlund takes knits to unknown heights, enveloping the body in supersoft Merino wools.

For Fall/Winter 2009, she envisions a surreal, magical, magnificent total look in tricot.

Finally freeing knits of a classic mannish connotation, the Swedish designer revisits the genre with a spiritual, intimist collection making use of the most precious Australian Merino wool yarns.

Key colours in her palette: a warm powder pink and an intense dark red.
