I’ve been looking for a new scarf for a quite some time, but never found anything that I’ve been obsessed about until I saw the hand-knit pieces from Ikou Tschüss. The aesthetic is focused on handwork with various colors that blends so well together to my eyes and playful tones that make me want to smile. Spending a lovely afternoon with one of the company’s designer, Carmen D’Apollino, was certainly a delight as she reminisced about her interest in knitting since childhood and showed me her upcoming masterpieces (yes, they are amazing). By the end of the day, I’ve come to realize that the juxtaposition between Carmen’s cheerful personality and vivid vision reflects her passionate work with Ikou Tschüss. And while these are limited pieces, I’m hoping to make peace with my current obsession and pick up something for myself soon.
