Bisoux - kisses!
I find this design a tiny bit french. In the meaning of elegancy. When I pull the Bisoux-sweater over my head I feel a little more sophisticated and elegant than in real life. You can detect from my pictures my TRUE Lifestyle: boots for rain and sandy beaches, long walks... Lucky for you I do not put up any photos of my outworn jacket that I have been wearing all winter for beach-walks!
When I was living in France during the 90ties I was a more elegant version of myself! It came quite naturally; most french women are elegant, and the clothes in the shops were made to match. Coming back to Scandinavia again I found I couldn't use my wardrobe of dresses and tailored suits, and pretty quick I was back to normal: wearing jeans and sweaters. Still I dream of those clothes.....
With my Bisoux-pullover I can match the two worlds; my desire of french elegancy and my beloved rain-boots!
The Bisoux top is made of a gorgeous silk/merino blend from BC GARN: Silkbloom Fino. Great drape and beautiful colors! I don't like messing up such a nice wool with too much details. Bisoux is kept simple, but with it's patterned front it gets a Little more interesting than a simple boyfriend pullover. It is a simple knit as well, made in the round and bottom-up with only k and p stiches to get hold on. Sleeves are made top-down which is very convenient for deciding the right length.
