Knitwear is no longer just for Winter. We’re excited about brands that are bringing high fashion sensibilities to the intimacy of knitwear. In the hands of these innovators, knitwear becomes sleek, edgy, and contemporary. Let’s explore the work of some designers who are bringing attention to cut, fit, symmetry and gritty color palettes to knitwear.

Label Under Construction has a limited distribution at select boutiques worldwide. The brand has a flair for bringing urban updates to classic knitwear looks. Label Under Construction uses intricate weaving and finishing techniques to give shape and texture to each style. Every piece is numbered and labeled to show its true exclusivity. Let’s explore some examples.
