Ever thought of wearing knitted shirts in the summer? Muriel Hoffs did and it’s FAB. To be more dramatic, she changed the whole perspective of knitted clothing. By mixing silk thread with wool she created this soft, cloudy, stretchy and supa sexy woolen shirt. making it possible to wear wool in the summer while looking hot as funk.!
The first thoughts that pops into my head when I think of knitted clothes are the people who for some reason decided to make an overly big and very itchy sweater that stays hidden deep in the closet. That’s not what you do with a Muriel Hoffmann, this is a show and tell shirt. She handmade the yellow version of the shirt especially for me, and other colourful shirts that you can find in her shop Prins Hendrikkade 8b — hinting!!. She is super nice too, so whenever you’re in the neighbourhood check out her shop. Drop my name… you never know what could happen..!!
The outfit is sexy, classy and Afrique. I bought the pants in the Albert Cuypmarket in a shop called Noor. It’s a cute shop with great tutu’s and colourful. On the pants I sewed the headhunters necklace I stole from my BF. I didn’t want anything to cover the shirt. To finish off the outfit, I matched my “Balenciaga” Ikea bag with my headscarf. The sunglasses are from Okkie Eyewear, which you can find at the Waterlooplein Flea Market.
