New London Based Knitwear Label Cats Brothers Launches

Knitwear designers Lindsay McKean & Anna Wilkinson launched their label Cats Brothers this month...

Their debut collection Crazy Homies was presented at a Day of the Dead themed event in Shoreditch alongside work by artist Lauren Baker and jewellery designers Thor & Wistle.

Cats Brothers is a woolly collaboration between two experienced designers from very different areas of the knit industry, Anna's hand knit book "Learn to Knit, Love to Knit" has just been published, and Lindsay has most recently worked with designers Omar Kashoura and William Richard Green.

Crazy Homies is a playful and colourful tribute to their favourite dead rappers with a Mexican twist, think 90s influenced west coast streetwear on the Day of the Dead. The collection features over-sized Fair Isle hoodies, beautifully beaded bandana jacquards, and a Lisa "Left Eye" intarsia masterpiece.
