I love her visionary use of medical images as surface design: Brooke Roberts draws her knitwear inspiring herself to the X rays and gets marvelous graphic effects through color and weaving.
Thanks to her experience of many years in knitwear in Italy, this rich-in-talent fashion designer knows how to mix classical yarns to those with great technical effect with a luxurious result. She combines cashmere, wool, cotton, silk, technical yarns, plastic, metallic and back-reflecting fibers.
Her collection AW11 'Calibration', with X rays films, geometries and greyscales, it
combines artistic work realized in Italy to technical and modern yarns.
With the use of camel-hair, cachemire and first quality wool bouclé, silk and 3-M backreflecting yarn, this is a marvelous fusion of luxury and high technology.
