Knitwear by Laura Newton

‘I’ve always been drawn to knitwear because it can tell a story,’ says the Los Angeles-based British knitwear designer Laura Newton 

‘Knitwear is so affected by the designer and the maker, and you can feel that energy through its tactility and craftsmanship. It makes you feel like you’ve picked up something special.’ 
Newton realised her fondness for a knit as a teenager, when she would naturally gravitate towards woollens when shopping in vintage stores. But she never thought such sartorial affection would lead to a career. ‘I wanted to be a painter originally,’ says Newton. ‘I studied it at school and worked in oils a lot, which inspired a deep interest in colour and texture.’ It was during a stint of research while studying at Central Saint Martins that led her to the textiles department and the rest, as they say, is history.
