AUTUMN_WINTER ’998 - ’999
The President’s Knit is the name of a knitted garment introduced in the Autumn_Winter ’998 -’999 season and then retaken with different processes in the years that followed. It is an innovative knitted garment that takes on the functions of a jacket owing to its detachable lining. The first of these garments was created in a double face knit, nylon chenille on the outside, cotton on the inside. Three black nylon parallel stripes on the cuff. Ends of the sleeves and bottom hem as well in black nylon. The garment takes its final colouring from garment dyeing. Detachable lightweight nylon fabric lining with water resistant polyurethane resin finish, quilted with polyester padding. The detachable lining is attached to the outer garment using a system of ties, adapted from those used in the sailing world.
