Before the fashionable yarn brand Wool and the Gang and even before celebs started toting needles, designer Wenlan Chia reinvented knitting with her chunky hoodies and sweater dresses under the name Twinkle. Over the last decade, Wenlan's evolved it into a complete lifestyle brand, marking its 10th anniversary with a Twinkle by Wenlan pop-up shop in NYC's East Village that opens next week.
Presenting a cohesive mix of old and new items from both wardrobe and home, the temporary boutique will include the current fall and holiday 2009 collections, alongside reissued limited edition pieces of notable items such as the Fox turtleneck sweater dress and Unicorn crew neck sweater (pictured above). Exclusives like a double-sided purple wool jacket and black wool shirt dress round out the attire, while knitted holiday ornaments and the popular Milan mat (pictured top left) represent the Twinkle Living department.
