The Autumn 2017 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly is here!
This issue is guest-edited by designer and writer Juju Vail, and the themes and motifs throughout reflect her interest in a fully handmade wardrobe. In many cases, the knit garments are modeled with sewn garments Vail herself created.
Anna Maltz contributes an essay on slow fashion, a thought-provoking, political piece that critiques the class-signifying language around capsule wardrobes.
Paging through this cozy-looking issue, I spotted a few familiar yarns: Shibui Pebble and Silk Cloud in Nancy Marchant’s “Abusson” scarf, and Brooklyn Tweed Loft in Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s “Soumak” mitts.
Each issue of Pom Pom wraps up with a recipe of some kind, and this hot toddy perfectly suits the season. Here in North Carolina, it’s not quite hot toddy weather yet, but we keep telling ourselves: cool weather is coming!
