From his studio “The Armory” in Iceland, Sruli Recht creates his line with a process devoted to minimal waste. His tailoring and draping skills are exceptional, and I enjoy his concepts and one-offs. The romanticism and sense of humor in his work is charming.
For his 2013 F/W collection he enlisted the assistance of Elisa Stozyk to create a wooden textile jacket and pull over complete with the equivalent of ribbing at the collar, wrists and base of the body. Clever.
