24 October 2017. We're excited to introduce Fog's latest Winter collection. It will roll out online in two deliveries and feature a brand new 100% wool fabrication. Many of you are familiar with the wool/linen blend for the cooler months, but we hope you'll grow to love this new permutation. The fabric is warm, soft, and surprisingly not scratchy. The drape and weight of the wool yield structure that is modern and very wearable. For those of you who might miss the linen content, fear not. Many of the items in this Winter collection do include linen details such as the full linen lining of the Mona Coat, or the lined pockets of the Karina Tuck Pants. Designer, Yumiko Sekine chooses combinations that are in balance and ultimately highlight her two favorite materials.
Can you tell us a little about the inspiration for this collection?
I always find inspiration on the production side when I'm visiting the weaving companies and see all of the materials, wools, threads, and all of the possible colors and styles. That's where I begin creating.
The linen for Fog Linen Work is made in Lithuania. Is this true for the wool?
Yes! The woolen fabric is woven at a very old factory in Lithuania. I looked through all of the fabric samples that they had from the past and picked the 'hand' of the wool and colors from their production history.
What do you like best about the new wool?
The feel of the fabric! It's very smooth, soft, and warm. It's good quality and it's fun to mix with the linen. Using the linen for lining and other parts. The color and material work well together.
Do you have a favorite piece from this collection?
The Gemma Tuck Pants. I like the silhouette of the pants. It turned out nicely and comfortable to wear. (arriving in second delivery)
Who is this collection for?
I always design the Fog Linen Work collection for every day life--not for special occasions. But, this Winter collection turned out to be be very elegant. It's versatile and can be worn by an elegant woman for a special occasion or just every day.
