How refreshing to see a slow knitwear line, hand-knit in the US and made from responsibly produced wool. Lately I feel too fatigued by the constant cycle of fashion, especially the fast fashion that ends up trickling down into distilled trends. Trends bore me. What excites me is a brand emerging like Âme Debout, something slow, thoughtful, practiced. It feels much more "now" than the latest off the runway.
