Who: Larisa Laivins
What: Sweater specialist, creative consultant and maker of things
Wear: Jeans, t-shirts and lots of CARDIGAN!
Stripes or Solids? I love some stripes, but I’m in a solid cycle at the moment.
First cardigan memory?
My grandpa’s letterman sweater from Oklahoma A&M in the 30s. It was a black V-neck cardigan with 3 orange stripes on the sleeve and “W. Eppler” embroidered on the inside. I thought it was the coolest thing ever, and I was so excited to finally be entrusted to wear it in junior high.
Grandpa, Dad and boyfriend have all had cardigans go missing.
I like a VN Cardigan with a boyfriend fit. I wear ‘em with skinny dark denim and an easy stretched out t-shirt or over a short dress.
If I were a cardigan, I would be…
Probably the VN Cardigan described above - made out of old school cashmere or nice merino.
