Designer John Whitledge of Trovata announces a new knitwear collection, Birds of Paradis by Trovata, celebrating Whitledge’s greatest passion; a dedication to continually exploring faraway lands and translating the rich tapestry of these varied adventures into his design vernacular.
A mix of classic silhouettes and timeless pieces in bright, colorblocked tonals make up much of the autumn/winter line, while stripes continue to be a signature Trovata theme. Tweed yarns of 100% lamb and merino wool are given a special wash, for an extra soft and lofty hand.
Whitledge’s journeys across the world are now coming to fruition with Birds of Paradis. Each season, Whitledge will explore a new destination and culture, and will translate his journey into a range of knitwear. “Knitwear is a category that I strongly relate to – it gives a sense of security, a sense of time, place and memory. Knitwear to me represents family and is one of the few items of clothing that can be handed down from generation to generation,” states Whitledge.
