HOME OF FIVE MONTH-LONG WINTERS, GROUND ZERO OF SNOWMAGEDDON, ORIGINATING SPOT OF LUMBERJACK CHIC. WE SCOFF AT A FOOT OF SNOW AND TRAVERSE ICE STORMS WITH APLOMB, AND WE DO IT WITH STYLE. SO IT SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE THAT ONE OF OUR GREATEST EXPORTS IS KNITWEAR. TWO BORN-AND-BRED DESIGNERS, KEVIN KRAMP AND ANNIE LARSON, HAVE BEEN MAKING WAVES ON THE INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT AS OF LATE, THANKS TO BOLD DESIGNS, STRONG WEB PRESENCES, AND LOADS OF AMBITION. WITH KRAMP’S AVANT-GARDE, SHAPE-EMPHASIZING MEN’S KNITS AND LARSON’S NOSTALGIA-DRIVEN, GRAPHIC-HEAVY PIECES, THE TWO COULDN’T HAVE MORE DISTINCT AESTHETICS. FOR THIS SPREAD, WE REIMAGINED THE TWO TOGETHER, STYLED WITH KNITS FROM PHILADELPHIA-BASED BRAND ISOBEL & CLEO. TEXT BY JAHNA PELOQUIN
