Misha + Puff designs heirloom quality, handmade knitwear for baby and children that are ethically produced with an eye towards styling. Launching in early September, the brand’s Fall Winter 2016 collection is inspired by nostalgic memories of winters on the New England seasides with influences from vintage knits, and faded photography (misha-and-puff.com).
Taking influence from nordic knitting, Misha + Puff’s FW16 collection presents unexpected color combinations with unique stitches and patterns such as checkerboard and prism, giving a fresh take on the retro styling and resulting in a wardrobe that is as adorable as functional. The brand introduces its classic styles such as the tunic dress, fisherman bloomers and suspender leggings reoccur in new warm wintery shades of nutmeg and persimmon. New additions include the snow peak poncho available in a new color-way of confetti cake and the north wind coat, a seasonal adaptation of the favorite summer beach jacket. Styles are seasonally titled with cozy names such as pinecone, saltwater and sugar maple and accessories such as the Gloucester scarf, prism bonnet & day hike booties are also available to give your little one that extra bit of warmth for their cold winter walks
Misha + Puff is designed by former stylist Anna Wallack in the US and thoughtfully handcrafted in Peru where the women who knit them are given opportunities to support their families through working from home or at a knitting center that provides meals and daycare. Designing for their kids in mind, Misha + Puff work with only the best natural fibers, the merino wool is incredibly soft yet hard wearing, holding shape better than other fibers. Wool is antibacterial and wicks moisture away from the body, so your wee one stays dry and comfy. Working with only natural dyes, their hand-dying process creates a beautiful array of colors unique to the brand. Taking pride in the pieces she chooses to knit, you will find the name of your knitter on the garment’s hang tag. When you purchase items from Misha + Puff you are contributing to this collaboration. Families working together to benefit everyone.
