Good evening. This is Ikeda.
It's amazing how excited the WBC is.
I feel like it's never been this exciting.
Having said that, I have no interest in baseball at all, so I have no recollection of past excitement.
It seems that just the triumphant return of a major league player would have a considerable economic effect.
It seems like there's a lot of competition for goods.
Peppermill sales this month alone are likely to be equivalent to a normal year's worth of sales.
I'm thinking of placing a bet on my own, thinking that I've probably already made enough sales for several years.
And it seems like they won their first match yesterday, so it seems like they got off to a light start.
Of course I haven't seen it.
In fact, I don't even watch the highlights.
I am not a non-citizen, so please forgive me.
SAMURAI JAPAN is off to a brisk start, and items from the 23rd SS are also starting to arrive at a quick pace. Today, we would like to introduce you to INNAT's COTTON GUERNSEY SWEATER and COTTON GUERNSEY VEST, which have a lightness that is different from the image.
COLLECTION 02 also featured Gandhi knits, but these items have a completely different impression.
The design source goes without saying.
Having said that, I can't help but say it.
As the item name suggests, it is Gandhi knit.
What kind of image do you have when you think of Gandhi knit?
Old clothes tend to feel heavy, lack softness, and don't seem to be very modern.
Contrary to that image, the finish gives off a very light feel.
The feel of the fabric and color, which are factors that make it feel light, will be discussed later, but first, let's start with the design and knitting.
The knitting method is a little complicated, but the shoulder part is purl stitched to show the pattern, and the cuffs and hem are switched from rib knitting to purl stitching to front knitting.
This will create a design that curls the sleeves and hem.
In addition, the neck is also curled.
YASHIKI's 22AW also featured the Shizuku Curl High Neck Knit, and just having it curled gives it a cute look, doesn't it?
I feel like it gives me just the right amount of relief.
It's just personal, though.
It also has a light, linen-like texture.
This crisp fabric uses air-spun yarn and is also treated with resin.
As a result, the fabric has a linen-like feel, giving it a light feel.
The thickness of the fabric is 5 gauge, which is between low gauge and medium gauge, so I think it will be easy to wear even when the temperature gets high.
It also gives off a relaxing feeling typical of INNAT.
Especially if you enjoy layering the vest with a shirt or something.
At the exhibition, designer Tani told me that this silhouette is an homage to a certain brand's knitwear.
When you say that, I think it certainly reminds me of a certain brand's knitwear.
I won't mention the name here, so please try it on and try to guess.
There are two colors: Natural and Lime green.
Natural is also a Gandhi knit made from second-hand clothing, but Lime green can be said to be unique to INNAT.
This lime green is a color that is not typical of Gandhi knits in a good sense, and I think it is one of the factors that gives it a light feel.
Of course, Natural is also light.
It looks like March will be over soon and we'll be heading into April, but I feel like I can get off to a light start in the new year by wearing these kids.
To get a light start to the new year and to lighten your heavy steps, try INNAT's COTTON GUERNSEY SWEATER and COTTON GUERNSEY VEST, which give you a sense of lightness.
