Trine Lindegaard’s Sweatshirts Go Deep


There's a really wonderful randomness to Trine Lindegaard’s collections—colors that shouldn't quite go together but do, patterns that clash expertly—but as Style Salvage's menswear head Steve Salter points out, everything is actually very carefully considered. The Danish-bred designer has shown an affinity for working with West African textile artisans and manufacturers in the past, but for fall, she worked with a initiative called Fine Cell Work that commissions prison inmates throughout the UK to work on embroidery and needlework for some of these incredible sweatshirts. One guy in particular, Ziga, came up with the awesome bleeding hearts on the black sweatshirt below, and Lindegaard let the inmates do mostly as they pleased: "I wanted it to be really free for them," she says. "The first workshop centered around happiness, and I wanted it to come from their point of view, evolve out of their interests, which are so mixed." Check out a more detailed look over at Style Salvage.
