Sibling’s Kooky Knits Find A New Home At Victoria & Albert Museum

Playful knits find their place among the fine arts world.

November 04, 2014

After staging some of London Fashion Week's craziest looks and giving Barbie a full-on makeover, Sibling and its womenswear arm, Sister by Sibling, will be the subject of Victoria and Albert Museum's latest fashion-meets-art installation. As part of the museum's Fashion in Motion series, Sibling will stage four runway shows highlighting the kookiest, most avant-garde pieces from their menswear archives. Since the brand's debut in 2008, designers Cozette McCreery, Joe Bates, and Sid Barnes have quickly become infamous for transporting the age-old hobby of knitting into the 21st century. Deservedly, the knitwear crew is stoked to see their creations come to life in a fresh setting. "We're looking forward to showing audiences that today's knitwear is more than novelty Christmas jumpers and grey V-necks; that it can be fun, joyful, rebellious and young at heart," the trio said in a press release.

The Fashion in Motion: Sibling runway presentation is free to the public. Hit up V&A for tickets here. For a primer on Sibling, check out "Soft Wear," our feature on comfy clothes for the 21st century.
