Under the design stewardship of Pierangelo D'Agostin, J.Lindeberg has continued its endeavour of redefining modern classics with a Scandinavian point of view. By respecting old traditions and combining them with the technical advancements of today, D'Agostin has helped to create collections to covet. Having recently had the pleasure to talk through the SS11 collection with the man himself, it was clear how important fabric development was to both his design process and the energy of the revitalised label.

FABRIC SWATCH PROTOTYPE
Tokyo 08 12 2010
"I have just arrived from Beijing. I have been developing cashmere yarns and have been designing knit items for more than twenty years.
I met Mr. Duan who has just come back from the Inner Mongolia. He brought me a trial of the finest raw yarns in pure cashmere, I have never seen.
I was thrilled. This cashmere is shed from the goats living at an altitude of 3000 and 3500 meters in the sustainable ecosystem.
We made a swatch and it was like a Shahtoosh. Now he is testing a prototype. I wish to receive it in time for Christmas."
