Fashion Made in Luxembourg: Manalena x Mamie & Moi


I'm finally back with a new designer piece made in Luxembourg! I've yet again teamed up with the lovely Maddalena, designer at her own brand Manalena, to show you one of her recent creations. And this time she made it even more local by working with the "Mamie & Moi" solidarity brand. Mamie & Moi, French for "Grandma & Me", employs elderly ladies who knit adorable children's clothes. And finally there's something for us adults, too as Mamie & Moi knitted this oversized sweater designed by Maddalena.
For her design the Italian-Luxembourgish designer got inspired by different kinds of wool, natural elements, various textures and sand shades. As you can see on the photos there is a really cool rib knit detail on the sleeves which gives the sweater a special twist. I felt really comfortable and cosy wearing it and I particularly liked the voluminous sleeves and the transparency of the knit.
If you like to know more about the brand Manalena, you can check my previous posts about it here, here and here.











With this post about a local brand, I also want to speak a bit about the Fashion Revolution Week that is currently going on. It was initiated be the Fashion Revolution organization to raise awareness for the people who make our clothes. We should definitely ask ourselves more often "Who made my clothes?" and also encourage local producers who are transparent about how they work.
