Toronto-based bentgablenits has announced plans for a new drop featuring pre-worn Nike hoodies and crewnecks reworked through mohair adornment. Making an added cute statement, each item comes with a mini hairbrush to tame the mohair detailing as needed.
Launched in July 2019, bentgableknits was founded by Brenda Bent and Karen Gable, who run Bent Gable Design, an interior design firm responsible for locations including Toronto’s The Thompson Hotel Diner and Rosalinda. The duo partnered with family friend 24-year-old Angelo Nitsopoulos, who provides the operation with a view from sneaker culture.
Combining the of-the-moment wish for garments that don’t further tax the environment with a playful aesthetic that’s very on trend, according to Coveteur, bentgableknits has been spotted on Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Bella Hadid, Travis Scott, Drake and designer Daniel Arsham.
Bentgableknits’ Nike mohair collection will launch on December 6, 2019 at 3:00 PM EST on bentgablenits.com. These are one-off, custom items and will not stick around.
Check out some of the items included in the drop below.
