Moon and Turtle
Preorder Moon & Turtle for 16th August 2021
Meet your new go-to designers for elevated basics. Twin sisters Kiyomi and Sachiko are masters of wearable designs for city life that revel in glorious, understated wooliness. Moon and Turtle features a collection of garments and accessories which are an astute nod towards the shared similarities and differences between twins.
Kiyomi and Sachiko’s talent to infuse unique and contemporary design details with classic knitwear styles, and I'm honoured to bring you the twins’ first collaborative collection. Moon and Turtle contains nine knit designs (4 garments, 5 accessories) which showcase an edgy urban aesthetic, reflecting the twins’ life in Toronto / Tkaronto, Canada.
Much like Kiyomi and Sachiko themselves, Moon and Turtle is truly synergic. The duality associated with identical twins is thoughtfully and intelligently embedded into every aspect of the book. From the designs, to the authors’ musings, to the title of the book itself, there’s a quiet harmony in the idea that two things or people can be visually similar but also appreciably distinct.
The patterns are gender-neutral, graded up to a 62” chest, and contain body and sleeve length adjustments in the hope that this book can be enjoyed by many knitters for years to come. Playful colourwork, paired with simply constructed garments,
Kiyomi and Sachiko’s sisterly affection for one another is clear and shines through their words and designs.
