Fashion Friday is all Telluride's Two Skirts spotting trends and highlighting designers worth noting, then bringing it all down to a local level. This week fashionista Ashley Deppen focuses on Mischa Lampert.
Alright already. I don't want to wish away the summer either, but Lampert's chunky wool hats are special: hand knit wool head gear that act like winter armor, but also have great style. Her Sailor Fur number with its slightly conical shape makes you look like a character out of "Lord of the Rings." And I mean that in the very cute elfin sense. The earflaps on the Nolita model insulate you from the cold – and the world.
And if you are a green crusader and fashion leader, not an oxymoron, Lampert uses only organic wool that is naturally dyed (sourced from Holland where she is from), then she hand-spins the wool so no need for electricity.
Artsy cool and sustainable. What more could a girl want?
Maybe a few more days of summer without rain.
