Peter Jensen A/W 09 "JYTTE"

Peter Jensen's A/W 09 collection is in store now. This season, Jensen's tale is about his Aunt Jytte, who, he relates, "owned a chip shop and cab company in the capital of Nuuk, Greenland, and liked fashion in the seventies." He dedicated this collection to her "because the Danish government paid for me to go to Greenland and the Faeroe Islands to research." Higlights from the collection are chunky knit whale sweaters, beaded cardigans, woolly double-bobble hats (a seal with ears?), over blouses and the "Greenland pattern" printed on silk tops.
