The collection, which was a collaborative effort between the supermodel and knitwear brand Iris von Arnim, includes a range of granddad cardigans, knitted dresses and boyfriend jumpers – each of which Claudia designed with her own tastes in mind.
Claudia told Hello! magazine: “When deciding to launch my cashmere collection it was important to create something true to my personal sense of style and aesthetic, where I would want to wear every piece and be proud of what I was offering to other women. The model also revealed that her inspiration behind the cashmere collection was the woodlands that she walked in as a child in Germany. “My inspiration is the forest and its dark side. It’s not about the cute fox, more the fox eating its prey and pebbles lying on the forest floor that could turn out to be spiders.”
This new project means that Claudia won’t be returning to the catwalk anytime soon, as she wants to devote all her time to the new knitwear venture. When asked about the lack of plans to return to modelling, Claudia said: “I’d much rather be working on this new project anyway. I want to meet all the press and buyers personally – it’s that kind of project.”
A catwalk without Claudia is like a day without sunshine! Come back to us soon.
