About Izzy Lane Spring/Summer 2010
The inspiration for the Izzy Lane Spring/Summer 2010 Collection starts with the soft fine Shetland wool spun from rescued sheep, undyed in its multitude of natural colors, from the rust moorit, and blue-grey katmoget. The garments are as fine as cashmere and woven into a light summer cloth in Victorian mills, with patchworks and furrows of different patterns inspired by the Wuthering Heights landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales. Cropped 40’s silhouette skirts matched with edgy Wensleydale knits in candy colors paired with kneelength boots made from faux snake and faux croc, all approved by the Vegetarian Society.
