December 2017 - NATASJA HORNBY

December 01, 2017

Our December Designer of the Month is a little closer to home. Natasja Hornby is the woman behind the striking designs of Moonstruck Knits. Born in South-Africa, raised on the Dutch island of Texel, Natasja now lives and works in Amsterdam.

Although she is formally design trained and has been teaching textiles and arts for over a decade, she is still relatively new at designing knitwear. She is inspired by the life in the city - its flamboyant people, its art, and its architecture - but also by wind-swept Texel.

Natasja’s designs are wearable, unpretentious and fuss free, but never boring or generic. To her, knitwear should be an eye-catcher, but also a shield against the weather.

Until the end of the month we have three gorgeous Moonstruck Knits samples in-store, Neruda, Tycho and Maan. Make the time to come and see them, they are worth the trip!
