Designer Spotlight: Cardigan by Lynne Hiriak

Imagine my joy when I came across Cardigan by Lynne Hiriak. This only feeds into my cardigan obsession, you know. Having worked as a design consultant for Thakoon, Derek Lam, and Lela Rose, Hiriak set out to create cozy knits and cardigans with just-right prices. Her items, found at Barneys, eLUXURY, and Saks, hover between $145 and $695, with most in the $200 to $300 range. Not bad for a classic knit you will have for decades. The designer explains: "We do offer a lot of products in a range that is affordable. People say we're a fashion line and we're a product line. We're utilitarian."

As someone who is is cardigan-obsessed, my cardigan collection ranges from cheapy H&M ones to cashmere White + Warren ones. Both can deliver the buttoned-up or laid-back style of the omnifunctional cardi, but this Cardigan is going on my Christmas wish list.
