As the warmer breezes arrive, so do new and exciting fiber collections that offer an amazing array of yarns. As we fill the shelves with all of this wonderment, the creative minds at String begin imagining spectacular new designs, each one combining yarns in a different fashion.

Lincoln Center Coat at String Yarns

The String Opera Coat is a unique collaboration of color and texture similar to what we see in the store windows up and down Madison Ave, Lidia Karabinech was particularly inspired by this season’s Missoni collection.

"We wanted to make a cool, but very cosmopolitan piece that one could easily wear from day into night.” - Lidia

Lincoln Center Opera Coat at String Yarns

The top panel is worked up in our String Exclusive Breeze yarn, which adds structure to the sweater and perfect balance to the fluid drape of the lower panel.

TSC’s Stella, Tandem and Flora yarns are worked in coordinating colors highlighting the hills and valleys of the chevron pattern which flows so beautifully into the leaf lace pattern. Flora adds an elegant touch of twinkle, giving the garment an added dimension.

The sweater is delicately over-sized, one-size fits most. Lidia’s signature shoulder shaping along with the slim 3/4 sleeve balances the proportion of the body and together come together in a sleek and flattering piece. I-cord edging is the perfect finishing touch to offer a piece with couture details that are very feminine and on trend.
