Spiga 2 is an innovative project headed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Now in its third year, the boutique in central Milan, Via Spiga specializes in distributing a pick of promising emerging designers. Dolce&Gabbana want to support emerging talents by giving them visibility and retail space in an area they would fins difficult to penetrate at the start. This season we’ll focus on some of our favourites. This week: Alice Palmer.
Alice Palmer is a London based knitwear designer looking to break boundaries with yarn. Her collections are dynamic, covetable and mainly inspired by art and architecture. Alice got her BA in Knitted Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art, and then she went onto her MA at the Royal College of Art in London.
Alice’s continued fascination with both the man made and natural world has lead her to create collections with varied inspirations: from fossils to Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and David Bowie.
