The founder of Stutterheim raincoats launches luxury knitwear label John Sterner.
Alexander Stutterheim kicked off the rubberised rain mac trend with the launch of his outerwear brand Stutterheim in 2010, which is now sold in 1,000 stores worldwide. He has now created John Sterner, a “high-end, slow fashion” unisex knitwear brand that Stutterheim says has “an eco and human responsibility woven into it”.
Launched this month, the brand debuts with the Antidote series of heavy wool roll-neck jumpers inspired by fishermen’s knits. Handmade in Sweden from wool from Stutterheim’s own flock of sheep, each jumper takes one week to produce and is created by a group of refugee knitters.
These luxurious launch jumpers will retail for around €1,000 (£897), while a more affordable merino wool line and cashmere series are in the pipeline. John Sterner will be available to wholesale stockists.
