The Story of Alanui
Dreamed up by siblings Nicolo and Carlotta Oddi, this brand was conceptualized as an emotion-charged and luxurious product. The very word Alanui translates to “large path” from Hawaiian. Having started its journey as a collection built around one item, it continues to grow organically, now including accessories as well as stunning clothing items. The first article that their collection continues to grow around is a stunning, buttonless, unisex cardigan that closes with a two-tone belt and is edged with a rich fringe. There are many gorgeous variations to this pattern available.
With the goal of creating understated yet uniquely luxurious items, Alanui crafts each cardigan by hand, using fine Italian cashmere. The complete opposite of throwaway fashion, these items are made to last. The crafting process takes around seven hours of knitting, six hours of assembly, and more for hand-crafted embroideries. The amazing craftsmanship leaves nothing to be desired and anyone who loves oversized, comfortable cardigans is sure to find something they like in this line. The brand is boosting its stunning knitwear for the upcoming fall, but these cardigans are certainly a great fit for spring as well!
As the brand’s popularity continues to grow, its collection has expanded to include many types of hand-crafted accessories. Looking through what they offer, there’s certainly plenty to find, including hand-woven phone cases and belts, gorgeous tote bags, long scarves, shoes, slippers, and more. Each piece celebrates artistic expression and exceptional craftsmanship, which are qualities that appeal to many modern consumers.
