Maritime Sweaters and Good Design
Andersen-Andersen wanted to marry the Danish design philosophy and the maritime tradition by constructing a sweater that would last longer than any other – without pilling, and without losing shape. It took a year of relentless searching and experimentation. Andersen‑Andersen went from spinning mill to spinning mill, eventually deciding to develop their own yarn using worsted, extra‑spun, long‑fibre merino wool. Knitters told them to lower their expectations. But they persevered. The addition of a machine‑knitted triangular pattern by the neckline meant they were finally able to create a rounded collar while keeping the symmetrical shape.
Andersen‑Andersen’s flagship store is situated directly across from the new Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen, nestled in a storefront on the main floor of the Ny Christiansborg building. Adhering to the Danish design principles in both simplicity and functionalism, the Andersen‑Andersen flagship store is outfitted with classic pieces from House of Finn Juhl.
