More About ARNE & CARLOS
Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison launched their ARNE & CARLOS knitwear line in 2007, gaining notice with their witty reworkings of classic Scandinavian motifs--for example, intricately patterned sweaters festooned with space invaders rather than reindeer. Their brand hit big when Rei Kawakubo of cult fashion house Commes des Garçon commissioned a mini collection in 2008, followed by a line of garments for US-based Urban Outfitters in 2009, as well as Dale of Norway. ARNE & CARLOS were motivated to empower others to recreate their fabulous designs, so they have backburnered their ready-to-wear lines and instead travel internationally, teaching knitting classes and promoting their five books, which show knitting-lovers how to recreate ARNE & CARLOS' unique knitwear patterns with step-by-step instructions.
Their books are now published in fourteen languages and have sold almost half-a-million copies worldwide. ARNE & CARLOS have starred in features in numerous online and print publications, as well as appeared on television morning and talk shows in Scandinavia and Europe. They are charming, personable, quirky, and sophisticated--superb conversationalists and the utmost professionals.
