Treasury is home to a brand new line of handmade knitwear from local designer, Warm Distractions. These lush designs are made from 100% sustainably grown bamboo yarn sourced in New England and hand-knit in the District.
The founder of Warm Distractions, Mia Lopes, also manages our sister store, Meeps. She fell in love with knitwear design during her time in New York and Milan, where she honed her craft. Mia is excited to bring a fresh look to the D.C. scene. Check out the pieces below:
Cia is modeling a semi-sheer, drop stitch tank-top with double knit straps and crochet linked hem, $75. The bamboo knit provides a silky texture and a simple, luxe drape. Styled with Treasury’s 1960′s printed shorts $36 & retro sunglasses $72
The collection uses basic shapes with thoughtful detailing — like this chunky inside out seam. The pieces are modern, versatile, and wildly comfortable.
To be worn: Day to evening with one’s own creative styling
This slinky V-Neck top fits any body with its relaxed waist and high-low hem. The thick tubular hemline is reflected in the back strap for a sleek, peek-a-boo pop. $119.
An essential layering piece, best dressed over a tonal fabric for fall or vibrant strappy top during warm-weather seasons. We used a lacey bra-let for an added textural effect
