Lars Andersson

Draped in rich stratum yarns of cashmere, cotton and silk, the Lars Andersson S/S 2015 collection makes its Caribbean debut. Now available for purchase inside the Sanara Tulum hotel, the beautifully un-constructed hand knitted capsule is pulled from the finest spun-yarn mills and produced overseas in Nepal.

Founded by Sweden native Lars Andersson, a pure artisan at heart, the S/S collection was made for the beach chic and city dwelling individual. Dedicated to only the finest in craftsmanship, the insouciant style is not designed for everyone. The basic and ensembly challengedneed NOT apply.

Dark colors and breezy cool knits touch softly on the skin. Featuring genderless pieces that are unique in style, as they are to the individual. A sleek wrap hoodie for him or her is adorned with a simple all-over pin. While oversized T-shirt dresses can be worn to and from, any and everywhere. The Lars Andersson collection is the perfect item for traveling, no matter who or where the destination. Just wait until you get your hands on one!
