As winter nears, knit up at Saved by Obsolete
As sweater weather nears, antiquarian Ray Azoulay, founder of antique furniture and fine art gallery Obsolete, is introducing a new shop devoted to knits. A collaboration with Sean McNanney, of Williamsburg-based textile line Saved, Saved by Obsolete will stock everything from opera gloves embellished with embroidered rings to hats with a third eye to a Dorian Gray peacock-print throw—all created by McNanney from sustainably sourced cashmere, camel hair and Mongolian yak down. The inventive range’s designs are customizable and, what’s more, they are helping to “rejuvenate an entire handcrafted business in Mongolia,” says Azoulay. 11270 Washington Blvd., Culver City, 310-399-0024; obsoleteinc.com.
