Sandra Backlund’s latest collection of handmade twisted knitwear, "Pool Position," is one that was inspired by a series of tragic occurrences in her personal life. Says Backlund:

"It was actually a sequel to the previous collection I did. It sounds kind of silly when I explain it! It was such a strange experience with the bruises collection.

I lost my grandmother and at the same time she took her last breath, I fell down the stairs. That happened one and a half weeks before I was supposed to go to Miami. It was a really dark time for me."

The Swedish designer also confesses in this Dazed Digital interview that she’s keen to do a show soon, and was swamped with invitation requests when she last exhibited in London.
