This week, luxury concept label Wardrobe.NYC has released its latest collection of women’s summer knit essentials, titled R09 Stretch.

“Knitwear is a foundation to my summer wardrobe and something we wanted to realize in a clear and concise way,” Centenera said in a statement. “I love knitwear because it travels well, it always looks polished, it’s flexible and adaptable, so [it] can be worn on different body shapes, and in different ways.”
“Stretch introduces new techniques for Wardrobe.NYC; we wanted a matte, dry textured knit that performs, and really holds you in. It took time to develop the right balance between holding shape, making the wearer feel secure, and being comfortable to wear,“ Goot added.
The four-piece wardrobe, priced at $1,000, includes a knit bandeau, sleeve, back-zip legging and the brand’s debut footwear style — a leather, suede and Neoprene platform sandal — while the eight-piece wardrobe, priced at $2,500, additionally includes a knit cardigan, T-shirt, skirt and dress (both available in mini and midi lengths). Each ready-to-wear style is available in sizes 2XS to XL and is additionally available to be purchased as separates.
