Vivian Graf SS17 AnnaPaula Communications



Spring / Summer 17


Conrad Marca-Rellis abstract collages have inspired Vivian Graf to her SS17 collection. 

Conrad Marca-Relli, the abstract expressionist. The artist combining broken surfaces, oil painting and expressionistic spattering. Bold graphic shapes, mix of materials, abstract collages. A balance of simplicity and complexity.

Vivian Graf has translated this inspiration to create pieces that combine different types of yarns to create textural patterns. Tape yarn blended with classic linen yarn, mercerised cotton yarn, very fine denim type of yarn. 

The bold graphic shapes created by Marca-Relli inspire to a more loose and relaxed silhouette of the pieces. Wide . sleeves, big round necklines, deep dropped armholes, wide bold rib bottom finishings.

A balance of simplicity and complexity. A balance of different knitting techniques, creating textures and harmony.




The designer

Vivian Graf’s collections translate art into multidimensional knitwear. She is playing with knit techniques and patterns, creating unique pieces that show her interpretation of art, photography and culture.


Each collection is its own universe, inspired by a specific piece of art, photography or culture. It shows Vivian Graf’s vision, her ability to create knit pieces that bridge the gap between art and fashion.


Vivian Graf’s collections are made of precious Italian yarns and traditional craftsmanship. Every piece is handmade in Germany and Switzerland, allowing the pieces to be of highest quality.


Vivian Graf founded her namesake knitwear label in Autumn/Winter 2014, having returned to her roots in Switzerland, after graduating from Parsons the New School of Design in New York and working in knitwear design and production for well-known designer labels in New York and Berlin.
