Spring 2023 Manos del Uruguay Collection

Manos del Uruguay x Julia Farwell-Clay

In planning this collection and looking over the Manos del Uruguay palette, one can’t help but think of the kaleidoscope of sugar spun colors of the candy counter, the fun of choosing, and the dizzying joy of rainbow gobstoppers, pastel taffy chews, pink bubblegum and bright red shoestring licorice to cherish for what, an hour before they’re devoured?

Nostalgic yet modern, this collection is designed with entertainment and wearability in mind: each piece brings a festive need-to-have layer for those in between spring and summer temperatures in shapes of the moment.

Colorwork rings are easier than they look and graded according to size in this playful top-down spring sweater.
