Who Is Lord Von Schmitt?
Lord von Schmitt is known as the king of rainbow-colored crocheted clothing, which include undergarments, entire bodysuits, and parasols.
The creations can be seen all over the world. Schuyler Ellers founded the business to combine visually striking colors with textured fabrics such as crochet. He is, if you will, primarily responsible for making crochet cool again. Lord Von Schmitt's collection includes lingerie, shorts, coats, robes, onesies, and umbrellas. Even infant garments are knitted in more understated pastels.
After finishing his education, Ellers moved to Barcelona and began working as a costume designer for low-budget films. He designed the costumes for these films using items he found in thrift stores and other charitable organizations. After being trained by his housemates, Ellers rapidly became proficient in knitting and sewing.
His explorations of secondhand stores led him to discover Afghan rugs flowing with brilliant colors and intricate designs. Instead of considering them to be crocheted blankets, Ellers saw them as works of folk art that artists had created in the past. He made the most of the chance he was given by transforming them into sculptures that could be worn. 2010 was the year that witnessed the beginning of the birth of Lord Von Schmitt through these events.
