It's finally Spring! And there's no better time to share our styling series with you. This series demonstrates how our classic knits can be styled with your existing wardrobe staples. We hope you are left feeling inspired to explore the countless ways to wear your beloved Francie knit. 



The Erin vest is one of our most versatile knits.

We imagine it worn over a delicate undergarment during those warmer days. The Erin is an ideal layering piece; paired with a sheer, long sleeve turtleneck, the fuzziness of the mohair creates a beautiful glittering effect as the fibres catch the light. A perfect ensemble for girl's night. 

Made ethically in Melbourne from our signature blend of Italian mohair.




The Whisper Shrug is the most recent addition to our ever evolving collection of sustainable knitwear and it's destined for Spring/Summer layering.
Like a gentle whisper, it maintains the elegance and simplicity of your look, offering warmth and comfort without interruption. 
We layered the Whisper Shrug over the Erin Vest, for a modern take on the twin-set. Another classic pairing; the sumptuous Shrug worn over your favourite silk number.

The nostalgic Star Lace Vest evokes a feeling of coming home, perhaps it was our grandmother who knitted a little lace vest for our younger self.
We are forever inspired by the patience and creativity of our ancestors, and so our act of homage lives in the Star Lace vest.
Our go-to layering combination is a lacey blouse or collared shirt, the knitted lace detail of the vest is highlighted when a contrast garment is worn under, have a play with your favourite colour combinations.

Sustainably knitted in Melbourne from our trans-seasonal Extra-fine Merino Wool.




Buttoned, un-buttoned, belted or open. The choice is yours. There’s no denying the functionality and simplicity of our beloved classic, The Mist Cardigan. 

We simply style it over a summer dress, or tucked into our favourite jeans. This time, we added a belt to elevate the look. Anything goes when it comes to the Mist Cardi.  

Thoughtfully produced in Melbourne from our signature blend of Italian mohair.




Another new addition to the Francie collection is the ever-so delicate Droplet Knit. It is the sophisticated, elegant older sister of the feather knit. What sets these sisters apart is the generous boat neckline, slight bell shaped cuff and of course, the lace detail.

This piece is perfect for an evening out. The sheerness of the mohair, coupled with the lace structure creates a sensuous, luxurious look and feel. Worn with your favourite Lacey bra, sparkly top, over a simple bias dress, or worn with lush, silk pants. The Droplet knit is an effortless way to elevate your evening look.
