ANDERSEN-ANDERSEN is a family owned company founded in 2009 by product developer Cathrine Lundgren-Andersen and art director Peter Kjær-Andersen. It all started from the idea of reinterpreting a durable and classic sailor sweater. The focus at ANDERSEN-ANDERSEN is to do one thing, and do it well.
The limited collection of knitwear is inspired by Denmark’s rich maritime history, and created using the concept of the traditional navy sailor sweater. ANDERSEN-ANDERSEN developed a signature merino wool yarn, made specifically for knitting their sweaters. The extra spun yarn gives the knitwear its resilience and unique quality.
ANDERSEN-ANDERSEN has quickly become a staple for maritime enthusiasts and fashion lovers alike. The modern take on a traditional sailor sweater has garnered international acclaim for quality and craftsmanship strengthened by a collaboration with Monocle magazine. Today, ANDERSEN-ANDERSEN knitwear is sold in notable shops around the world.
