Most may think architecture was simply in Tommy Zung’s blood. It’s a fair assumption, particularly with architects like Thomas T.K. Zung for a father, and Buckminster Fuller for a godfather. Fuller (or Bucky as Zung calls him), is widely considered to be the father of the geodesic dome – having popularized the structure’s use – and is one of the most influential neo-futurist architects of all time, was a major figure in Zung’s childhood. His father, a student of Fuller’s, had made a name for himself at Edward Durell Stone, where, among other major projects, he helped design the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, the New Orleans International Trade Mart, and United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, before merging his own practice with Fuller’s to form Buckminster Fuller, Sadao, and Zung.

Lynne Hiriak owns more sweaters than anyone you know. Being forced to wear sweaters almost every day during her formative years, it’s no surprise her personal collection currently hovers around 200. Throughout her professional career, Hiriak has become something of an expert on the garment, honing her specialty during her time as a knitwear director at Michael Kors, and sharing that knowledge as a consultant to labels like Derek Lam and Ralph Rucci. Outside of her consulting work, Hiriak runs Cardigan New York, her own boutique label specializing in knitwear and ready to wear pieces. A long time resident of New York City, she recently spoke with LASTBLOG about her love of sweaters, her experiences collaborating with major fashion labels and her evolving relationship with the city she calls home.
