Jill Sander

Today I am sharing with you my last knitwear report for spring/summer 2019 season. Milan and Paris designers presented their collections during these past two weeks and I couldn’t resist hunting for knitwear pieces in each of the shows.

Les Copains played with neutral colors, stripes and contrasting materials – if you look closely you will see sparkling golden threads contrasting with white.

Tod’s “drew” geometrical patterns with intarsia, whether Jil Sander quiet literally drew on a piece of fabric and attached it to the sweater.

Knitwear Review. New York/London FW, Spring/Summer 2019

Knitwear Review. New York/London, Spring/Summer 2019. The Gift Of Knitting.

Cushnie

This September designers from all over the world are showing their collections for Spring/Summer 2019 season. I always browse through the shows to filter out knitwear pieces and look at knitting and crochet techniques from a different point of view. Today I put together a review of knitwear pieces that caught my attention from New York and London fashion weeks.

Ulla Johnson is reinterpreting a classic granny crochet square in colorful tops and dresses; plays with textured ruffles and mixes knitting with patterned fabric.

Burst of color by Prabal Gurung. I loved how different techniques are being introduced in these sweaters – dipped in color classic sweater, mix of textured knit stitches and stripes, mix of different materials on a slightly oversized drop shoulder pullover.

I was very pleased to see different technique used to create the dresses – crochet, metallic yarns, classic simple stockinette stitch.

Those two knit dresses were particular interesting for me to look at – I love the construction and how wearable they are! Classic silhouette with a front split by Mara Hoffman. And such a cool dress with uneven hem by PH5 – love the visual effect the stipes create!

Knitwear Review. London/Milan FW, Fall 2018.

Knitwear Review. London/Milan Fashion Weeks, Fall 2018

Knit pullover with intarsia and sequins by Brunello Cucinelli

For the second knitwear review of Fall 2108 season I browsed Milan and London runway reports to filter the knit pieces that seem interesting enough to look closely at.

Neutrals. Love this trend – beige and off white seemed to be prevailing in knitwear in many designers’collections.

Love this presentation by Central Saint Martins (one of the most famous art and design education centers based in London). The white dress is my favorite – if you look closely you will see that it is entirely knit in simple stockinette stitch, but with the use of yarns of different weight and textures – starting at the neckline with fine gauge and finger weight yarn the dress gradually transitions to a more bulky gauge and thicker thread.

Total knitwear looks –  sweaters + knit skirts in stockinette, cables and seed stitch.

The tendency of combining casual knitwear and more elevated pieces started in New York continues in Milan – classic shapes, simple colorwork and some sparkling!

Colorwork. You will find it all – stripes, intarsia, fair isle..

Wrapped in knitwear in color and neutrals.

Extremely oversize sweaters.

Interesting shapes – from classic pullovers to puffed exaggerated shoulders and layering of knit fabric.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Knitwear Review. London Fashion Week, Spring ’18

Knitwear Review. London Fashion Week. Spring/Summer 2018

Cardigan layers by Palmer Harding

London designers were very diverse as usual – there was everything from proper suits to absolutely crazy clothes-sculptures in all kinds of materials. The same tendency was reflected in knitwear pieces – classic beige sweaters, unusual constructions, unexpected mix of materials and colors – you’ll see it all.

Emilia Wickstead, Daks and Margaret Howell offer proper tops and classic sweaters paired with casual pants and skirts. Simple, practical and comfortable are probably the best words to describe these pieces.

But this kind of description of knitwear definitely doesn’t apply to the rest of the knitwear items that appeared during this season in London. The rest is pushing the boundaries in many forms.

Teatum Jones and Ports 1961 are changing the idea of how you can wear sweater sleeves.

Knitwear Review. London Fashion Week. Spring/Summer 2018

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Pringle of Scotland mixed knitwear with the fabric. If you look closely at the sweater by Preen, you will see that this is basically the collection of different swatches put together with the piece of fabric. Well, there is an idea what to do with all these swatches you have accumulated during all these years of knitting 🙂

Christopher Kane mixes ruffles of fabric with simple rib knit dress and uses fancy yarns to create dresses. And Joseph creates the classic sweater, but spices it up with the super oversize fit and the use of bulky ribbon yarn of the uneven texture.

Pringle of Scotland uses macrame, machine knitting and crochet for its summer knitwear line.

A burst of color and graphic patterns. Chalayan sticks to the solid sunny color, layers and the mix of mesh pattern with the simple stockinette stitch.

Stripes, rhombus, chevron and color blocking in many shapes, textures and stitch patterns by Emporio Armani, Marques’ Almeida, House of Holland and Markus Lupfer.

And finally the dresses, of course! Julien Macdonald uses all possible crafts – macrame, machine and hand knitting, crochet, weaving, etc – to create his fit forming super fancy dresses.

And Teatum Jones creates basic rib knit dresses with the unusual sleeve set-in method.

Knitwear Review. New York Fashion Week, Spring ’18

Knitwear Review. New York Fashion Week, Spring 18.

Knit Cardigan. Simon Miller

The season of fashion weeks has started and I am keeping a close watch on the knitwear pieces appearing in designers’ collections. Most of the them are not devoted to knitwear per se, but there is always something to find and see how knitwear is incorporated in the whole look. As usual, New York designers are edgy, unconventional and a little bit on the crazy side. Let’s see what techniques, forms and stitches are being used for the upcoming spring, 2018.

The tendency that seemed to prevail during New York fashion week was to combine classic knitwear sweaters in neutral shades with more elevated pieces like sparkly skirts, romantic dresses, high-waisted pants and even ball gowns. The main focus is on the material – cashmere, angora, wool, cotton…

Sally LaPointe, Brandon Maxwell and Brock Collection:

Monse, Baja East and Dion Lee:
