Knitwear Review. Paris FW, Spring/Summer 2020

Knitwear review

The last knitwear review of the season is coming from Parisian runways. This time I’ve found classic interpretations of knitwear, theatrical costumes and mix of styles.

Miu Miu paired off shoulder cardigans with skirts. Looks like they used alpaca or some mohair in their knits – they look so soft and comfy.

Knitwear review

It is very rear to see knitwear, especially crochet in the business attire. Altuzarra is breaking the tradition and mixes crochet tops with suits and crochet/knit skirts with blazers.

Knitwear review

A little bit of costume theater from Thom Browne. Just looks at those knits – I do not why but it feels like a scene from Alice in Wonderland movie.

Knitwear review

Altuzarra presented eclectic dresses and classic cardigans that are so easy to wear.

Knitwear review

Nanushka is keeping it classy and natural – neutral colors, simple shapes and natural materials can be found in their latest collection.

Knitwear review

Courreges, Givenchy and Zadig&Voltaire have created eyelet knits that are easy to pair with skirts, shorts and pants.

Knitwear review

This simple stripe sweater from Zadig&Voltaire is one of my favorite from Paris fashion week – loose shape, wide stripes and simple colors. It also looks so great with the summer tiered skirt.

Knitwear review

Sacai featured knit dresses and paired them with one shoulder trench coats/shirt dresses. Such an unusual styling!

Knitwear review

Christian Dior and Mame Kurogouchi use their cozy loose sweaters as the canvas and created a beautiful print.

Knitwear review

This is it for this season knitwear reviews from the fashion weeks, I really hope you found something interesting for yourself in them. You can see all my reviews here – Knitwear Review Fashion Weeks. My favorite from this season was New York, so many classy shapes and beautiful designer decisions.

Hope you are having a great week! I will see you soon!

Knitwear Review. Milan FW, Spring/Summer 2020

Knitwear review

Milan fashion week presented a mix of traditional and experimental knitwear for the upcoming spring/summer season. My absolute favorite so far of all the collections I looked through is by Brunello Cucinelli. Such feminine, cozy, beautiful pieces I would immediately wrap myself into!

Knitwear review

The styling of this lookbook is so elegant. I love the idea of layering a light knit cardigan with a silky shirt on top, so chic!

Knitwear review

Layering trend is continued with the runway from Giada – combining knitwear and other textiles the designer created striking looks. I would definitely wear them to the office!

Knitwear review

Fendi is layering knitwear with transparent skirts, shirts and swimwear.

Knitwear review

Genny and Salvatore Ferragamo are combining knit tops with shorts, skirts and wide high-waisted pants.

Knitwear review

Salvatore Ferragamo is offering to ditch a traditional business suit and just wear knit shorts with tops to create a “power look”. I wouldn’t risk it to wear it to the office, but definitely looks like a perfectly comfy outfit for the Netflix night.

Knitwear review

General knitwear color scheme was pretty subtle, but Peter Pilotto chose to use some bright prints for his pieces. I can see a lot of intarsia and fair isle work here.

Knitwear review

Agnona featured a solid turquoise color classic cardigan. I absolutely love how they paired it with office pants!

Knitwear review

Dresses. Eyelets, dropped stitches and lots of drape – all of it you will find in Anteprima knit dresses. Salvatore Ferragamo made stripe dresses and “forgot” to weave in ends, well that can be our knitters’ excuse for postponing this part of the process, after all it looks like it’s a “vogue trend” now 🙂

Knitwear review

Dolce & Gabbana created a collection that is taking us to the past – ultra feminine suits, dresses and skirts. I can spot a lot of dropped stitches techniques and irish crochet lace.

Knitwear review

Fashion weeks are always a great resource to find new unusual interpretation of knitwear. They are often exaggerated for the show purposes and not really wearable, but still interesting to investigate all the forms and shapes a piece of thread can turn into.

Out of box thinking could be spotted on the runways of No.21, Ermanno Scervino, Sportmax, Jil Sander and Genny.

No.21 and Ermanno Scervino used sparkle and unusual details (apparently not all sleeves are meant to be worn) in their creations.

Knitwear review

Sportmax intrigued me so much with this piece. I downloaded a high-res photo just to zoom in and see what they did there. Looks like it is a classic cable knit that they painted with some special technique that gives an additional 3D effect.

Knitwear review

Jil Sander and Genny were generous with the fringe using it as a decorative and exaggerated detail.

Knitwear review

I hope you enjoyed this knitwear review! Have a great weekend!

Knitwear Review. London FW, Spring/Summer 2020

Knitwear review

Happy Monday! I am continuing my Spring/Summer 2020 knitwear reviews from fashion weeks with London. British designers didn’t present a lot of knitwear this time, but what was shown definitely confirmed that London fashion weeks is always the most experimental and edgy.

London wouldn’t be London if it didn’t rethink the conventional forms and shapes of knitwear. Why not to break the knit dress in half with the buttons closure (Toga show), or why not make drastic cut-outs and attach the chains to them (Toga) and why sleeves have to be just for arms and not be a part of the main body (Fashion East)?

Knitwear review

You will also find various embellishments in form of silk ribbons (Molly Goddard), exaggerated fringe (JW Anderson) and giant cotton balls (Fashion East).

Knitwear reviewKnitwear review

JW Anderson presented a small collection of cozy knit dresses “with the twist”.

Knitwear review

Knitwear review

One of the most interesting (construction and color work wise) dress was presented by Kiko Kostadinov fashion house. Ribbing, striping, fabric gathering, extra layers – you will all of it in one piece. Looks like a knit puzzle.

Knitwear review

Marques’Almeida and Christopher Kane continued the total color look tendency from New York fashion week. The designers are playing on the contrast of fabrics and textiles.

Knitwear review

Marysia created beach crochet pieces that are easy to throw on with your swimsuit.

Knitwear review

I will see you with review from Milan fashion week later this week!

Have a great and productive Monday!

Knitwear Review. New York FW, Spring/Summer 2020

Knitwear review

Starting this week I am sharing with you the knitwear reviews from 4 major fashion weeks, season spring/summer 2020. I am starting with New York that was so generous with knitwear fashion this year. Many designers decided to skip the runway and created beautiful lookbooks.

TSE, Shaina Mote and M. Patmos made timeless knitwear – classic shapes, neutral colors and beautiful materials.

Theory created one of the most beautiful looks in my opinion – I just love how they combined knitwear fabric with a classic suit.

Knitwear review

Eco materials and unconventional shapes were characteristic of Lauren Manoogian collection. I recommend looking through an entire lookbook here – Lauren Manoogian SS 2020 – such an inspiration!

One of my favorite looks created were when knitwear top is pared with unusual skirt/pants. This contrast is such a great design feature. See below looks by Theory, Alejandra Alonso, Adam Lippes, Sally LaPointe, Ryan Roche and Zero + Maria Cornejo.

Knitwear Review. Milan/Paris FW, Fall/Winter 2019

Knitwear Review. Milan and Paris Fashion Week. The Gift Of Knitting.

A little bit later than it should have been done, but here it is – the last knitwear review from the fashion weeks fall/winter 2019, Milan/Paris. These two cities are always interesting to watch in the terms of knitwear, as the designers usually come up with innovative, but still wearable pieces. London and New York tend to be much more crazy in their design approach.

Monochrome total knitwear look is definitely “a thing” – Christian Wijnants, Aalto, Agnona and Max Mara, all played with this tendency in different variations.

Skirt + sweater look keeps transitioning from one season to another, just changing its form a little bit. If in previous seasons we saw classic, feminine and romantic looks, this time the combinations are more bold with knitwear taking sharp edges and distorted forms in the collections of Issey Miyake, Jacquemus, Chloe, Chanel, Alberta Ferretti, Luisa Beccaria, Philosophy di Lorenzo and Fendi.

One of the most beautiful knitwear pieces, in my opinion, was seen on the runway of Genny – soft as a cloud white dress gradually transitioning to a more transparent look as it flows towards the floor.

Men’s knitwear was especially interesting to look at – Bottega Veneta showed us out of ordinary knitwear, with innovative approach. Unusual shapes, cut outs and combination of fabric created quiet dramatic looks.

The overexaggerated forms, almost knitwear sculptures, could be seen on the runways of Anrealage, Isabel Marant and Arthur Arbesser.

Sparkle. Bottega Veneta and Ermanno Scervino added some spark to their sweaters.

Altuzarra used quiet an innovative technique in its knitwear – if you look closely the knitwear fabric gradually “disappears” into the usual fabric, with its pattern fading away. I would suggest that is done with the help of felting – creates very interesting effect!

I hope you enjoyed this review and found something interesting for yourself! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Knitwear Review. New York/London FW, Fall/Winter 2019

Knitwear Review. New York and London Fashion Week. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Sunday! Today I continue my knitwear review series that have already become a tradition here – every season the designers are showing their collections in the course of the main 4 fashion weeks – New York, London, Milan and Paris. I try to look at knitwear from the different points of view and the fashion weeks are a great chance to browse through the tendencies and techniques.

New York and London have presented the mix of classic, innovative and exaggerated knitwear ideas.

Pringle Of Scotland, known for its knitwear, showed monochrome neutral total knitwear looks and presented variations of their signature classic print.

Colorwork was presented in different variations – Victoria Beckham, Fashion East and Eckhaus Latta used intarsia technique to draw patterns and even pictures on their pieces.

Margaret Howell took the conservative road and used classic patterns for her colowork. Love the gradient effect of the white sweater!

Ulla Johnson played with stripes in their golden beige sweater – the stripes are changing direction, angle, the width and the pattern. Pejina Pyo used the contrasting colors – different for each sleeve (because why not?!), I love the effect it created – a simple classic pullover automatically turns into a statement piece! Fashion East integrated the color into shape and structure of the cropped cardigan.

Colorwork was also presented with patchwork – ALEXACHUNG, Moddy Goddard and Eckhaus Latta created the color ¨puzzles¨.

Cables are always in vogue. The tendency of mixing yarn with other materials that was really big last year continues this season as well. Cables could be spotted in the collections of Badgley Mischka, Area, Emilia Wickstead and Christopher Kane.

One more unusual trend that I spotted is knitwear layering – it could be done for the runway show effect or who knows maybe we will see variations of this styling in mass fashion as well.

Simplicity in Victoria Beckham and Eudon Choi collections:

Here is one of my favorite looks from London FW by ALEXACHUNG – a simple knit dress layered over a floating light summer dress, such a great look for the transitional season!

Sleeves, obviously ¨a thing¨ rigth now, – oversized and exaggerative – could be spotted on runways of Adeam, Brandon Maxwell and Ulla Johnson.

Hope you enjoyed this review and found something interesting for you! Next week I am going to present you the project that I have been working at for the last several months – it was one of the most challenging patterns I have written, but I am so glad I ventured on this road – love how it turned out!
