    Interesting knits, but they don’t tempt me as some of the other knits you’ve shown us have. I think it’s the strong contrasts of colour that I’m uncomfortable with. The textures are certainly very intriguing.

      These knits are definitely not on my “wish” list, I am also drawn to more textured/neutral textiles. Still for me it’s always fascinating to see all kinds of forms of knitwear!

      I spend too much time reading about knitwear designers 🙂 I have a whole collection saved in my laptop 🙂

    I agree with the other commenter who said that they are not a favourite amongst those that you have shared. I agree they are ‘interesting’ and it is always intriguing to see what can be produced with fibre. Food for thought 😉

      I just love the details of these pieces! These tiny speckles of texture woven into the main fabric won my heart 🙂

    these are so beautiful, and so wearable! I love how it’s simultaneously super original, but look like something I’d happily wear in my real life. Very cool!

      I also love how the designer played with the fabric, but kept the traditional “wearable” shapes!
