Friday Knitting Inspiration. Jessica Leclere.

Today’s knitwear inspiration is a young textile designer Jessica Leclere. Born in Paris, Jessica got her degree from the Royal College of Art and soon started her own knitwear line that is innovative, fresh and very inspiring.

Jessica’s approach to creating knitwear is very far from traditional. She is always in search of new materials, shapes and textures. There is something futuristic about Jessica’s knit pieces – color effect, structured architectural shapes, unusual construction.

This is definitely a new generation knitting! I admire how the designer turns classic stitches and shapes into something completely unique and unexpected.

My personal favorite is the sweater from Jessica’s Plaits and Ladders project. Slipped long stitches and an unusual cables construction break all the stereotypes of how the knit sweater should look like.
