Friday Knitting Inspiration. Runway Knits 2016 Review.

Fashion weeks are in their full bloom right now and we can have a sneak peek into what designers have come up with for spring-summer 2016 season. Here are my favorite knits that appeared on different runways.

Β Interesting textures, slouchy shapes and embellishment is what seems to be “in” right now in sweater design.Β First one that caught my attention is by Trussardi. I love the color and sparkly details. It’s not the most practical sweater, I guess, but I’ve been dreaming to work with beads in my knitting and the embellishment of this sweater is very intriguing. I am not sure about the neckline though, it seems way too deep and slouchy to me.

Next one is by Public School. A mix of different textures, colors and stitch patterns. If you look closely you will notice stockinette stitch, lace and cables. I love its slouchy shape, but to me it looks like cables got lost and can be hardly seen on the grey background.

One more sweater is by Thakoon. I fell in love with its stitch diversity! Though if I decided to knit something like that I would make it with long sleeves and longer. I always feel uncomfortable in crop sweaters.

A gorgeous crochet piece by Delpozo that just stole my heart! Wouldn’t change a thing about it. It is really difficult to make a whole piece covered in crochet flowers that doesn’t look too much and tacky, but this design looks very balanced.

And I saved my favorite one for dessert. A crochet dress with a stunning graphic pattern Β and a playful fringe on the edge by Edun. I would definitely love to make something like that, not sure about the fringe though… I never had a chance to wear one πŸ™‚ But overall the design is so inspiring!

Have a great, fun and creative weekend!
