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!!
