The season of fashion weeks has started and I am keeping a close watch on the knitwear pieces appearing in designers’ collections. Most of the them are not devoted to knitwear per se, but there is always something to find and see how knitwear is incorporated in the whole look. As usual, New York designers are edgy, unconventional and a little bit on the crazy side. Let’s see what techniques, forms and stitches are being used for the upcoming spring, 2018.

The tendency that seemed to prevail during New York fashion week was to combine classic knitwear sweaters in neutral shades with more elevated pieces like sparkly skirts, romantic dresses, high-waisted pants and even ball gowns. The main focus is on the material – cashmere, angora, wool, cotton…

The collections are made for spring, so cropped tops were in abundance, in all their shapes and colors.

Though it’s spring season, I still managed to find some cable knitting! Matthew Adams cable skirts are definitely something new!

    Alina,
    Thank you so much for this beautiful post! I felt like I was sitting on the sidelines of the runway. I love the comments you made and the pictures you shared–Your editing of a look and comments are, as always, SPOT ON!
    I so look forward to all your postings.

  2. Hmmm interesting as always. I think I like the stripe/ombre ones and the crochet ones the best. But it’s not like I’ll ever wear any of these anyway πŸ˜‰

    Still enjoy seeing Knitwear taken to a new level though.

  3. You have an amazing eye for detail, Alina – quite fascinating to see what you’ve selected here. I – on the other hand – am drawn to the colour. Those mustardy yellows! especially the first picture featuring a Simon Miller knit. Love the styling and the cardi itself. πŸ™‚

  4. Such a great runway round up! I loved seeing the slouchy off the shoulder sweaters, they look so comfy.
