This September designers from all over the world are showing their collections for Spring/Summer 2019 season. I always browse through the shows to filter out knitwear pieces and look at knitting and crochet techniques from a different point of view. Today I put together a review of knitwear pieces that caught my attention from New York and London fashion weeks.
Ulla Johnson is reinterpreting a classic granny crochet square in colorful tops and dresses; plays with textured ruffles and mixes knitting with patterned fabric.
Classic stripes in Sies Marjan and Markus Lupfer collections find their way in sweaters, dresses and skirts.
Crochet dresses by Oscar de la Renta – graphic patterns, fringe, neutral colors.
Full knitwear look will definitely be “in vogue”. Natural materials, summery colors and simple knit stitches – all of this you will find in JW Anderson and Calvin Luo collections.
White dresses, created by using crochet techniques, intricate machine knitting, exquisite handwork by Carolina Herrera, Eckhaus Latta and Self-Portrait.
Burst of color by Prabal Gurung. I loved how different techniques are being introduced in these sweaters – dipped in color classic sweater, mix of textured knit stitches and stripes, mix of different materials on a slightly oversized drop shoulder pullover.
Sally LaPointe plays on contrast – from neutral to fuchsia monochrome look.
Dresses and colorful knit tops by Prabal Gurung scream summer! I absolutely love how the designer played with color blocking.
I was very pleased to see different technique used to create the dresses – crochet, metallic yarns, classic simple stockinette stitch.
Those two knit dresses were particular interesting for me to look at – I love the construction and how wearable they are! Classic silhouette with a front split by Mara Hoffman. And such a cool dress with uneven hem by PH5 – love the visual effect the stipes create!
Intarsia by Coach 1941.
I hope you are going to have a wonderful weekend!
