The same trends that pop for Spring 2011 filter to knits as well. We saw sheer knits, zigzags and stripes and boxy minimalist sweaters. Trendy colours saturated fibres.
Let's take a look at the Crown Royal of Knitwear, Missoni. I would have thought they would have gone the way of 70's stripes, like Marc Jacobs, but tribal and zigzag it was with boxy lines.
Salvatore Ferragamo keeps crochet alive in his 70's inspired show. This dress is too cute!
... and more boxy. See how knits are the pop of colour, minimalist and the sheer trend?
Interesting poncho (oh, not ponchos again!).
Speaking of colour, Pantone give us these to play with, but don't forget black and especially, white - it's so huge for Spring.
Ok, I know it is depressing looking at Fall collections when summer hasn't even started yet, so I started with a little fun summer outfit from some gal at Coachella. Love the boots and if I had legs like that, I'd be showing my gams too. But what caught my eye, was the scarf? shawl? I think scarf., which is the inspiration behind my next project.
Note the cable up the stockings, as only Prada could think of.
A fitting ending, always and forever my fav, Sir Ralph.
