So, NYFW kicks off today and there are a few shows we’re really looking forward to seeing. One of my new favourite labels is french brand, Carven, so I’m particularly excited to see what they’ll be showing for A/W ’12. If their pre Fall offer was anything to go by, then we’re in for more 60’s naivety of the Alexa Chung variety. Here are our fav looks from the pre fall collection, via Style.com.
As we near the end of our London Fashion Week coverage, and we look at one of our favourite categories. For the past couple of season’s the knit report has been the easiest one for us to fill month on month. There is so much fabulous innovation happening in this field, and the fashion crowd certainly embraced that at this Fashion Week, rocking some really lovely knitted looks.
Reflecting what we have been seeing at retail, hairy and fluffy knits are super important, as are textural as well as patterned looks. As expected, these themes were taken to the extreme in some cases at LFW, but still looked super stylish. We love the surprise elements in some of these knitted looks, where knits are encased or interspersed with sheers or pattern is blown out and artfully placed. Proportions and detailing are incredibly important, especially when you are working a pretty simplistic knit style. So, we think that this Autumn Winter knits will be super important ( I know this may just sound like common sense and all…) so wear your wool with pride, feel simple chic in cashmere and embrace the hairy effects with lots angora bunny fluff.
