Anyone keen to discuss construction for a moment? If you check out the pictures from Pitti Fillati on my site, you'll see examples of some interesting designs highlighted by Italy's biggest yarn manufacturers. One of the most unique trends I see arising here this season is this mix of uncontructed texture, like a multitude of cables across an otherwise loose and flowing cape or wrap. I love that, personally. It's a contrast of approaches that's kind of exciting and the designs take imagination but are not impossible to construct. What do you think?
So far I love that coat as it has a 1920's look to it .It also is a little "Fortuny" maybe which means knitting tabards maybe held together with beads .The new colinette silk in a colouway like "Raphael" would look gorgeous.I saw a gorgeous hair-pin lace skirt somewhere .The possibility of I-Cord appliqued onto garments rather than cables appeals to me because I am hopeless with cable needles. A slightly Celtic look is in my mind .
Mokey, 'chunky and bulky' seems to be the way the fashionistas are going, isn't it? but then, most of the models are excessively slender. The runway fashions show models heaped with what looks like multiple layers of carpets and curtains wearing a Aran sweater overall. What normal-sized person could wear that???
