I’ve been looking to find what we can expect to see in 2012 world of knitwear.
First of all what colours can we expect to see?
Blues, nautical – and yes – TURQUOISE (you might guess one of my faourite colours) – bring a joyful, clear, and clean look to summer palettes.
Terra cotta will be very big in summer 2012, headed towards russet based hues, a big emphasis on terracotta tones will also be evidenced in home and housewares in 2012.
Yellows, Golds and Greys – will also be emphasized, reminisant of ominous storm clouds retreating after a strong thunderstorm; with late afternoon sun breaking against yellow fall foliated trees ( how’s that for being poetic? :))
The Spring/Summer 2012 season’s motto is: it is time to make a fresh new start, and unveil a season that promotes optimism, indulgence, contradiction and most of all modernism.
Most of the 2012 collections consists of many beautiful basic garments for both business and leisure. They seem to have been inspired by retro fashions and you will find many trendy and cool designs in beautiful colors.
Chanel can often be counted on for some sleek, chic knits.
I love the texture and shape of this dress.
Some of the most interesting items, from a knitter’s point of view, were accessories. Not scarves or hats after all, this is spring/summer,but shoes! Did I say knit shoes? YES!
Think I can make a knit version of these shoes? I might have a go! 🙂
The latest design in the collaboration between Missoni and Converse was unveiled in Milan. It’s a knit version of the old Converse running sneaker the Auckland Racer, for men, with the pattern inspired by vintage track suits that were designed by Ottavio Missoni back in 1948.
Just as shoes come knitted in Spring/ Summer 2012 season, so do bags. The knit trend continues to dominate the bag fashion scene for the Spring/Summer season. Knits are stylish, chic and unusual, they’re also versatile so you won’t be having problems pairing it with your outfit. Go for bold and vibrant colors for that perfect summer vibe.
What do you think of the colour Tangerine?
