Fall is definitely here and it’s time to pull those knitted sweaters outta the back of yo’ closet. This week we’re inspired by knitting and crocheting, both ancient techniques that are just as relevant and fashionable today as they were 100-years ago.
We love everything about these photographs by Mert & Marcus for the Vogue US September issue showing a retro wardrobe of comfy sweaters and knits.
We’re inspired by people who challenge old techniques and bring them to new levels. I’m sure even grandma would be proud to see girls like Christien Meindertsma bringing knitting into the 21st century with her over-sized Texel Ottomans and Urchin Poufs.
And grandmas’ doilies have grown to epic proportions with the Ladies & Gentlemens hand crocheted Megadoily.
Knits and crocheted pieces are classic and timeless, yet these basic techniques can have endless opportunities for creativity and reinvention.
