As autumn is fast approaching the fashion industry is starting to share stunning knitwear trends for this coming winter. In this blog, we are going to be talking about some of the key looks that are inspiring fashion trends this season.
Statement sleeves have long been a fashion fave however this autumn-winter we see the return of the balloon sleeve. Many designers are introducing fuller sleeves to knitwear looking to be a big trend for the foreseeable future. Designer Fendi adapted the common drop-shoulder sweater with an unexpected bishop sleeve. Creating a stunning silhouette and a fisherman’s rib texture. As usually Pringle of Scotland showcased breathtaking oversized knits all featuring the fashionable volume sleeve pushed up to the elbow for a slightly edgier look. This interesting style can really translate into high street fashion making it wearable and chic. The Juliet sleeve by Pringle of Scotland took centre stage with an inherently 80s style sleeve featuring a thin stitch and a roll neck for an even more wearable look.
A firm favourite in the fashion industry stripes doesn’t look to be going anywhere this autumn-winter. The fisherman style makes the look seem a lot softer and more palatable. At Colville, the stripes are chunkier with a thicker knit featuring a drop shoulder so as to draw the eyes down. Stripes are also an excellent way to clash patterns more below.
Until now clashing patterns and colours have been frowned upon in the fashion world, however, designers are starting to shake things up and incorporating it into the knit world. Missoni has experimented clashing stripes with colour blocks you can see this translate in a slightly diluted sense on the high street already.
We saw this trend a bit last year with Pringle of Scotland however this year it is back and better than ever. Pringle has utilised its 3D stitch creating dynamic knits. The three-dimensional effect is a really interesting use of a fairly simple technique. An inspiring way to create more dimensional fabrics.
