Knit-wit

October 29 2014 – Mercantile London

With designers sending out layered knitwear in various permutations, the 'all-over' knit look featured heavily at the Autumn 14 shows. Whilst you may not want to adopt such a full-on approach, knitwear has certainly taken centre stage with the idea that your Autumn knits should have something just a little bit special about them. Whether you decide to go for colour, texture, embellishment or silhouette, that’s up to you, but it's definitely time to get your knit on.

With either exaggerated proportions or maintaining their title as a mod classic, roll necks remind us just how much of a hero piece they are again. Gat Rimon goes large below with their Rachel knit.

For those in-between days when the sun has gone, but it's still too warm for your full on coat (like now) these Black Lily hybrid cover-ups have a touch of 90’s cool about them. Perfect teamed with slip dresses and trainers now and as an extra layer over your roll neck when the chill really hits.

With influences of traditional Fair Isle and cable stitch patterns, these Laurence Dolige, Gat Rimon and Samsoe versions give a nod to the heritage mood. These look great worn with a midi length and battered, vintage leather.

Contrasting the embellished edge with a relaxed, sporty shape, these knits are truly something special. Don’t just think of them as party dressing though. Team with washed out distressed denim to contrast with the sparkle and wear whenever. We are in love with the beautiful colour palette of this Laurence Dolige version.

Fluffy, fuzzy, or furry as long as it has texture this season, you are on the right track. We love the Nanushka fuzzy grey marl sweater or the super soft teddy texture of the Gat Rimon cream knit. Team with your Dr.Denim  and let your top half do the talking.
