Following fashion trends is a lot of fun. What is old is new again but in most cases with a twist. Then again, sometimes the style is taken directly from the past.
A lot of the examples shown are very familiar to me, but to a younger generation it's fresh and exciting.
The Michael Kors shag jacket, I've always lusted for but just didn't get around to all the fringing.
The grey colour and soft roving type yarn just might entice me the second time around .
Cowichans are an important part of the Canadian culture but for the most part they are serviceable, heavy garments keeping out the cold beautifully.
Rag and Bone has put a new twist on this classic by shortening the length and making the design not quite so literal.
Arans or fisherman knits have become simplified, the design not so intense with different patterns. Cables are simpler, allover pattern and in some cases have opened up making them softer.
The Row likes knit pantsuits, oversized with long sleeves and statement collars. Again, this is not new, but the oversized yarn and fit is.
Adding to the knit with woven trend, Viktor and Rolf have "patched" cables onto wovens and leather, a new "aran" style.
Finally the "Coogi" was a surprise. This Australian label was very popular during the late 80's, always in wild colour combinations. Rag and Bone has paid homage to this famous brand in neutral tones
softening the image and patterning.
