Where all things beautiful collide

More sweaters!  Today I’m actually talking about just sweaters, not the head-to-toe way of sweater dressing as discussed yesterday.  These aren’t just your average cable knit varieties though.  I’ve scoured the runways to find some of my favorites with details that are totally unexpected!  From tying a sweater around the neck as a scarf substitute and wearing it backwards like at Christophe Lemaire, to the trend I mentioned yesterday of matching scarves to your sweater, as seen at Prabal Gurung and Jonathan Saunders, this season is a great one for knits.  I love small details, and designers delivered countless surprises.  Take the buttons at the shoulder and elbow slit on the ribbed looks at Céline, the mixed media woven sweaters at Alexander Wang, and the ribbon trimmed sweet meets edgy sweater at Christopher Kane.

Other trends I’m noticing are oversized cardigans, seen again at Wes Gordon, and tied around the waist at Rachel Comey.  The cropped top trend of summer continues in the world of sweaters, only this season worn over a top or button up, like at Phillip Lim.  And then there are some sweaters that are just good sweaters, whether it be an amazing oversized chunky patterned knit at Barbara Bui and Creatures of Comfort, or more classic styles like at Trademark, Victoria Beckham, Whistles, and Pringle.  Classics were also turned on their head a bit for fall, seen at Dries van Noten with almost psychedelic patterning, and with a simple permanent fold of the sweater at Balenciaga.  There’s so much to love this season and so many options better than the basic crewneck cashmere pullover.  Give one of these more artisanal autumn sweaters a try!
