Trend of the Week:  Crochet

vogue.com

“Designers have been feeling crafty lately. Over the last year, runways were dotted with artisan handiwork that came in the form of odd embellishments: modern quilting and, perhaps most visibly, crochet. Jonathan Anderson showed his affinity for grandmother’s knits at his Fall 2017 menswear show, while Jeremy Scott wove colorful body-hugging dresses for Resort 2017. There was also Adam Selman, who crocheted cute miniskirts and polo shirts at his Spring 2017 outing. These designers made it clear that crochet isn’t just for old ladies, and this season is ripe for taking the trend from the runway to the street. The material is offbeat and wildly experimental, and that’s exactly what style risk-takers and Instagram It girls have been craving of late.It’s about mixing and matching: Pair a crochet jumper with a leather moto jacket; a ’60s silhouette dress with a fetish choker; or a knit top-handle bag and a pair of front-button track pants and sneakers.” -Text source: vogue.com
