I’ve always loved crochet jewelry. And yet, I had hesitated to make much of it other than a few necklaces here and there that were tied simply behind the neck without any kind of jewelry clasp. My hesitation was that I’d never made jewelry before and wasn’t sure what to purchase. Of course, I could have figured it out with some research and practice, but I’d never gotten around to it. Then I got the opportunity to try modme kits and it made it so simple to start creating crochet jewelry that I had to give it a try.
I’ve just been browsing the Shopbop website to see what kind of crochet fashion inspiration is there. Here’s what I discovered.
It’s time for Coachella again, the music festival where you are most likely to see super stylish crochet. I thought I’d share a roundup of crochet spotted at Coachella in the past in case anyone needs style ideas for this year’s festival!
I recently learned about Cupani Fashion from a news article that mentioned her crochet menswear shown at Baton Rouge Fashion Week. She had a lightweight mixed media men’s top with crochet details that got attention although she’s known more for her crochet fashion for women.
Back in October I shared the work of 5 designers who put crochet into their Spring ’15 runway shows (Givenchy, Ryan Lo, Sibling, Pucci and and Proenza Schouler). But spring was so far away then and it’s getting closer now so I thought we could use some more inspiration. Here are more crochet looks from the Spring ’15 runways and designer collections.
I just received an email this morning that TOMS is having a surprise sale and the first thing I had to do was check whether any of their crochet items are part of the sale. While the popular TOMS crochet shoes aren’t part of the sale, there are five other items that are discounted right now including two crochet hats by Krochet Kids.
The Simone Rocha designer fashion collection includes a stunning pair of crochet-edged gloves that I’m a little in love with after having spotted them on Luisa via Roma.
