It’s that time of year, the time for looking back and checking out all of the amazing things that we’ve seen in crochet all throughout the year. So far we’ve looked at crochet art in 2015 and 2015 crochet books. Today let’s look at crochet fashion from this year.
Michael Kors, who began his career as a crocheter, has always incorporated interesting and fun crochet into his fashion lines. It’s fun to look at these and see what he’s done, and the designs can serve as great inspiration for your own crochet ideas, like the Zara and Cortefiel pieces that we’ve looked at previously. There are many places to get craft inspiration and fashion is definitely a top spot!
I always love when designer crochet hits the runway because this inspires other people to see what they can do with their own crochet skills to replicate some of the styles. Here are some of the recent shares in high fashion crochet, crochet on the runway and celebrities in crochet.
Orley is knitwear fashion brand that began with a capsule collection a few years ago and quickly expanded into both men’s and women’s wear. They got attention on the runway for New York Men’s Fashion Week with their couture crochet tops in a collection that celebrates family nostalgia.
I am a huge fan of crochet fashion designer Helen Rodel who uses really innovative designs to bring crochet to the catwalk. I first wrote about her back in 2012 and then shared updates on her work in 2013 and again in 2014. I always find myself drawn back to her site to see what she’s up to. Here are some of the beautiful pieces she’s got in her Spring Summer 2015 collection.
Nasty Gal is a brand that has a good selection of crochet in the line. What I love is that even though some of it is the classic white crochet that many brands offer, there is also some colorful granny square crochet to enjoy.
I’ve just been browsing the Shopbop website to see what kind of crochet fashion inspiration is there. Here’s what I discovered.
