I recently showcased stunning new crochet fashion from some of my favorite designers who regularly put out collections. What wasn’t there was the stuff that’s on the runway … and I’m sharing that today because I always find it inspiring when high-end designers take the time to make custom crochet pieces to send down the catwalk.

The two pieces that I loved the most this season were retro-inspired bulky crochet pieces from Rosetta Getty whose collection was inspired by director Chantal Akerman. Maya Singer of Vogue writes,

“fittingly for a collection indebted to the work of Akerman, the showiest piece here was also the most humble one: Getty’s crocheted alpaca cape looked for all the world like the kind of afghan your granny might knit for you because she was worried you were cold. It was a piece of fashion business that reminded you what it feels like to be loved.”

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs put some fascinating looks on the runway accented by vintage-inspired crochet collars. My favorite is the pineapple lace piece below:

Sibling usually has crochet in their collections. I didn’t spot any this time, as I’m pretty sure it was all knit, but I loved some of the chunky knits and thought they make great crochet inspiration.
