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.”
Other crochet on the runway:
There were a couple of pretty dresses from Ryan Roche that were made from lovely crochet techniques
Schiaperelli shared this dress that looks to either be crochet or be inspired by it
Christian Wijants put out a collection that included knit and crochet hats
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.
