Knitwear Inspiration :: Chanel Fall / Winter 2016-17


 A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

 The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. -- Coco Chanel


Chanel has been a frequent source of inspiration.  In my college days, it was the suit fabrics I loved.  I'd go to the couture stores, study the fabrics and then try to replicate them on my loom.  But these days, I study the knitwear and beadwork.

 This collection is ultimately urban and yet very wearable. Get ready to flash your knees, ladies.  Forget tights and pull out your most handsome hand knit knee socks. Or knit a boot topper to wear with your knee high skirt.  I love the modified ponchos that look a bit like a sweater tossed over the shoulders.  The look is carried further with scarfs that look like sleeves.  And all those fingerless gloves.  Yeah!  Take some of that knitwear and add a few well placed grommets.  Throw on a few chunky pearl ropes and you are ready to head out the door. Lagerfeld hit it  out of the ballpark.
