The latest issue of COVER (Autumn 2013), features the latest trend in carpets: the lace look. Colourful, laced yarns also made a big comeback in the fashion world in 2013, with crocheted details proving particularly popular as market leaders return to classic styles and retro trends of decades gone by.
Summer trends saw skin peeking through with cut-out detailing, such as Dolce & Gabbana’s S/S13 golden lace and knit dress, similar to the crocheted look of Shang by Paola Lenti, that comes with a crocheted handbag.
The coming winter is also the ideal time for layering, making designs like the slouch-style crocheted Chanel dress perfect.
Raf Simons’ has also pushed forward with Dior’s Fall 2013 couture collection, spilling over with colour and cinched waists, and patterns reminiscent of granny knit squares, which also appear on Francis Montesinos S/S 2013 collection.
