Paint a pictorial scene in yarn. this is a gret trend for knit and a highly commercial one. I'm personally very excited about this as a designer. I have started working on this for clients already some time back, having seen this one coming as soon as Matches released those lovely beauties onto the market and then Vicky Beckham followed up with her scenic scenes and then her embroidery... how the high street with handle it? As one off pieces? or will the pictorial landscape disseminate into the Christmas jumper range?

A sensural knit story of soft handfeel. Drape and viscose in fine gauge. Hairy soft and transparent yarns in chunkier gauges but still ligtweight. lots of pattern and a sophisticated palette of dark nightskies a beautiful combination of purple, blue and jade.

Weave and Embroidery and other crafts have been heavily influnencing knit, artisan crafts. Pattern is heavy in this trend, winter garden, applique leaves, kidsplay, scribbled embroidery crafted yarns and interwoven layered yarns. Again jacquard this time in bright contrasting playful colours on double beds and textural heavy guage sweaters for later seasons. Treated yarns, fringes, checks, woven in ends... this is a playful trend full of creativity the only limit is imagination.

We are officially back to work... the world is coming out of recession and we are getting dressed for the occassion. Again jacquard is important in repeat pattern with classic workwear motif, like lettering and check making an appearance. The palette a subdued blend of blue and a return of green undertones with classic camel.

Its a 24/7 world, "wake up, wake up, get up get up"... get out out of bed and get the day started... knitwear that is all about stretch and starting out. Pattern at play, jacquards are key in soft stretches, and mixed playful converstaion patterns. Get up, get out, walk that dog, get active, stretch.
