I find the crocheted jacket in her Fall 2014 runway show beyond beautiful.
Although there are a number of knitted pieces, the jacket above is the ONLY crocheted piece in this collection.
The technique used to create the colour blocking is called intarsia crochet.
As far as I know there are no machines that can duplicate crochet work,
so crocheted items (unlike lace items) are
This is Italian fashion designer Daniela Gregis.
These are excerpts from her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, to show you how she incorporates the art of crochet and knitting in pret-a-porter fashion, in the most deliscious way (according to me of course!)
Daniela very elegantly walks on stage while crocheting a ball of twine with her fingers.
Her models are dressed in beautiful loosely fitted linen dresses and crocheted shoes.
And crochet bag (shall we call this no 1?)
The designer herself with crocheted bag no 2.
Bag no 3 was without a doubt done in chunky yarn and blocks of single crochets (dc in English terms).
Bag no 1 (again) is actually 3 bags that fit snugly together.
Very simple stitches were used to accentuate the plain with mustard, tan and bright red yarn.
I love theses crocheted wedges and the loosely knitted scarf in natural linen in the model's hand.
Ah, my favourite! Bag no 4 with a crocheted hessian base and body knitted from scraps of fabric.
Bag no 5 is a little more dainty and crocheted, with fabric scrap detail...

I would never have imagined seeing a deconstructed patchwork jersey featured in a high end fashion show in this day and age!
Hierdie was vir my die hoogtepunte van Karl Lagerfeld se nuutste reeks! As jy die HELE show wil kyk (bietjie meer as 15 minute), kliek hier. C x
