A bit of summer knit action; I loved the quality of this fine top and the cut-outs which encapsulate the idea of having a vest layered underneath. A very clever idea. I could see myself jogging in this or at least pretending to, then giving up and getting some Nandos.
Gorgeous photo-floral prints are here to stay next summer; I loved this fun take on the sporty bikini. I wished that the bottoms next to them could be made in a tighter, leggings like form.
Now here’s something you might get tangled up in; I was extremely drawn to the numerous ways the humble vest top can be reinvented and how the once simple structure can played with and turned on it’s head. The multiple straps and barely visible layers underneath definitely appealed and each design had some extra kind of detail added, separating it from the usual sportswear fare. These pieces made me think of a stripped down version of the deconstructed jersey I’d seen at the Hussein Chalayan exhibition earlier this year, though this time the basic colour scheme meant the form could truly be appreciated.
