When Susie Bubble just posted about Brazilian knitwear designer Lucas Nascimento I was reminded of how much I love knitwear.
Not only do I love knitwear I’m even a bit of a knitter myself (at least from time to time). So when I could not afford a much desired piece by Missoni I tried to knit a missoni-esque sweater myself.
Later I actually did buy my dream, a dress, but strangely I’m wearing it far less than I thought I would. One of the reasons is that it looses shape so quickly it has to be washed* every time it has been worn. I still love the pattern and the colours though.
Do you have a favourite knitwear designer?
*Naturally it should only be dry-cleaned, but if a garment doesn’t survive a wash it doesn't survive long in my wardrobe… I might make an exception for coats and blazers, which means they tend to become slightly filthy… but Shush! Enough of that!
P.S. It seems the camera works in near darkness. Not best results, but quite atmospheric, don't you think?
