Disco Friday with Surprise Me Knits


Issey Miyake just slung some shawls around his models … and hey-ho: The perfect top! He might have excelled at what Sarah Mower from style.com called 'unexpected knits', but Sonia Rykiel, Christian Dior, Prada, JP Gaultier, Givenchy and Vanessa Bruno all came up with some surprising knitting designs for a/w 2010.

Since on Disco Friday freedom reigns, and though I only have my diy scarf at hand, I think this shows the Miyake idea quite well. The more wearable version would be with proper trousers and a sweater, but that would be so boring, wouldn’t it? Happy weekend!!!


hat, scarf & sweater: diy, bodysuit: wolford, blouse: costume national, trousers: topshop, shoes: chanel vintage

Thank you, Platform Princess - You have no idea how I struggle with the English language sometimes. But maybe this makes the writing (involunarily) funny.

involunTarily... see what I mean?

Vintage Vixen said...

Love the first look! And I think it's so wonderful to have a DIY scarf(ves), hats and anything knitted, they have this special softness and sweetness, almost naive, but very chic and individual. I used to knit a lot when I was a student, but don't do as much as I'd love to these days.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Vix - First the boots, now the sequin pants. There seem to be some style parallels going on (or maybe we are just 2 thrifty shoppers...)

LittleRus - Yes, I used to knit more in the past than now, but still treasure all the things I made. It's all a question of time, isn't it?

Sher said...

Awesome pics! Love the idea and the piles of mags, are they all yours?

And your colourful scarf is just wonderful:)

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh Sher, this is just half of my Vogue collection. If I use all of them I can climb a mountain!

I really love your interpretation down to the props... great job! And I love that you didn't use a plain top to complement the scarf... your take is much better.

Have a great day! xoxo

Indy said...

Wow, what a cool way to wear that pretty scarf! And, awesome shoes!

Haute World said...

Great move using the knit scarf. I like the sequin pants in this pairing. I saw someone in those paired with a Balmain jacket during the Dior aw 10 show and it just looked too contrived.

Serina said...

Yeah, I like the nude but I don't think it would suit all skin colours (e.g. mine) :( Great photos!
