I’m always on the look out for the latest fashion with a touch of handcrafted goodness. Fashion week in London, New York and Paris (about 3-5 weeks ago) did not disappoint me! There were MANY outfits with knitted detail, crocheted touches and free style embroidery to drool over. Here are a few of my favourite outfits (with some notes on what caught my eye) by some pretty famous designers for Spring/Summer 2016.calvin klein october 2015 hellohart_com

  3. I’m trying to get my hands on some really good knit dresses. I have a lovely green knit coat in my closet. I completely forgot to bring it out this summer. Burberry has been doing knit dresses for the past three seasons. Full knit, with and without lining. I’m sure you’ve seen those, too.

    • Summer’s always too short… sigh :-/ Is the green coat catalogued anywhere on your blog? Yes, I’ve seen some nice knit dresses by Burberry. One of my daydreams is to pull a knit like that off my needles and onto myself, one day! πŸ™‚ β™₯ ❀

      • Thanks for this. I haven’t photographed it for my blog but I can send you a photo of it one of these days. I wear it with a pleated mini dress in green or a champagne v neck dress. I know you can knit one. Prada did aprons a few seasons ago. I think a crochet apron would work with one of your favourite floral dresses and a jacket. It’s a happy compromise and the final look would be very Dolce. xo

        • Hmmm… haven’t noticed aprons, but do like the Doulce doilies effect. Your outfit sounds cute πŸ™‚ I’d love to see it! My email accounts are a pretty scary sight, these daysβ€”after past 6 months stuffed inside my iPad :-/ So thanks for the reminder to get my email-organizing-butt into gear πŸ˜‰ … lol, sigh… and I’ll watch for whatever you might send! πŸ™‚ β™₯ ❀

          • No problems. I hate email, too, with a passion. I might just upload it to my Flickr account and @ you to with the link. Much faster. (((o(*οΎŸβ–½οΎŸ*)o)))*\(^o^)/*

  8. I really like fashion shows. I enjoy looking at the artistic designs of clothes. I like how you emphasized the stitching and hand knot or crocheted details. Smiles, Robin
