Knit Picks

Yet another fashion week has come and gone.  While the temperatures refuse to acknowledge the coming of spring, we dream of cozy knits to incorporate into our closets this fall based on trends in the Fall/Winter 2014 collections.  I love how knitwear was a big focus this season.

Valentino, a brand more known for its delicate wovens and romantic eveningwear, showcased exquisite and eye-popping graphic sweaters.

Others were not afraid to embrace a head-to-toe knit look, such as the stylings seen at Celine and Haider Ackermann.
