KNITWEAR IS THE NEW TRENCH
My friends at Clare Tough created a collection for this Winter that evokes a familiar feel of the 60’s and 70’s but remains firmly facing forward. The design direction is now under Claire Millar, a master in reinventing knitwear pieces, giving them a subversive feel. Playing with materials is not Claire’s only talent. Her understanding of the codes of knitwear and its place in fashion history is what sets Clare Tough’s design aside. A bouclé tailleur, a conservative staple in any woman’s wardrobe, is subverted when worn with a contrast texture and structured with leather accessories. Modern and practical like a trench coat. And as someone has said, knitwear is the new trench.
