High Fashion Knits

I love looking at high fashion knits and with the Internet it's so easy to find photos of runway shows and fashion exhibits. I enjoy the art pieces that are unlikely to be worn but have an interesting intellectual perspective. 

Designers demonstrate conceptual pieces to set a mood They know buyers are probably not going to place orders for these pieces.  Bizarre unwearable clothing has a place in a designers life because playing with ideas can result in innovations that impact the wearable pieces. They also bring media attention to the more wearable items in a collection. 

Unfortunately I'm confused by the unwearable pieces in the photos above. They are beyond over-sized and I find myself wishing the designer was able to share more about the concept or what they were trying to achieve. I suspect it could be very interesting to find out more. This is one of the limiting aspects of the Internet, the photos end up detached from the explanation.

  1. The first sweater pictured I've seen at least 5 of very similar design being sold. $138 to over $500. Knit in garter stitch with a loose tension.Though this one seems to be st st. The sleeves in the same pic are being put on many other sweater styles.
