Visual Musings: Thick Knits
It’s no secret that fall season tends to revolve around texture– and for good reason! Has anyone ever really been comfortable in summer suede? Corduroy? Shearling wool?
Didn’t think so.
Cooler weather means more layers, thicker fabrics, and a certain “cozy-factor” that pairs naturally with crisp, misty mornings and salted caramel. Hair is worn shaggy, flannels more coarse, and plush throw blankets become a couch staple. I could swear that even coffee to-go cups feel a little more gritty in fall– and I mean that in the best of ways.
However, the classic fall knit stands a step above the rest.
The word “texture” itself is derived from the latin stem textere, “to weave”– and Fall 2017 is weaving its knits thicker, chunkier and plusher than ever.
The result? A loose-knit texture tidal wave that grandma doesn’t need to adjust her glasses to recognize.
