Knitted skirts, shorts, tops and cardigans. The D&G collection spoils you for choice when it comes to knitwear. Whether you like bright and brash or monochrome, make sure you make a knitted statement this winter.
Knitwear is a must have for the winter season. Knitted dresses, skirts and cardigans and so on can make a real fashion statement and all the while keep the winter chill at bay. For FW11, the D&G collection is brimming with sexy, casual, fashion forward or classic knitted pieces.
There are two main stylistic choices which run through the collection- one of course are the prints, the letters printed in horizontal line patters which are a great aid in creating a trendy layered look. The other constant, is the feel of the wool, its felted, almost as though its been shrunken in the wash. The unusual texture of the wool makes for interesting silhouettes and textures.
The felted wool’s innovation is tangible when looking at this cocoon shaped dress. The unusual dimension, as well as the horizontal stripe print gives unusual dimensions and texture. The layered look can also be made more romantic by choosing a cropped top with a relaxed shoulder cut and a flowing chiffon skirt, peeping out from underneath a bodycon pencil skirt, giving the illusion of a slip.
For a chic yet casual pairing, match an oversize vest to a knitted pencil skirt. While for FW11 D&G have revisited the very popular sweater dress in a bold colour printed version. Add coloured accessories for a fun take on knitted daywear.
The cocoon shape jumper, with chiffon inserts and a colourful flowing chiffon jumper is emblematic of the D&G FW11 collection. For those who prefer a mode bodycon silhouette, there is a less egg shaped version. Don’t forget to match the iconic wedged heeled high-tops for a fashion forward winter look.
Colour can always make a statement. Match red and pink and black for a hint winter colour blocking. Leggings and a mini skirt are a match made in heaven, and to make the marriage last, for FW11 D&G have fashioned one item out of felted leggings and mini skirt.
