For many women, the word knitwear conjures up images of chunky scarves and ill-advised holiday gifts from distant aunts. Andy Ve Eirn’s new summer collection features fashion-forward clothes and accessories with a modern twist, and gives knitwear a lighter, more youthful feel.
Each knitting pattern in this luxury line is a unique design. Every fashion Tank Top, Blouse or one-size dressed are hand-made. The designer’s continued fascination with clean lines and geometric shapes is perfectly in keeping with fall 2011 trends, so many of these pieces can be layered as the weather cools off, to take you beyond the summer.
However, the gauzy lace patterns, in lightweight wool, offer plenty of ventilation, making them a great choice to wear now as well. The slouchy tunic sweaters would look great thrown over a bikini, while the translucent tank tops would sizzle with shorts and chunky jewelry for a balmy evening barbeque.
In a natural palette of off-white hues, light beiges and soft, smoky grays, this collection will work well with any wardrobe. The neutral colors of the summer line are flattering to most skin tones, and put the focus firmly on the beautiful textiles – which is what this brand is best known for.
