The Knitwear Edit 2012

Jonathan Saunders at ASOS (Can I have the pants as well?) via Vogue UK Magazine
Laura Bailey in Bella Freud & Suzie Bick sweater (my favourite!!!)
Di Bari in Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf (für alle deutschen Besucher meines Blogs: Super Auswahl, sooo weich, viele Farben auch in uni)

J.W. Anderson for Topshop (currently out of stock, but I bet they'll have them in before Xmas)

Perfect for...

Leather shoulder detail at Whistles
Peplum Style knit at Zara
As aforementioned, never underestimate the power of a well cut classic fine knit! This navy cardi's by COS.

Come autumn, I'm always on the lookout for some nice new knits, this year probably even more so because my husband shrunk two of my Merinos in the washing machine at 60° - big sniff! Needless to say, they didn't survive, thus came out looking like something you would dress Polly Pocket in! So here's this years knit edit! When I buy cashmere (I'm not a fan of itchy and scratchy) I usually go for a quality classic plain slightly loose fit with ribbed cuffs and edges, that should last ages (if doesn't accidently get washed by husbands). Too boring to show on the blog, but they look so great with everything on and cute with a shirt tucked underneath and that collar sticking out. I also go for one that is fun, so my all time faves off the beaten track are Bella Freud, not only because I'm a sucker for any arty and Rock'n Roll looking stuff, but growing up with my mum knitting the most fantastic and sometimes crazy jumpers for me till the age of 12 - ( from that age onwards I insisted on uni or stripes - she then gave up - too boring) I am rather spoilt!
What are your faves? Are you going for the "PowWow" slogan stuff, turtle necks a la Céline, ribcage and cross knits, motif knits or are you going to keep it simple or have a bit of both like me?
