A spring trend your wardrobe needs
While some level of wardrobe regeneration happens every season, spring is particularly exciting because it suggests that fun times are imminent. Still, for those of us some distance from the equator at least, the truth of the matter is that winter chills can linger well into spring. This is deeply unjust, but there is a perennial trend that offers crafty cosiness alongside a distinctly sunny energy: crochet.
While glamour brings us deep joy, sometimes we just want to relax a bit. Crochet is perfect for doing that without forsaking glamour (or style). Although it’s heavily associated with festivals and other such frolics, there’s more to it than that – both in terms of aesthetic and material. NYC-based brand AREA, for example, construct crochet-style detailing out of strings of diamanté on their garments and Gebede make crochet bags that would look more fitting in Cannes than on a campsite. If there’s an occasion, crochet will suit it. And that’s why we love it. Here’s an edit of the best bits on site right now.
