Spring 2011 will celebrate knitwear through the form of extreme ultra-fine and see through pieces, contrasting with more dense, textured and natural yarns. Fine, hazy and draping styles in lace, crochet and cut out details will feature heavily throughout, with transparency being the key trend. These trends are reflected in the following three stories: Illusion is inspired by mysterious atmospheres and draws from a veiled colour palette of time-worn pales, spectral greys, powdered pinks and green shadows. Homespun celebrates fresh, sunny hues and modest rural simplicity. This story is all about easy, unstructured designs and fun, loose fitting garments perfect for bright Summer days. Summer Essentials is part of a brand new addition to Rowan magazine. Each edition will now include this groundbreaking section where the season's key looks are translated into simplified, easy-to-wear styles.
