Dries van Noten presented a beautiful, restraint collection, mainly in black, white and camel with flashes of color and exciting prints. He got inspired by David Bowie and the Ballets Russes and translated that into a romantic collage of print, color and textures. And it was ultrachic. Lond coats over pants, golden skirts with black sweaters and dresses cut with intense yet visually discreet asymmetry.

Catwalktrend FW2010: winter knitwear

For next season D&G set the trend with their sporty, winter knitwear. They sent out jumpsuit, bodysuits, tops and turle necks with winter snowflake or reindeer print on the runway. Their models we’re heading to the après-ski and looked damn good after a day of stylishly skiing.

Though a ski suit normally is not very flattering, D&G sure made it work. They even managed to present a sheer floral skirts with a knitted sweater as one outfit, without everybody disliking it. It was one of those grunge looks, we discussed earlier.

And there were more brands celebrating the cosy winter knitwear look. Chanel, Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Missoni and Rodarte all showed their own versions for this winter.

It’s unbelievable how these sweaters can become so popular in such a short period of time. I remember seeing my parents wearing them on photos from 25 years ago and finding them horrofic. Now a sweater a la D&G is on my musthave list for this winter.
