Getting in the mood for AW15

With Cabaret already launched for AW15 and five more exciting new yarns with many fabulous patterns on the way there is much to look forward to in your yarn shop this year.

As all these new yarns arrive in the office and we go crazy over the patterns and colours we are always amazed at how the designers tap in to the latest trends even though they work a year ahead – right now they’re working on Spring 16!

So where do they begin? Just recently they went to probably the most important yarn show in the world Pitti Filati in Florence, Italy. International buyers and designers go to find creative inspiration & colour trends from fashion, art, sport and design fields.

After a whirlwind tour of the show (they complain there is never enough time to see it all) they head back to the UK to plan for the year ahead. The next stage: choosing colours, yarns, textures and styles.

While we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise of exactly what is to come this Autumn Winter we thought we’d share our autumn winter 2015 mood boards that (hopefully) identify the hottest trends that our designers will interpret in a Stylecraft way.

classic-cools

Classic Cools – Fluffy, downy, feathered fur effects to mimic the animal kingdom. Simple classic Silhouettes with cables.

crazy-colour

Crazy Colour – Patterns and stripes with big bold colours. A mix of textures, multicolour twists, loopy, eyelash – all fun & fantasy.

Super-nature

Super Nature – Shetlands, tweeds, boucles with ombré and dip dyed effects. Big bold cables. Layering, cocooning but not bulky

We can’t wait until we can share our new collections with you and look forward to hearing what you think!

Look out in early August for the next instalment.
