Go decade-surfing with this season’s retro knits.
Wallpaper prints, geometric shapes, neon hues and granny’s knitting needles – put them in a time machine and what do you get? Retro knits with a 3.0 twist. Prepare to blend past and present for a kaleidoscopic style pastiche. Lust-have labels include Ireland’s Electronic Sheep (their signature scarves are a global hit), MSGM’s original take on argyle and a unique ‘70s throwback, compliments of River Island. Don’t adjust your TV set…
Create a 3D effect by layering dissonant prints. Print shy? Try sticking to similar colourways for a more subdued effect.
Team your retro sweater with leather trousers or PVC skater skirt for a texturedriven look.
Too scary? Skinny jeans and chunky ankle boots keep a punchy print clean and lean.
Newbies to the trend can start small with a winterworthy printed scarf – a practical way to drive the trend.
