Wool Garments for Winter 2012-2013
This week can boast the annual celebration of the continuing Campaign for Wool initiated by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. Established in 2010, this Campaign was directed on promoting the UK-made woolen items and to support the wool industry in the country. Wool made a big splash on the fashion catwalks during the fall winter 2012-2013 shows.
Vivienne Westwood used to apply the traditional Scottish mills in creating her highland tartans.
Wool is one of the world’s great natural fibres, famous for its versatility and comfort – warm in winter, cool in summer.”
Missoni in turn decided to step away from its signature zig-zag pattern and switch to the swirling patterns made from mohair and cashmere yarns. Margaret Howell offers to combine the knitwear with woolen trousers, while Nicole Farhi proposed teaming the wool skirts with smooth blazers.
Mark Fast this season presented the graphic ribbed knitted jumpers with the pencil skirt silhouette, whilst Topshop Unique’s jumper became the favorite of celebrities like Alexa Chung and Daisy Low.
Pringle gave the second breath to the classical v-neck jumper by making it in pink neon mohair, while Stella McCartney reworked the habitual twinset: bold hues along with the bare legs added the sex appeal to the look.
Vivienne Westwood said:
The British twinset is absolutely gorgeous. You can add more than one layer and it looks great. You can wear your cardigan back to front with a string of pearls. I love buttoned-up cardigans on men, that’s so sexy.”
