Cardigans or knitwear is general is not something that I used to think of as particularly fashion forward more perhaps the domain of my Grandma (not that she doesn't have her own great style). But lately new an innovative styles of knitwear seems to be popping up all over the place.
I recently came across Chantell Walters, a designer of cardigans (although her cardi's are a bit more exciting than your average cardigan). Chantell is London College of Fashion graduate with a BA in Fashion Design and Technology Womenswear. The Niquitin CQ Fashion awards recognised her as a future star of fashion for her conceptual parachute dress. She also interned for British design duo Preen and Gavin Douglas.
I love Chantell's fluid and draped cardigans in oversized cocoon shapes, pefect for wearing over leggings and a top. Thay have large arm holes adding to the unusual shape and play on proportions and I love the colours and patterns. Her cardigans are stocked in SHOP 172 Brick Lane. Hmm, I can feel a trip to London coming on very soon.
