There is always such a cool vibe to a LINE Knitwear show. Being the last runway event of Toronto Fashion Week, the room was literally filled with excitement and anticipation. At the moment Empire Of The Sun’s – Walking On A Dream played (which I haven’t stopped playing on my iPod since), I knew I was in for something special.
LINE Knitwear, known for their superb craftsmanship of, well, knitwear, really brought their A-game for their Fall 2011 collection. Design duo John Muscat and Jennifer Well put together an earthy and ethereal collection full of warm, easy and unintimidating but uber fashionable pieces for everyone. Heavy cable knit cardigans and sweaters, knit maxi dresses, tops and accessories like scarves and wraps all made their way down the runway in a to-the-T Bohemian, New York City, SoHo kinda downtown girl look.A plus to the collection, some new additions and unexpected materials incorporated like fur trims and stoles, leather a-cut shearling jackets, super-chic trousers and equally super easy flowing skirts.
As the high-energy music played, amazingly styled layers of knits were belted, cinched, accessorized and color-combo’d in perfect harmony with the Fall 2011 LINE knitwear girl. Everything worked so well together and definitely set a tone for the Fall look this year with some serious staple pieces in this collection. Congratulations again on another hit to the Line Knitwear team!
