In the Knit of Time

by Mik Hyldebrandt

 

Leading the fall and winter season is knitwear because it is, you know, sweater weather! It is both a wardrobe classic and staple, and an easy item to both follow a trend and manifest your style with. Following years of understated Nordic style, knitwear now makes more of a statement whether it is playing with texture, patterns, or print.
