Missoni Resort Collection 2011

I love the colourful, eccentric collection designer Angela Missoni has come out with this season for Missoni's resort line. The clothes are a hybrid of yellow, red, orange and purple tribal patterns mixed with 1960's esque miniskirts and halter dresses.

The detail and photographic realism exhibited in Daniel Kornrumpf's hand embrodiered portraits is unlike any other embroidery I've ever seen. The whole amazing portrait series can be viewed here

Annie Larson

Wow! My first blog post! How exciting. I thought I would start things off by sharing the work of one of my very favorite contemporary knitwear designers, Annie Larson. Her clothes are vibrant and playful and I love her interesting use of pattern and shape. These pieces were knit on a Brother KH-950 knitting machine and were made for New Land of Milk and Honey, a collaborative show at the Soap Factory in Minneapolis, MN.
Check out work from the show itself here
