Knit-wits Sibling have come out of nowhere. The knitwear brand, since their first Spring/Summer offering in 2012 have gone from strength to strength.
So much so Sibling are currently representing Europe in The Woolmark Prize 2014. But what do the knitting trio have in store for our wild and woolly winter wardrobes?
The hair of the show was in loose waves in a distressed bohemian kind of way. The models wore floor length crocheted and knitted dresses, with two causing disturbance from the stiletto heel getting caught in the knitted wonders.
Earthy browns, vibrant reds and plum purples echoed the bohemian feel of the presentation. Crystals adorned several of the woven garments, one taking a particular shine as the gemstones were made into bugs and arachnids on a dark denim jacket.
All clothing bases were covered, from rouge turtle necked jumpers with floral ribbon rose detailed heart on, to secretarial office wear with scalloped knitted lace edging in orange and fuchsia pink.
A common theme throughout the Sibling runway was a floppy wide brimmed hat, reminiscent of the witches in the TV show Coven.
The finale dresses would have also fitted well with the bewitching theme in pure virginal whites and satanic blacks.
Floor length ripped and distressed trains; with a figure hugging bodice and open weave collarbone area caused a stir from the wearers, as one model abandoned her plain black stiletto heels on the runway.
Sister by Sibling is once again a strong tribute to the female form.
Sibling have said that their ideal client is “A girl with a good sense of humour and a fun, happy attitude”. I just can’t help but feel this is for the more darker, rebellious sister in the family and that’s super cool.
