The new spring 2011 season sees knitwear at the heart of the major clothing trends – somewhat unusual for a summer season. Yarns explore the extremes of ultra fine and the sexily see through to the more dense textured and natural yarns. In fashion knitwear design, this is translated into diaphanous, lingerie-like, draping styles in fine and hazy yarns. Lace (open and fine), crochet (antique and freeform) and cut out neckline, sleeve and shoulder details all form an intrinsic part of being transparent. Transparency is a key direction for the season and is shown in its many guises in all the main trends.
