I had an enormous pleasure to visit London’s Fashion and Textile Museum and see  KNITWEAR Chanel to Westwood exhibition .

White pieces with a hint of everything – from fruit prints to 90’s inspired  oversized garms. They will surely be ready to be used next year but they ,the way I see it, should be put back in the closet for the time period between October and April…
