Zara Spring/Summer 2018 Knitwear

Knitwear designers are always marginalized in Spring/Summer collections because salespeople and merchandisers historically proclaim, "Knits don't sell in the summer." I think all of us knitwear people think otherwise and clearly, if Zara thinks they can make big bucks on it, perhaps we're right.

Crochet Styling

Crochet can be very specific and is usually presented in editorials as beach-y or girly.  I like the the presentation of these pieces.

The mash-up and layering of all these pieces makes it a little avant-garde but the colors 
and especially the shoes keep it casual.

The ribbons are "sweet" but the jacket is discordant and unexpected which pairs well with the scenery.

We're only seeing a hint this dress, which I 'm guessing gets frilly toward the bottom but her feathered brows, messy, slightly 80's hair style and looonnnng earrings make it look tougher.
