Now Trending: Relaxed Craftwork Vibes

Crochet and cutouts for a paysanne aesthetic

Words and Styling by ALISON EDMOND


The season’s trend toward a homemade artisanal look has landed at the best, and worst, of times. Just when we can all get inspired by reworking what we already have in our closets, designers have also turned to classic skills like crochet and knitting, which produces pieces that can be layered with summer ones for a softer, bohemian mood. Wear a cardigan from Etro over silk dresses, or an asymmetric knit tank from Monse over a simple white tee. Add chic tassled jewelry, clogs from Celine or woven AGL sneakers as final touches — perfect for lounging in at home.
