I’ve been noticing lately that a lot of people have been posting pictures of their own re-imagining of designer clothes. So I wondered how much crochet is out there right now in the designer world. I don’t follow fashion myself and I don’t buy designer clothes, but I did find some interesting designer crochet out there. I found a site called farfetch.com, they have all kinds of stuff from various designers. I just did a search for crochet and there were 244 results. Crochet is hot!
There’s the Round Neck Crochet Jumper by Chloé. This top goes for $950. It’s 14% wool and 86% cotton. It’s pretty and elegant. From a distance it doesn’t look like crochet, but when you zoom in on the stitches, it does.
I found this ‘Quentin’ Crochet Vest by Alice + Olivia. This definitely looks like something I could make. And it’s kind of my style. Retail goes for $433, currently. I could possibly make it for under $100 using quality yarns. This one is made out of 66% linen/flax and 34% viscose.
There are these funky Balmain Crochet High-Rise Trousers available. These are 50% off right now for a mere $1,115. The materials are viscose 83% and polyamide 17%. This makes me wonder, what is viscose? Apparently it is semi-synthetic. Well, these pants are colorful and they look pretty easy to make.
How about a granny square Crochet Sweater by Comme des Garçons? This sweater reminds me of the Roseann afghan. This goes for $1,271 and is 100% acrylic.
Don’t miss these Blade crochet boots. OK, these are pretty fabulous by Casade for only $900. The crochet part is 100% cotton over leather spike heels. And then there are these boots, also by Blade, which may be even more fabulous!
I love this designer crochet jumper by Ryan Roche. I’d love to make this one, since I’m not about to spend $495 for it. This is 100% cashmere, so the yarn might cost almost that much to reproduce it. But I bet some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino yarn would be good to try to make this.
This crochet floral design pullover is pretty interesting by Sea. I’m not a fan of the ruffles, but the rest of it is cool. This is 100% cotton for $583.
This isn’t my taste, but it’s pretty cool. It’s a colour block crochet sweater by Sonia Ryliel. This sweater is $662; made of cotton 40% and polyamide 60%.
They also have a crochet swimsuit by Amir Slama. It’s currently 15% off for $795.
And they have a crochet grapes earring by Rose Assoulin. This earring goes for $250 for a single earring. So I guess that would be $500 if you want a pair.
