This Marc Jacobs pullover was in today's "What's new for you" email from Net-a-Porter and I immediately fell in love with it. I like the neutral color palette and the traditional motifs, and the use of the horizontal solid stripes is interesting and sort of innovative. I don't think I've ever seen that sort of striping used in a fair isle design and I wanted to examine it further. When I clicked through to look at it in more detail (did you know you can zoom in on all the items at Net-a-Porter by clicking on the picture?) I realized that this sweater is inside out! And by that I mean that it's purposely inside out, not that it was photographed that way by accident. You can see the yarn floats from the "wrong side" of the fabric but the seams are not inside-out, so that means the "wrong side" was intended to be the public side all along. What a cool idea!
It looks like knits will continue to be prominent this fall and winter and I couldn't be happier. Too bad it's a million degrees and 100% humidity again today in NYC . . . makes it seem like cool weather will never come . . .
