LoOk BoOk 1: Fair Isle and Fringe
This look is about mixing elements (suade, leather, knit, metal) for a casual look that has some edge. A pop of color with the skirt, combined with neutrals is just enough to make a statement! Highlight with some gold and black sequin jewelry and accessorize with a black sequin purse (the jewelry and the purse will be friends :).
I was curious to know the history behind Fair Isle patterns, this is what I found!
|Fair Isle is a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours. It is named after Fair Isle, a tiny island in the north of Scotland, that forms part of the Shetland islands. Fair Isle knitting gained a considerable popularity when the Prince of Wales (later to become Edward VIII) wore Fair Isle tank tops in public in 1921. Traditional Fair Isle patterns have a limited palette of five or so colours, use only two colours per row, are worked in the round, and limit the length of a run of any particular color. (wikipedia)|
