Key Trends for AW23 knitwear trends are in the following categories:
- Future Classics
- Breton Stripe
- Sports Details
- Blue and Green
- English Heritage
Shall we jump in?
Future classic is about refined styling - classic clean-cut lines, where everything works back with a blazer. Classic core colours like white, navy, cream and ochre play important roles here.
The Breton Stripe
Oh my goodness, there is SO much Breton Stripe around, we can't get enough of this classic trend that has become a wardrobe staple. Perfect for Maxted we love a trend that comes with nostalgia and history.
Here is where we can have a little bit of fun, play with colour or add a styling detail into our designs. Sports Detailing is all across the catwalk and feels so fresh in AW23 Knitwear Design.
Blue and Green
My Mum always told me 'Blue and Green shouldn't be seen,' but on the contrary, this colour combination feels fresh.
It's how you style them together that makes the difference. I love the Sandro blue check coat worn back with the green zip through knit pullover.
Camel its everywhere! It's such a great way to elevate an outfit and always gives off an English Heritage feel. I love how different tones of Camel and ochre work together for a head to toe tonal look.
Mohair knitwear for AW23
Yarns & stitches create the texture in knitwear and working with a hairy yarn like Mohair is so much fun. It adds another dimension to mohair knitwear styles. I often pair mohair with a plain stitch to let the yarn do all the talking.
Mohair knitwear is so versatile it works from fine gauge styles to chunky knits.
English Heritage Knitwear
It's not just me that loves English Heritage styling, it seems like everyone has gone down the garden path this season.
There is a certain edge that redefines the styling, the heavy chunky black boots and sunglasses say it all.
Grunge- it's back. While the 90s and grunge are making a come back, it's not a style I typically favour. Therefore there won't be a large amount of pieces influenced by this style in our AW23 knitwear collection but I will make sure there are some black roll necks and cardigans to make our Melbournites happy.
Plus, I do love heading out for dinner in mid-winter wearing head to toe black with a red lip- tres chic!
Let the textures do the talking.
