Knitwear Happy Hanako Style!





Photos From; Hanako Narahira


As you lot probably know by now I don't and can't blog for the hell of it, I only ever write or sometime rant about fashion that really brightens my eyes and makes me feel all inspired and generally hyper. I get this this genuine need and burning desire to tell everyone about a gem then afterwards I self combust from too much innovative fashion constructions and regain my energy, for the next little surprise that comes my way! I'm always very inspired by the super comments I receive I love nothing more then passing on fashion info for others to than further explore and develop a romance with (perhaps the last is just moi?) I sometimes find it difficult to get my head around the fact that people actually stop by to read my pondering's and very much long entry blabbers on various a fashion subject. So before this post begins to sound like a over the top award acceptance speech 'Oscar style'...I'd just like to say a big massive genuine *THANK YOU'S* before festive fun takes over my world and I go and forget ( this isn't to say I will be neglecting my pc and keyboard during Christmas. Hell no way! I'm forever writing and consumed by fashion design, besides I don't want to miss out. Fashions face changes every day!).

For sometime now I've been very desperate and excited to feature one of my favourite fashion designer (or knitwear designer to be textile, scientifically exact!) Hanako Narahira. As a girl often blinded by colour and shape Hanako can do no wrong, this is some serious innovative and extremely modern take on knitwear. I only wish I could sit and observe just how this designer makes such delicate shapes and textures on the old knitting machine. Theres a combo of loops, hoops twists, chunky bright patch work style panels and plenty of cleaver quirky collars. With all the above combined Hanako Narahira's collection can only be described as an childrens colouring book re-worked in knit form (this is just in case your reading Hanako? A Prettyneons complement)...I really hope Central Saint Martins future fashion star continues to colour in and go over those restricted lines; one thing is for certain I simply cannot wait to see what this talented designer does next on that magical knitting machine... yarns away! ( Such a poor and very bad pun, *sorry).
