Notes: In fashion, one day you're in, the next day you're out . . . and the day after that, you're back in again. Designers are always referring to fashion's rich history as they imagine its present and future, and retro looks remain ever-fresh as they are renewed "and restyled" for the next generation of wearers. That's precisely what top knitwear designer Veronik Avery is up to in Knitting Classic Style. Mining fashion's endless archive, Avery has created 35 smashingly contemporary garments that take their cues from decades and designers past. The collection of clothing and accessories Avery presents is organized into four thematic chapters that highlight women's wear, men's wear (and its influence on women's and children's clothing), traditional ethnic garb, and sportswear.
