Do these designs look familiar to you? The one on the bottom is from Rebecca No. 29, which came for Winter 2005, I believe. On the top left you'll find a design from the brand new IK for Fall 2007, and on the top right is a design from the new Fall 2007 Vogue Knitting.
Fascinating, no? Actually, I really like the one from Vogue. It looks streamlined, and the pattern seems like it would be okay to follow. When the first one came out in Rebecca, I liked it as well, except it has a batwing silhouette which I don't think would be flattering on everyone. Well, okay, me. The IK version looks a little bulky.
So does this confirm that Europe is at least two years ahead of us in fashion?
