Knit Women’s Coat – The Laced Triumph

Sunday, 09 October 2011

Knit Women’s Coat Today the knitwear is presented in so many styles and it is so popular that no single autumn and spring collections can do without hosiery. Knit women's coats are offered in classic, sporty, romantic, vintage, casual and ethnic styles. The demand for knit coats grows in line with the more increasing range of color and texture of woolen yarn as merino wool, angora, alpaca, Kashmir. Globally known brands launch knit coats for women in their latest collections and most celebrities today appear wearing knitwear for many occasions and that's hard to picture that some time back it was something different.

A classic coat is the long upper wear with the lining. Poncho, or capelet, also falls to the category of coats. Recently the new poncho design is presented as the short coat flaring from the collar area. This coat has long sleeves unlike the traditional poncho but they are not visually seen inside the wide flares of the coat. Today fashion designers offer laced light summer coats.  Poncho is the national clothing of Indian tribes residing in Latin America. The coat, mostly updated by French and British designers, has some Spanish origin. Long time ago, in the sixteenth to seventeenth century the peasants in Spain would wear something like the modern coat with the cape. The Netherlands was then the Spanish colony and, thus, the Hollanders borrowed that outwear at ease. Moreover, they used to wear it as the court wear. Being the attire attributed to the noble people, the coat was introduced in France as the military outfit.

Despite the knitting came from ancient time, the jersey did not referred to the trendy fabric. It was mostly used as the base for the outfit for peasants, French sailors and workers. Gabriel Chanel was one of the legendary couturiers who made the jersey fashionable.

At the very start Coco leased a shop but she was not eligible to sell the fashion wear to avoid competing with other traders. But Coco was the genius designer and her way to triumph was onto the jersey she used as the base of her collections. Coco did not create such legendary iconic coats for keepsville as her little black dress, though some of the motifs she introduced, showed the essential impact on the development of knitwear. In the late 50s and early 60s the Italian fashion designer Sebastian launched long knit coats with the clearly sharp outlines. The point is that the designer used the contrasting trimming as Chanel used to.

The first haute couture knitwear collection was made by Rosita and Ottavio Missoni during the 60s hippies epoch. The Missoni brand still keep on creating knitt women’s wear exclusively, and the others include ADAM, Akris, Andrew Gn, Badgley Mischka, D&G, Banana Republic and Detacher. Nevertheless, the fashion designers of the new epoch gave a subject of knit coat the second thought. The jersey was offered in such areas where it could not compete with conventional coats from tweed and Cashmere. The knit coat trimmed with the lamb fur by Karl Lagerfeld made for Chanel for Autumn-Winter’10-2011. Anna Sui made the whole series of coat of violet color decorated with the floral patterns for evening outs. The faery collection by Sonia Rykiel differed with the flexuous sutures, stunning shapes and the cape trimmed with flounces. The collection by Stella McCartney is known for knit coats imitating fur coats by using oblong eyelets.

Tracy Reese and Diane von Fürstenberg prefer sticking to classic style and the coats they offer in collections remind of long classic cardigans. The coats with the texturized patters by Ralph Lauren also exert attention.

Knit coats are favourite outwear for celebrities, either. So, Fergie from Black Eyed Peas and the wife to the actor Joshua Duhamel, was wearing an elegant knit coat by Missoni for the Sundance Film Festival events in the Utah State.

Movie stars as Sienna Miller, Lindsay Lohan and Gwyneth Paltrow also like wearing various knit coats. The latter shared with the reporters that the knit coat should a little bitwider in shoulders, and the best brand for her is Stella McCartney. Winona Ryder, Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz committed to make the knit wear more popular.
