There’s no point in denying it any longer, the autumn months are well and truly upon us now. It’s therefore time to think about sprucing up that wardrobe with some key winter pieces…and you need look no further than knitwear.
 
Pringle of Scotland is a brand that reigns supreme when it comes to the art of using wool. Despite having roots firmly implanted in tradition, innovation is what is driving the label forwards. For AW14, knitwear was taken to another level and given a 3D treatment. 
 
Trust Marc Jacobs to do the unthinkable…knitted flares? Why ever not? His high-waisted ribbed trousers, made of the finest cashmere, can be paired with a matching sweater and scarf. That’s effortlessness and style rolled into one, à la Marc Jacobs. 
 
Is it possible to go overboard with knitwear? According to fashion’s favourite twins, Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen, it isn’t. Oversized was a key word for The Row’s AW14 collection, which combined texture with strong shapes, The show opened with some impressive knitted looks, proof that knitwear is justn't about boring old jumpers.  
 
Known for pushing the boundaries of knitwear, Mark Fast shows us the colourful side of AW14 in a collection called “Toxic Monsoon”. With electric blue and vibrant orange forming the basis of the collection, Fast makes sure those wearing his designs will stand out in the crowd.

As well as creating clothes to keep you toasty warm, these designers are trying to prove a point: knitwear can also be a powerful fashion statement.
