KNITWEAR Chanel to Westwood

We popped down to the Fashion & Textiles Museum  to see the Knitwear, Chanel to Westwood, an exhibition comprised mainly of items from the collection of Mark and Cleo Butterfield. The pieces are presented in wooden crates, stacked one on top of the other and are accompanied by images of knitwear from various publications and fashion shoots.     The pair have been collecting pieces of knit and crocheted garments since the 1960’s and they cover a huge amount of years, ranging from late Victorian and Edwardian periods to present day items. Pieces from hand-knitting gurus Patricia Roberts and Bill Gibb are featured along side household names such as Chanel, Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, Zandra Rhodes and Sonia Rykiel. Top tip: Take your sketchpad to the exhibition for some quick drawings! Book tickets here! Check out our knits here!

I Don’t Know. The Weave of Textile Language looks at the importance of textiles throughout history and combines a major exhibition in the Whitechapel Gallery, a large-scale sculptural commission in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and a brand new book. The sculpture is at the Tate Modern until 6th April 2015 and the exhibition is in the Whitechapel Gallery until 14th December.   2. Frieze week did not disappoint this year, firmly placing London on the map as a centre for art. One of our favourite artists we saw this year was recent graduate May Hands. Like Tuttle, her ...
