To finish, I want to post a photo of a really unusual knitted coat. It's part of Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall collection. I think it's really interesting, and I like the leather cuffs, collar and belt, although I wonder just how wearable they might be. Talk about large-scale knitting; here it is.

I think the diagonal asymmetry of the piece is what appeals to me, besides the colors of course.

My goodness, I've never even dreamed I'd see such a coat! Thanks Liana, and thanks for the blog award. Hmmm, now, who to tag...

That jacket is very interesting, I agree with you. Thank you for your comments on Marfy's pattern. I know you have done absolute beauties with Marfy's before. I look to all of them very attentively. You are very skillful. Regards, Anne from Montreal.

Thanks for the Kreative award, Liana! Time to play tag! I love the leather on this coat.

Mardel said...

Wow, Liana! That coat is really cool. I can see how it might appeal, beyond just the colors that is. The asymmetry and the binding effect with the leather is very interesting.

Alexandra said...

I enjoy all you do so much. An expert level I will never achieve, and that's many ways you remind me of the expertise my mother possessed for anything creative: sewing,knitting, doll making, restoration of dolls, etc. All the things I haven't the patience for but admire so much. She even had an old huge room sized loom that is now in a Village Museum in Minnesota. Keep up the good work.

Oh My! I love this coat. Where did you find the photo?

Liana said...

LMH, It was on WWD (Women's Wear Daily). They may have the same thing on

Liana--thanks! I will go look for it.
