Knits Are In … for Eyeglasses Too!


Fall is just around the corner and with it comes a whole new fashion season.  Knits figured prominently on the Fall 2012 runways of Chanel, Stella McCartney, Ferragamo, Мark Jacos, Michael Kors, Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren, Giambattista Valli, Rocha, Sonia Rykel, Giambattista Valli, Yohji Yamamato, and bio-morphism by Victoria Barlett.  Crocheted vests and shawls are making a comeback alongside the complimentary textures of tweed and lace.

A growing number of celebrities have taken up knitting and crocheting, including Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker and Hilary Swank.  And knits are appearing as part of household décor in the form of picture frames, pillows, lamp shades, afghans and even furniture coverings. In fact, artist Agata Olek crocheted almost every inch of the furnishings inside her New York apartment.

Inspired by this craze, we’ve crocheted several eyeglass frames, which you can see on display in our front windows.
