Agyness Inspirations

Wool was big in the 50s up till the 70's. Once a staple clothing material, the use of wool declined massively and it's only in the last few years that it has started making a strong comeback, with luxury fashion's new found love of formalwear and knitwear. 2012 was the year of tweed, with catwalks at Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Michael Kors all favouring it over more clumsy materials.

And it makes sense really, with the knitting trend that took over London by storm (they have gone mad for Wool parties in NY now too, with the launch of Wool and the Gang going stateside), it very much fits with the androgenous big wooly jumper and tight leggings look that Agyness Deyn was made so famous from, which she pairs well with her checked dresses and playsuits. And it makes any summery dress look that little bit more edgy, and also last through winter.
For key pieces that fit with the wool trend, just check out Wandering Mind's knitwear selection, for a mixture of tightly fitting wool jumpers and Aggy-style checked shift Dresses, for that quintessentially British effect.
