A Paler Shade

Flipping through the fashion pages of yesteryear is always a good place to draw inspiration from when creating a knitwear collection, and the design team at Sirdar clearly did just that.  Translating the essence of old Hollywood and the ‘cool glam’ look of screen legend, Grace Kelly, who captivated us with her timeless elegance and fairytale princess style, Sirdar presents their latest compilation, Ella, sixteen designs for women and girls in a lightweight cotton yarn, with a palette of creamy muted tones, sun-kissed with a demure trace of glimmer.

Coco Chanel said it so well, “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”  Her iconic collarless jacket designed in the 1920’s has never lost its appeal and continues to inspire a classic silhouette.  This parfait pink version recreates the texture of nubby tweed with two-row contrast striping and a clever slip stitch.  Candy Pink and Pearlescent (shown above).
