ELEANOR AMOROSO F/W 2012!

Thousands of knots

In the age of fast fashion, the demand for one-of-a-kind showpiece garments is as precious as ever. One of the most wearable options for this kind of investment is knitwear. Joining the likes of Mark Fast, Craig Lawrence, and Sandra Backlund, Eleanor Amoroso is the latest novelty knitwear designer pushing boundaries when it comes to materials and technique. Steadily climbing up the ranks in the incubator that is London, Amoroso is having her turn, and in this go around, macramé knitting takes the spotlight.

Eleanor Amoroso´s A/W collection for 2012 is one of our favorite colections. We are in LOVE!

Amoroso first decided to fashion dresses with the knotting technique while creating her graduate collection at the University of Westminster, and has since come to develop this signature style through experiments with a number of creative processes. Citing Japanese rope bondage and tribal jewelry as references in seasons past, Amoroso creates each one of her pieces from scratch, creating body and texture through permutations of the thousands of knots she ties by hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having developed increasingly sculptural pieces, for F/W 2012-13, she adds copper hardware and feathers to the intricate knotting, while the loose fringing gets a boost from an ombré treatment.

ABOUT:

London-based designer Eleanor Amoroso launched her label last year after attracting attention for her uniquely handcrafted graduate collection. The brand encompasses modern elegance and a tough, darker side with perhaps the most intriguing thing being the fact that each piece is made entirely by hand and not machine. Her work has been previously described as a ‘commemoration of the forgotten art of craftsmanship’ and was featured on the cover of Volt Magazine on model Alice Dellal, just months after graduating.
