Sophistication and timeless style are the hallmarks of elegance, whether at a metropolitan cocktail hour or a comfortable get-together at a weekend getaway. That is the inspiration for this chic new collection of patterned garments that have the lines and understated elegance of town and country. Contemporary Classics offers 24 beautiful designs with chic styles ranging from a black turtleneck sweater, which can be paired with cropped pants for a classic, yet mod look, to an oversized sweater with a cowl-neck hood for the pulled-together, yet relaxed look. Authored by accomplished knitwear designer, Jean Moss, who has knitted for such fashion icons as Ralph Lauren, offers this unique collection of sophisticated fashion. Learn how to create from this fabulous selection of beautiful designs a glamorous lacy shawl; a short-sleeved, open-collar sweater; a sleeveless knee-length dress; a Chanel-inspired, collarless jacket with pocket embellishments; and a delicate, silvery cape for enchanting evenings out. Using a broad assortment of contemporary yarns, the signature classics are knit in sophisticated colors that complement any outfit whether formal or casual.
Some styles never go out of fashion because their elegance and simplicity have a timeless quality that endures as other fashions come and go. This new collection epitomizes intangible yet chic, classic style of the town-and-country sensibility. Stunning, easy-to-knit sweaters, jackets, twin sets, capes and boleros are inspired by the garments of classic designers and are brought up-to-date with contemporary yarns.
