Show synopsis The post-war period of the late 40's, 50's and 60's seems a golden, unhurried age, and it's to this era, with its mood of renewal, that we look for fashion inspiration. Drawing on old photographs, films and archives of knitting patterns to bring this period look alive, the designers whose work is featured in this book have updated and adapted classic designs to make them easy to wear, while at the same time being true to the spirit of the age. The collection encapsulates the feel for quality materials, lasting craftsmanship, classic looks and, above all, a real sense of style. The knitwear found here won't date in the passing of a season; it will improve with time and become a treasure in its own right. It features 30 original knitted pieces for women and men from top designers. It includes colored charts and diagrams, and clear knitting instructions. Beautiful photographs throughout capture the spirit of the post-war era and places it in a contemporary framework.
