A/W12 Wardobe Staple: The Fun Sweater

Taylor Tomasi Hill

The sweater is one of those wardrobe heroes that everyone needs. It's one of the few pieces that can stand you in good stead whatever the weather and over the past few years, it's hard quite the transformation. In the past, it had a bit of a bad wrap. The styles felt heavy, boardering on frumpy, and the colours didn't tend to extend too far beyond neutrals like black, grey and nude. The more recent variations, though, are really good.

3.1. Phillip Lim's comic-inspired sweaters got everyone excited for S/S12 and while his offerings for fall are a lot more subdued, they're definitely still something to keep an eye out for. Even Burberry experimented with sweaters this season with their fun owl embroidered options.

As far as colours are concerned, Sonia Rykiel, Missoni and Marni have great bright printed styles while Acne continues to lead the pack with their bright block coloured pieces. If you don't want to spend too much, J. Crew is the place to go. The colour ways and print options are extensive and the quality hold out from season to season. The moral of the story is that you don't need to conform this winter. Just as colour and prints have been for summer, there's no reason why you can't continue it for winter on your knitwear. Who knows, it might actually make you smile and with the British weather the way it is, that's going to help.

Rate or Slate: Solange Knowles In Marni At The CFDA Awards

</p> </p>

Yellow isn't the easiest colour to wear but Solange Knowles works it to perfection. After making a statement in the shade in that Rachel Roy dress at the Met Gala recently and yesterday she opted it for it again at the CFDA Awards.

The DJ wore a yellow paillette patterned sleeveless dress with white panels and a deep V-neck from the Marni S/S12 collection and teamed it with a woven leather satin clutch and perspex heels from Missoni.

Are you a fan of her look?

Rate or Slate: Yasmin Le Bon In Missoni And Monica Vivander

Last night Yasmin Le Bon gave a lesson in summer dressing, as she attended the Royal Academy of Arts' annual summer party. The model chose this statement printed Missoni strapless maxi dress and finished the look off with a statement clutch and earrings by Monica Vivander in what by far was one of the best looks of the evening.

Actresses, Filmmakers, Models And Family Appear In The New Missoni Ad Campaign

Missoni's S/S12 collection was the perfect celebration of dance and Spanish culture so their decision to book Pedro Almodóvar, a famous filmmaker in Spain, make sense. But he's not alone. Along with the usual family line up includes actresses Rossy de Palma and Blanca Suarez and Riccardo Tisci muse, Mariacarla Boscono.

What do you think of the ads?

Get Ready For Another Missoni Collaboration

Missoni are launching another collection and it's not the contemporary line that appears to be on the cards after the success of their collaboration with Target. The brand's latest one-off collection is all in aid of OrphanAid Africa. Launching on November 10th in Milan and November 15th in New York, the capsule collection - called M Missoni for OrphanAid - will help feature 12 pieces all in the brand's signature zig zag print with prices peaking at 120.

The collection sees Margherita Missoni model in the campaign and marks her first collection designed independently. 'The choice of colours was instinctive; it was the combination that I liked the most,' Missoni said when asked about the line. 'Pink is symbolic, it refers to childhood, and red to Africa, and together they were aesthetically pleasing. The pattern in itself is something that is ours, that belongs to us’.

Angela Missoni Created Clothes You'll Want To Dance In For Spring

Missoni are on a high right now. Their Fall 2011 collection was the best I've seen from them in a long while and it shows, as the collection is already doing really well at retail and their highly anticipated collaboration with Target was an instant sell out. While their Spring/Summer 2011 collection is notably different from their fall show, Angela Missoni definitely hit a high note again this season.

Inspired by her daughters arriving home from a night of dancing in Sardinia, the collection was full of fringed necklaces and hemlines, bold colours, assymetric necklines and multi tiered dresses and skirts alongside the brand's signature prints. Often these details came on the same look but did not look fussy or over-the-top. Instead, the playful experimentation with different details this season is exactly what Missoni needs if he wants to keep hold of the younger generation it attracted for fall.
