Autumn has arrived with rain and wind. Guess I have always loved that season. After a nice After-Summer with plenty of sunshine and the little trip to Italy I am totally up for evenings at home knitting seasonal items. I still have a lace shawl on the needles.
During my Italy trip I found out that knitted garments are still very fashionable. In Milan this window display at Stefanel got my attention.
But there was more...Much more. This hand knit sweater in cashmere at Hermes caught my eye.Agnes aka Stekelbakske I can show the pattern here. Thanks again Agnes!!
I am definitely going to try it out and perhaps use it in the front of a cardi I would like to knit in J&S yarn...
Last week I visited the just opened exhibition "Ontrafelt" in Museum Twentse Welle in Enschede (very convenient, it is the city I work. This exhibition was first showed in the MoMu in Antwerp and now a big sellection is shown in Enschede. One word: Wonderfull and we are planning to go there with all students. Just some pictures here from items I loved.Vivienne Westwood.

Must go back now to Milan because I did visit his shop in the Via della Spiga.
Milan... that was really an exiting afternoon with 2 colleagues. The shop from Blumarine with the green tables with pink roses outside..Moschino with a Postcard from Paris and Love letters on the floor...Dolce & Gabbana
But than...after all the luxury came the new Shop from Pirelli. The brand famous for rubber tires and the famous calendar.Just opened 3 days before we came.. A little film can be seen here and the falling water projected on the floor was simply amazing. I hardly did dare to step onto it...
Every now and than I can get very exited about things happening in the fashion world and this was one of those moments. Such a great concept.. the wall with yellow wellingtons.
The racingcar above the men garments.
Next time I have to buy a coat over there...
But..back to Autumn..
Did bake a cake with plums yesterdayafternoon.
Nothing can beat the smell of a freshly baked cake. Time for tea now and a slice ofcourse..
