Modern Chic Knitwear
In the past, grandmothers would knit by hand practical, warming clothes for their grandchildren. These days, however, modern knitwear is a trendy fashion because it draws so much attention to whoever wears it. Hardly any other material offers so much potential when it comes to modifying individual style. A thick sweater in combination with a lace skirt, a finely woven cardigan worn with casual jeans, or a long knitted coat on top of a short skirt – the combinations are endless. In addition, woollen wear is incredibly comfortable and functional; just a thin jacket will provide warmth on chilly summer nights, while coarsely knit clothes are very warm in winter.
Interesting historical facts about knitting
While following political debates on TV in the 1980's, German people were amazed to see more and more male delegates of the Green Party knitting while listening to speeches. What many of the viewers didn't realize was that in medieval times, knitting was primarily a male activity, and was one of the skills which fell into the guild of clothmakers. It wasn't until the 19th century that women took over the reins of knitting, doing piecework and crafting socks, beanies and gloves in times of need. This was when knitting began to be seen as a typically female domain. In the 1860's, William Cotton of Britain invented a knitting machine, thus beginning the industrial manufacture of woollen clothing items.
Shopping for knitwear in Berlin
The creative individuality that characterizes life in Berlin is what gives knitwear a special place in this vibrant city's fashion scene. Fortunately, the mass-produced, “cookie cutter” knitwear found in big shopping chains doesn't even come close to exhausting all the choices to be found in the in the realm of knitted and crocheted clothing. Lovers of extraordinary fashion should keep their eyes peeled for those little shops that can meet their unique standards and preferences. For example, where else but Berlin would you find a one of a kind Norwegian style knitted overall? Naturally the choices don't need to be quite so eccentric; a pastel coloured cardigan with a special pattern to highlight one's personality could also be found.
When confident and fashion-conscious women go shopping for knitwear in Berlin, they can look forward to enjoying a meaningful search for their desired items, rather than a rush through one mainstream chain after another.
And what about men? Long gone are the days of the homemade knit sweater, dutifully worn because it was a gift from Grandma. Men, too, have realized that fashion leaves an impression and can make a statement. However, any man who brings home a comfortable XXL knit sweater may not find it the next time he opens his closet: chances are good that his girlfriend will have taken a shine to it and decided to use it for herself! Because women know what they want, and what they want is wool.
