Is my current adoration of neckwear beginning to show? Despite the chill in the air and a certain attraction to structural felted wool scarves, I am completely smitten by these elegant accessories from Cloth label’s second collection.
Designer Yang Li is currently studying menswear at the prestigious Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London, but apparently has an eye for the feminine side of things too. My fear of the knot on the left is somewhat allayed by the hope that there’s a sneaky fastening behind it to avoid uncomfortable and unsightly tourniquet incidents.
Best of all, Yang proves that Lycra is more fashionable than a trip to the gym might suggest (exhibit A, on the right), and jersey isn’t just for cows (exhibit B, on the left). Fabric is a wonderful thing when taken into the right hands.

P.S. I first heard about Cloth on the Modamuse blog. Read it and be delighted at what Australian and NZ designers/artisans/crafters are doing.
