Anuschka Hoevener


I love looking through a young designers' back catalogue to see how they've changed their design aesthetic. I recently wandered through Anuschka Hoevener's entire body of work which spans six collections from 2007 onwards.

Her first collection was very creative, knitwear based and just a bit lovely. The last image shows a headpiece entirely made of knitted balls creating a hat not disimilar to a 1950's hair-do, which I love.

She then carried on to create more knitted pieces including amazing, chunky tubes of scarf that take over the models' neck in the first image. I tried to recreate this last year but alas, got impatient and just settled for creating paper chain style necklaces which you can see in a very old post here.

Since then Anushka has grown up with her designs, creating chic and wearable clothing with stunning neck and headpieces as seen in the greener images. But for S/S 2010, she has made her designs heat friendly by transferring the knitted chains to the simple tops. I love the way that she has kept her creative aesthetic but developed, enhanced and expanded on her initial ideas.

For more info and to see more of her work, visit her website.

  5. Indeed, it is so very interesting to see the evolution of a designer's creations. Her evolution shows a very consistent point of view. The headpiece is just awesome and it does beg for a DIY project, maybe you'll try again with more luck . . . not that the knitted chain wouldn't have been . . . well . . . something :p good effort!

  6. I think we should start doing our own photoshoots, why not give it a go? I can see this working, you may have to get up on a roof like this lady.

  16. Such an interesting lookbook...! I like how the model always seems slightly out of place, like she doesn't really belong in her environment.

  17. Love the shots - at first I thought it might be a COS look book. Very similar in its simplicity and construction.

  20. Like the old and the new designs... My stiff neck cries out for the big, cosy rolled scarf; but what I really fancy is the woollen hat. Such a cool piece!
