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.
