Good evening. This is Ikeda.
Whenever I look at collections and read articles from various media outlets, I always wonder, and I've written about this several times in ``Hanashi -Diary-'', but what exactly is a trend?
Even though it is written as this season's trends, there are so many items that it makes you wonder if there are any other elements of clothing left.
I'm thinking that if you think about it in more detail, like "〇〇〇〇" instead of "〇〇," it might become a trend.
I feel like I've written this before, but maybe calling it a trend is the wrong word, since nothing new has been created in the first place.
For me, it would be a good idea to say that the trends of the '00s have come full circle and are being revived.
As someone who selects things that I like, I can't help but think about such things.
I get tired just thinking about the hardships faced by people who follow trends.
Today I would like to introduce you to satou's oshibana knit cardigan, as I write about something that feels like I've seen it not once, but twice or even three times.
I think it's a very satou-like cardigan.
The image source is a cardigan worn by the designer's grandmother.
When you think about it, you might imagine that your grandmother wears a crew neck cardigan.
Am I the only one who thinks this is more of a crew neck than a V neck?
The most distinctive feature is the back part decorated with "pressed flowers" which is the theme of this season.
Here, it is expressed using mesh knitting, giving the impression that pressed flowers are floating in the air.
Depending on the color of the innerwear, the type of pressed flowers and the way the pattern floats will change, so the look will be different depending on how you wear it.
The thread used there is a thick cotton thread with a nappy feel.
Not only that, but special twisted yarn has been added, giving it a texture that looks more like your grandmother has used it for a long time than the shiny new one you just bought.
I even thought it would be okay to just wear it without removing any pilling that might appear.
Of course, the most distinctive feature is the ``pressed flower'' pattern on the back, but personally, what really stood out to me was the size.
I felt that the perfect size made it look like something my grandmother would wear.
Combined with the strength of the ribs, it gives the impression that it looks like something your grandmother would wear, and when you put it on, it turns around and gives you a fresh feeling.
I felt the same way with the 22AW sotogi half zip knit .
This may just be my feeling because I wear loose-fitting clothes, so please take this as my personal opinion.
If you wear this, you might want to go home to see your grandma.
Whether you are looking for a fresh feeling after going around one time, have already gone two or three times, or are about to start your first round, Satou's oshibana knit cardigan is a must-try.
