Rosso, Ruby, Redwood, Magenta, Rage, Cardinal and and and and...
The list of descriptions for red is almost endless, Rowan summed it up with the new magazine 64:
RUBY - the special birthday collection for the 40th anniversary.
Here everything revolves around shades of red, and we can't escape the magic of these colours either. Together with Rowan's new colour card, we'll be indulging in them.
The first thing we notice is designer Zandra Rhodes:
Ssie is an internationally acclaimed artist from England who has already designed clothes for Lady Di.
Zandra's style is glamorous, dramatic with a breeze of wit and exaggeration.
With the model PERINONE she chose the middle way and surprised us with a diva coat that simply looks great!
A clear contrast to this is Sasha Kagan - she studied painting and printmaking and felt drawn to the tradition of the Fair Isle already in her youth.
Sasha is known for her elaborate motifs in Fair Isle, which she brings back from her stays in nature.
Their anniversary model "Maroon" enchants us with the discreet play of the leaves and the simple elegance that we know from films with Audrey Hepburn.
Galina Caroll comes from St. Petersburg, studied industrial design and incorporates her strong connection to constructivism and avant-garde into the Cinnabar model.
Colour nuances create a play of light and shadow of the extra class and modernity.
Lisa Richardson has come up with two red knitted dresses for this occasion and Martin Storey shows us his plait scarf, which is really "WOW" and extremely "RUBY".
The second part of the magazine is dedicated to the new yarn ALPACA CLASSIC and boasts an enormous variety of 17 designs by Lisa Richardson.
Her very relaxing collection rounds off the magazine and leaves nothing to be desired.
Fair Isle patterns traditional or modern, very simple or complex, laces, models with emphasized shoulders and neck, scarves for beginners or advanced, knitted dresses and an extravagant throw-over we particularly liked.
Oh yes: Knitting men, who does not know them, the two weird birds Arne and Carlos created a strong piece:
A sweater with knitted kaleidoscopes (we really recognize a row of figures holding each other's hands and then standing upside down!) with a modern cut - perfect for the 40th anniversary.
