FW16 trend report: XXL Knitwear
In my opinion fashion doesn’t need to be comfortable. Sometimes you need to suffer a bit to look good. For the ones not agreeing with me, this trend will make you very happy: oversized knitwear. And I mean ‘over-over sized’. Maybe not super practical when you are trying to eat a cup of soup with these extra long arms. But at least you will be super comfortable, warm and cozy while doing so. The king of XXL knitwear and clothing this Fall/Winter is Raf Simons. For Spring 2016 Raf Simons showed cropped, sort of shrunken knits. For Winter he goes the opposite way by showing extremely oversized knits and coats.
