Find Inspiration for Fall with These 16 Unconventional Knitwear Runway Pieces

After a few seasons around the sartorial block, your usual, useful jumpers and cozy, cashmere knits seem a bit drab and worse for wear. But this fall, the runways played host to a more cutting-edge direction that transformed traditional sweaters into innovative, 21st Century knitwear that’s nearly unwearable — nothing is too big, too bold, too intricate or too in-your-face for this new set of sweaters. Designers like Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Kenzo and more went veritably mad with endless possibility. Brazen neon shades, adorned with studs, spikes, pearls and floral embellishments, finished with fur or simply unfinished and unraveling or ripped, roped and chunky, knitwear was far removed from the classic layering piece we know it to be. All of this innovation makes it the one statement piece you’ll be sporting with pride when the temperature dips.
