The Che­nille Show­down

Love it or hate it, it’s back – but would you go there? The Look team hash it out…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Be­tween the re­turn of cord, cash­mere and the teddy coat, it’s clear that be­ing cosy is top of the fash­ion for­mula this sea­son. The lat­est trend is no ex­cep­tion: che­nille. It’s the vel­vety yarn that comes weaved or knit­ted, and while you prob­a­bly know it best in jumper form, au­tumn/ win­ter of­fers up a whole load of shapes and styles. We’re talk­ing dresses, roll necks, scarves – the lot. But what does the Look team really think of this retro fab­ric re­vival? Act­ing Ed­i­tor Max­ine Eggen­berger says: ‘Yes, yes, yes! It’s the new velvet – the sort of fab­ric you can dress up with a vinyl mini skirt af­ter dark, or stay caj with jeans dur­ing the day. I’m so glad it’s back.’ Act­ing Deputy Ed­i­tor Giselle Wain­wright isn’t so keen: ‘I really hate tex­ture, it makes my skin crawl. It re­minds me of my mum dress­ing me for a party when I was eight – you can guess what a treat that was.’ What­ever your thoughts, this is one trend im­pos­si­ble to ig­nore!
