WGSN - THE V-NECK

Category Update S/S 19 - Women & Young Women: Knitwear
The V-neck knit boasts ongoing commercial appeal, loved for its simple, everyday wearability. From high-street to premium level brands, V-necks are versatile enough to punctuate every S/S 19 drop, from spring-transition to high summer. Texture & surface: from crafty crochet and delicate sheers, to sleek minimalism, Vnecks accrue interest and newness with creative knit constructions. Luxe casual: slouchy shapes are furthered with stretched-out Vs, extra-long sleeves and loose shapes. Despite relaxed connotations, knits seem refined thanks to cashmere and merino wool blends. New classics: V-neck knits feature fresh silhouettes, from youthful abbreviations to sophisticated slim-fit cuts. The classic collegiate knit sheds past-seasons' oversized shapes for sleek, body-skimming proportions that feel new.
