It's true that crocheted fabrics can sometimes appear, well, homely. They're lovely, sure, but they can also remind you of an arts-and-crafts project that your grandmother worked on over the cold winter months. Well, hold on to your hooks, ladies — this shop owner may have figured out a way to make crochet cooler than you could ever have imagined.
Elenora, spotted on the streets of Milan, wears a knit dress we're positive Grams never attempted, along with bold-colored accessories, copper-ombre tresses, and a collection of ink that all work together to add an edge to the otherwise sweet look. Break out the yarn — we may have just found inspiration for this fall's ultimate DIY project.
