We are all focused on the future, but sometimes the most interesting ideas come from the past. Take this issue of Italian fashion magazine Bella dated 15th December 1955.
The issue was mainly dedicated to knitwear, considered at the time (as the magazine states) as a great way to display one's personal skills and style. On the cover a model wears a cropped white jacket with a metallic yarn motif on the front, a design dubbed "Snow White", while inside there was a photoshoot featuring several versatile designs (each of them with a different name, such as "Sole d'inverno", which means "Winter Sun", "Queen of Hearts" or "Dolomites"), from the functional and practical to the seductively sensual.
The images were accompanied by detailed descriptions that encouraged readers to make the designs by hand. So that's something we are missing in today's fashion industry: supplements about knitting with instructions on how to make something.
You may argue that nowadays it is possible to find such projects all over the Internet, buy patterns on eBay or even watch videos and tutorials on YouTube. But it would be nice if every now and then a major fashion magazine would publish a special issue or a supplement showing knitwear designs accompanied by instructions that explain how to make them.
