The shapes. Ohhh, the shapes! The structure, the whimsy, the romantic historicism, all found in the knits of this week's designer!

Pictured is the lovely and unique Rivulet. I've picked this piece because I think it's a very good example of her wonderful, creative vision. I love the melding of historic and contemporary fashion elements; together, they create a whole new fashion sensibility that (more than a little) reminds me of one of my favourite fashion designers, Alexander McQueen.

Sett Road Stole shows off this designer's ability to play with shape in a very interesting and attractive way. This stole is a traditional stole shape, but the pattern's photographs demonstrate the designer's creativity in manipulating that shape into wonderfully wearable, and entirely varying, garments.

Of course, there are many other wonderful pieces by greedy - make sure to check out her Rav designer page! But for now, I'll leave you with one final lovely, the Cobblestone Neckwarmer. Just check out the hardware on this piece!
