Stitched Up— Representations of Contemporary Vintage Style Mania and the Dark Side of the Popular Knitting Revival

Dirix, Emmanuelle (2014) Stitched Up— Representations of Contemporary Vintage Style Mania and the Dark Side of the Popular Knitting Revival. Textile: The Journal of Cloth and Culture, 12 (1). pp. 86-99. ISSN 1475-9756

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Dirix, Emmanuelle
Description:

This article is a critical examination of the visual culture that accompanies and promotes the current knitting revival. It examines the revival’s roots, its impact, and most importantly its place within the contemporary vintage craze witnessed in style and popular culture. By focusing on issues of New Domesticity and conspicuous leisure it aims to open up a discussion on the more problematic ideas that underpin these seemingly fun and sugary images.
