suddenly everywhere: split-back

La fente dans le dos

I’ve started noticing this trend in patterns recently, especially in the new spring and summer collections. The split-backs are having a moment. The proof in pictures.

J’ai remarqué cette tendance grandissante récemment, en particulier dans les nouvelles collections printemps été. Les fentes dans le dos sont tendance. La preuve par l’image.

  • Francis – Olga Buraya-Kefelian: an older pattern but right on trend / un patron plus ancien mais pile dans la tendance

  • Vogue Knitting Early Spring 16 : High Low Tunic – Julie Turjoman
  • Knit Picks Aura collection: Chilla – Amanda Schwabe

It is a good choice over light summer dresses or to show a hint of skin during the warm season. Do you like it? Don’t hesitate to share other patterns of the kind, and let me know if a split-back top is your To Knit list for the summer.

C’est un bon choix pour porter sur des robes d’été légères ou dévoiler un soupçon de peau pendant la saison chaude. Vous aimez?  N’hésitez pas à partager d’autres modèles du genre, et dites-moi si vous prévoyez de tricoter un petit haut à fente cet été.

  1. I love the split back, and you’ve done a fabulous round up on them! I don’t know if I’ll knit one, I wonder if they are perhaps a bit trendy? Hmm. They do look good.

    • Thank you Julie. I see what you mean by too trendy maybe – cute now but would we wear it a lot? I like the Aurora though: you can wear it both ways, open in the back or the front.
