Those statement knits

James Long is perhaps better known for his menswear, and has only made 3 womenswear collections to date, but judging by this latest collection he'll be in the spotlight for many fashion weeks to come.

The man loves his knits whether for men or women and says 'You always know you're going to get a great knit from me season after season. I've always really loved Missoni as he was the king of knitwear - I would love to work with Missoni.'
