Crocheted “granny squares” had a brief moment on the runway last year, lead by Christopher Kane. But for the most part they’re not something we think of as the relevant to crochet as fashion. That’s no issue here, though: Diana Melfi’s shoot Granny Takes a Trip may be inspired by granny squares, but not in the way that you might think. Instead she took her grandmother’s meticulously crocheted blankets and used them as backdrops to a psychedelic series of photos, with makeup artist Pia Lorena Bedregal creating a beauty look to match for each.
