Centine, I am truly impressed with your Norwegian sweater. I had no idea you owned such a garment. You're full of surprises!
But now to the topic at hand. When I first saw that Ashish collection I couldn't look past the similarities in styling to previous Romance Was Born collections, more specifically the pom-pom adorned headwear.

And when I saw the Ashish Norwegian knits I instantly thought of the Stella McCartney Fall 2007 collection:

So basically the Ashish Collection for me was just a mash up of these two collections with some neon animal print thrown on for good measure. Now I'm not saying the results of such a combination were necessarily all that bad, just a bit derived.
