The humble sweater has been through a steady fashion revolution over the past few years. At mytheresa.com we have watched with bated breath as the runway converts our movie-night-in attire to runway-worthy couture.
There was that fluffy pink mohair sweater on Nicholas Hoult in 'A Perfect Man', Tom Ford's first movie and possibly the reason we all went bonkers for the fifties for at least three seasons. Or, it was the oversized sweaters on It-models like Anja Rubik running from show to show. A cropped sweater and exposed midriff is a statement worth making, regardless of minus degrees outside. Spring/Summer brings luxurious silk knits, light, transparent and soft. It also offers up everybody’s favorite white-sweater-black-jeans combo of the season. Winter heralds in thick luxurious knits, that either stop under the bust, hang past the knees or end neatly at the waistband. A cable-knit sweater is the sartorial equivalent of a childhood friend, and can be worn with dark sunglasses, over your elegant pencil skirts and pants alike.
Kenzo with its sporty, urban credibility, makes sweaters that, worn over your gym gear, could be a critical rescue plan for impromptu social scenarios. Moncler has started making designer pieces suitable for occasions far from the slopes. Givenchy spells elegance and grace in the form of sweaters for women, with advance class form fitting normally found in good tailoring. But, the label most feverishly on wish lists is Gucci, with ’70s-style ladies sweaters that are rewriting the game entirely. Embroidery, prints and a neat fit that complements billowing skirts or high-waisted flares, Gucci has created sweaters that are fast becoming treasured mementos from a very good season.
Ladies sweaters have replaced the boyfriend sweater, refining a few of the bust and shoulder issues that come with borrowing from men. Oversized sweaters are still a go, worn exactly how you expect, with slim pants or your skinny jeans, and a shoe that fits the function. Try doubling up with a turtleneck underneath and wide-leg pants. The new oversized sweater allows for volume with volume and eliminates frump. A chunky-knit sweater cropped at the belly button is a good way to wear your new flares, and also a fine way to tone down those ridiculously high heeled boots you haven't braved going out in yet. An embellished sweater or a fine-knit crop sweater underneath crisp black overalls for a fresh new season, or teamed with your ultimate pair of high-waisted jeans. Don’t be afraid of mixing textures. Wool sweaters who sit with baroque laces make an elite group, as do ribbed pullovers and tough leathers. We can’t wait to see our favorite runway pieces worn in fresh new ways across the street-style-frenzy of Fashion Week and how blogger reinvent the standard grey sweater.
