Heritage gets a newly spun makeover.
Chunky rib jumpers, slub knits, sweater dresses and polo necks. Doesn’t sound like catwalk fare, does it? Not until now. Expect comfort and conceptual to make peace as handicraft gets the haute treatment. Earthy wools and oversized silhouettes find expression in manifold combinations with layering de rigeur for the 2.0 knit wit. Cosy starts now. About time...
* Snuggle up in a sweater dress as seen at Sportmax and Helmut Lang. Wear sleek and body con with heels or thigh-high boots for added sex appeal.
* Brave it head-to-toe with a sleek polo and maxi skirt pairing as seen at Stella McCatney (flatforms optional) or layer a knit tunic and trouser duo a la Calvin Klein.
* Too much? Try a supersize Irish herringbone scarf from Stable.ie (€220) or a punchy print from Electronic Sheep.
* Better yet, get nostalgic for ribbed tights – the old school favourite getting top marks this season.
