Classic old-school sweaters are new again

Nanibon Fisherman Style Wool Sweater

Nanibon Fisherman Style Wool Sweater

Old favourites are making a come back! A classic sweater with a modern feel is the hot style of the season. V-necks, crew necks, cardigans, fisherman styles and cable knits are all making appearances, but with updated fabrics and fits.

Sweaters this season are tailored with a modern twist. Look for slim fitting v-necks that are dressy with a shirt and tie, or more casual with a crew neck tee.  Classic charcoals and black look sharp, and if you’re looking for something with a little more edge, check out the deep purples. The beautiful fabrics have given new life to these old favourites. This season boasts light-weight, washable cottons that give you comfort and easy care, as well as cashmeres that are the ultimate in luxury. Need to cut the winter chill? Look for cozy wools to keep you stylish and warm. 

Sporty sweaters have also been re-invented for winter 2011. Hoodies get a fashion forward edge with a slouchy fit, or maybe you prefer the stylish, trimmer look. Retro-style tracksuits with a modern flare are sure to be a hit. The new activewear fabrics are more technical for the ultimate in performance, while being light weight and quick drying.   

Our picks for the season? You can’t go wrong with the Nanibon Fisherman or the Victorinox modern zip cardigan. The Hugo Boss Green Label Snuggel is a great slim fit and known as the warmest hoodie you can find.
