Know Your Knitwear: This Season's Guide
If you’re after precious fibres and luscious textures, then our latest knitwear arrivals will more than satisfy. But as well as looking good, our top picks are made to feel good, too. Literally. Carefully and sustainably selected fabrics and ethical production make these knitted pieces fashion winners in every sense of the word.
The Style: From black to brown to ecru, ESSE’s sweaters can be worn with just about anything. The V Split and the Slim Crew Sweater are both wardrobe staples that look particularly great layered over shirts and french tucked into your favourite pants.
The Sustainability: All cashmere is definitely not created equal. The precious fibres used in ESSE cashmere are sourced from across Mongolia, before being skillfully transformed and spun by artisans with care and finesse. The brand’s cashmere is also registered with The Good Cashmere Standard (GCS).
The Style: Few do cardigans like Aaizel. Forget frumpy or frilly, these are top half heroes to build an outfit around or effortlessly pair with jeans. Almost teddy-bear soft and with structured draping and high volume sleeves, these are knits that make a statement.
The Sustainability: The choice of fabric is an incredibly important part of Aaizel’s designing process, with sustainability, quality and longevity always in mind. The irresistible mohair wool blend chosen for their Volume Sleeve Cardigan will last for years to come. It’s made ethically in Melbourne by carefully selected partners who align with the label’s values and beliefs around sustainability.
The Style: Whatever your style, Frame has a yarn made for you. You’ll find a range of thickness across the edit, from the firm, tight knit of the Jocelyn Cardigan to the featherweight foundations of the Ribbed Henley Knit - and the beautiful mahogany shade makes for a rich outfit base.
FRAME takes a front-to-back approach to sustainability. Translation? They use a mix of post-consumer recycled materials and pre-consumer environmentally safe fabrics. As well as using recycled cashmere, their knits are made from a blend of organic pima cotton (tended to with traditional methods like crop rotation, mulching and hand-weeding) and Bluesign-certified silk (ethically harvested and manufactured in factors with the highest standards and eco certifications.)
