Stoffa Ivory Cashmere Shirt

Technically labelled as a shirt, but seeing as it's wool cashmere, I would personally dub it as a knit or something alike. Hailing from New York, Stoffa are an amazing new brand that are truly implementing slow fashion cycles with made to measure garments across all categories. Not to be bias however Stoffa are quickly becoming my favourite for their quality and classically refined staples.

 

 

Maison Margiela Destroyed Sweatshirts

Everyone loves an old sweatshirt - soft, loved and perfectly worn in, I usually sleep in my new knits to purposely soften them up and wear them out. Now, if you were to try and achieve this look on purpose, it may be a difficult task at hand to get it just right. Luckily, Margiela have the most perfectly destroyed, "worn" sweatshirts, layered in to keep you warm (and looking perfectly disheveled) throughout the winter.

Always innovative in deconstructing everything including knits, we turn to none other than Eckhaus Latta, season after season to teach us how it can be done/undone.

Look no further than the French to do things right. Simple, quality and this season, packing with colour - for a basic crewneck knit look no further than the forever reliant A.P.C.
