5 September, 2022 The Art of Knitwear

Though our collective infatuation with knitwear had taken hold long before the pandemic, not-too-distant lockdowns have only fortified our love for its soft, artfully spun tactility. 

Whether classic and preppy or subversive and sensual, the category’s crafted a dynamic profile in recent years, with new season pieces pushing the boundaries even further. Here: the new knitwear to know (you can thank us later).




The cable knit sweater is an enduring winter wardrobe staple. A polished foundation piece that pairs back with your other closet classics, the cable knit’s subtle yet striking details have us reaching for it year-round. Lou Lou Studios’ oversized ivory-coloured iteration is a stylish take on the old favourite – we love a crew neckline and ribbed cuffs. For a riff on the cable knit style, look to Staud’s Hampton Sweater in Ivory Multi. The black accented cross-stitch, boyfriend shape and zip-front neckline are perfect for trans-seasonal Spring evenings.






Or any colour, really. Injecting some sunshine into your knitwear brightens your palette, and pairs back effortlessly with neutral staples such as blue denim jeans or a black silk slip skirt. We’re currently coveting the Wynn Hamlyn’s Walter Knit Sweater in Marigold. Woven from a cosy fabric blend and cut with a centre front zip closure, this is the ultimate Springtime staple for when the weather won’t make up its mind.






Whether evoking the classic, French-girl cool Breton stripe, or a nod to 60s mini-dress nostalgia, there are many ways to embrace a monochrome knit moment this season. We’re practically living in Kitri April Polo Knit in Red Stripe currently – its rhinestone buttons and a collared finish make it the perfect pairing for leather trousers or blue denim jeans – while Wynn Hamlyn's Mosaic Knit Dress offers a playful mod moment (loose + sleeveless + mini = fun).






Mention of knitwear usually leads to visions of thick sweaters or scarves, but there’s something to be said for a full-length look. Anna Quan’s Penelope Dress in Pepper features an elegant collared neckline, softly pleated silhouette and button-down front , and styles beautifully with a pair of slingback heels or boots for cooler climates. Wynn Hamlyn Origami Dress in Rosso Melange, meanwhile, embraces a more vibrant colour palette – rich blood orange hues are rendered in lightweight ribbed cotton, with cut-out detailing and a midi hemline.
