As we prepare for a winter spent inside the four walls of our homes, AISPI brings to you a curation of not-so-ugly sweaters that are perfect for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and even beyond! Check them out below and let us know what you think –
Crafted from Allude’s proprietary cashmere is as luxurious as the come and is available in every silhouette imaginable; from hoodies to cardigans and with fashionable details like puffed sleeves and missy collars, we love everything about the brand’s collection. We also love how easy they are to style; dress them up or dress them down – they’ll look stunning either way. Allude also has a Cashmere Clinic service wherein they offer repair, care and consulting services on your favourite cashmere pieces.
Evoke the sweetness of summer this holiday season with Cocoa Cashmere; we love the brand’s line of beautiful bright (think cornflower blue, juicy peach, and electric pink) sweaters that are crafted from cashmere sourced from the brand’s own farm in Alashan and are sure to bring a smile on your faces. If you’re looking for a spot of cheer amidst the pandemic, then Cocoa Cashmere might be just what you’re looking for.
Quirky cool Alexandra Moura’s clothing is not for the faint hearted. One look at their vivid prints that range from hand-drawn scribbles to graffiti-style lettering against an electric blue backdrop will have you reaching for your wallet, even if it’s only to satisfy the collector inside you.
Reimagining the classic V-neck sweater is something the Absolut Cashmere team takes seriously. Very seriously. The brand’s version of the ubiquitous staple is reinvented as one that shows off your femininity and pairs well with every piece from your wardrobe. They also have plenty other silhouettes (think turtlenecks, cardigans and ponchos) and the colours are both bold and soft. All of Absolut’s sweaters are put together by using one of the finest fibre variants – Mongolian cashmere.
A luxury concept store based in Victoria, 50 m is a fashion lover’s dream come true; from accessories to clothing to jewellery, their collection of pieces is as unique as you can imagine but we especially love their knitwear edit that, true to the store’s spirit, is every bit as unusual as you can imagine. From cropped sweaters and knitted vests to half knitted jumpers and printed sweatshirts, take your pick from 50 m’s one-of-a-kind winterwear edit.
