Take Revenge on Winter: Fall's Warmest Trend.

Knitwear is back with a vengeance for the cooler months and this season it’s the many iterations of the knitted sweater proving to be the hot ticket for Autumn ensembles. From Burberry Prorsum’s beautiful line of intarsia cashmere sweaters featuring city icon motifs, to layers upon layers of fisherman knits at Michael Kors – be it oversized, fitted,  chunky or thin knits and in a plethora of textiles – you can’t go past a good sweater this season.

There are three definite knitwear camps to look to. Oversized chunky knitted sweaters and dresses which slouch just so, luxurious cashmere and merino in classic fitted shapes and the joyously embellished, dyed or patterned to turn the oft humble sweater into the attention grabbing focal point. Where do you pledge your allegiance? The beauty of knitwear is it's ability to partner with anything in your wardrobe. A knitted sweater provides casual charm to a feminine dress, contrasts richly in texture against leather and can add understated luxury to a pair of jeans and boots. Scarves are worn bountiful this season, perfect for wrapping up and protecting against the European cold.

Wool is a textile enjoying a lengthy moment with the resurgence of classic forms of decorative craftsmanship such as intarsia and designer innovation in new ways to blend and bond fibres for a superior look, feel and quality. You need only look to The International Woolmark Prize alumni and supporting partners to see just how much industry force is behind pushing the envelope with this natural fibre.

We've selected our favourite knitted pieces on the P.C.Hoofstraat, with guaranteed high returns on cost per wear this Winter.
