THE GAME CHANGER: A STATE­MENT CARDI­GAN

The granny sweater is now the pop-star sweater.

Female (Singapore) - - CONTENTS - – NL

To para­phrase a cer­tain rap sen­sa­tion whose stage name hap­pens to be an ab­bre­vi­a­tion of the gar­ment in fo­cus here, this is the kind of but­ton-down knit sweater that “makes money moves”. Gucci’s (above right) for ex­am­ple is de­signed like a clas­sic tweed jacket – ex­cept that it isn’t tai­lored. Miu Miu’s (be­low right) is like a grown-up ver­sion of the preppy ar­gyle knit, ex­tended to sweep the an­kles and dot­ted with crys­tals. MSGM (be­low left) re­fines the kind of fuzzy out­ers as­so­ci­ated with the ’80s – still loud on colours and pat­terns, but mi­nus the kitsch. Yep, the granny sweater is now the pop-star sweater. Throw it on and you’ll be “the hottest in the street”. Cardi B would ap­prove.
