Sweaters Go To Fashion Week

As London Fashion Week AW16 kicks off soon, we got to thinkin' about knitwear (obviously). But more specifically, knitwear and fashion. While our love for cashmere and merino is pure and unadulterated, we can't help but notice how knitwear has become as permanent a fixture on the fashion scene as Anna Wintour. Below, we profile some of our favourite sweater street-style looks.

Whether with a skirt, trousers (or as a dress!) knitwear has serious fashion credentials as demonstrated. And if we may say, the better the quality, the haute-r the result. Inspired? Find your perfect sweater to re-create the looks here.
