Now, we've got mad love for Winter knitwear, but those novelty numbers, they've got to go. Sticking to something with less comedic value, but the same amount of cosiness is pretty much exactly what the doctor ordered, and it's coming from the most unexpected of places, Kopparberg. Yes, that Kopparberg, the cider you enjoy sipping on your wild nights at the pub, have teamed up with London-based knitwear label Leutton Postle to create a limited-edition Kopparberg sweater.
While working on the design, the team from Leutton Postle took a trip to Kopparberg (the place) in Sweden to gather inspiration for the sweater, designing bold geometric shapes that echo the town's Autumn leaves and angular countryside barns, over a deconstructed version of the traditional 'fair-isle' knit pattern. The brand's craft-led collections and extraordinary attention-to-detail has landed it on the pages of magazines like Vogue, i-D, and Dazed & Confused, and garnered them a loyal fan-base. Plus they make cool A.F. knitwear that's actually wearable.
The limited-edition Kopparberg X Leutton Postle sweater is available from Machine A in London's Soho, and via phone orders (020 7734 4334) for £150.
