Despite it already being mid-January, it’s not too late to cop some fire winter gear – temperatures are still plummeting everywhere. Even if we are spending the rest of the winter hibernating at home, we’ve rounded up the best sweaters which will not only bring the heat but also make the perfect investment piece for our wardrobes.
BOTTEGA VENETA brown knit wool sweater, £1280/$1745
This knitted Bottega Veneta sweater by Daniel Lee is made up of a wool-cotton blend and features cut-out shoulders, as well as alternating knit patterns. The design is a perfect encapsulation of the world of knitted luxury.
MKI Embroidered Logo Sweat-£59/$80
This MKI embroidered white sweatshirt is made from an organic cotton blend, and the print is just big enough to flex on those standing safely 2m away from you.
Pas Normal Studios Black Off Race Logo-Print Sweatshirt-£85/$115
Pas Normal Studios is a premium cycling brand, so it comes to no surprise that they’ve made a cotton sweatshirt that fits like a glove, or rather a cycling helmet. The first rule of ‘international cycling club’ is you do indeed talk about international cycling club.
Sporty & Rich ‘Rizzoli’ Crew Sweat-£129/$175
Kith Creative lead Emily Oberg started Sporty and Rich in 2015 and it has since become a mark for fire athletic wear. With ‘Health Club’ printed on it, no one will be the wiser as you go into the shop to buy another packet of cookies and some wine.
Ami Paris Mint logo-embroidered cotton sweatshirt- £250/$340
Ami has made their heart-motif a key part of their recent collections. This mint sweatshirt is a breath of fresh air (no pun intended) for any minimalist wardrobe. The sweatshirt is also available in an off-white colourway.
Helmut Lang grey heritage distressed sweater, £385/$525
2020 was a rough year for everyone, both emotionally and physically. Helmut Lang seems to have replicated that feeling with their distressed grey wool/cashmere blend jumper. Feel like a pandemic survivor in the movies in the comfort of your own home. “Alexa, play Birdbox”.
Off-White Arrow Knitted Sweater- £390/$531
This jumper has all the marks of an Off-White piece. Arrow logo? Check. Striped sleeves? Check. Good fit and playful design? Check and Check.
Boramy Viguier geometric knit sweatshirt-£405/$552

John Elliot grey wool structure sweater-£500/$681
This distressed, slightly oversized grey jumper by American designer John Elliot features a rib-knit crewneck collar as well as distressed cuffs and hem. This piece is perfect for a more grunge-take on cosy knitwear.
PRADA logo-print oversized cotton sweatshirt-£790/$1077
Do not adjust your eyes, this is not a fuzzy or partially loaded photo. This oversized Prada sweatshirt features an 8-bit like design of their logo, literally blurring the lines between luxury fashion and streetwear.
