If I was a gambling man, I’d bet on mohair being big in the coming seasons. I don’t mean it’s going to be huge, but I reckon it’s one to watch.

Mohair comes from the angora goat (not to be confused with angora, which comes from a rabbit) and is super silky and fluffy. Just looking at it makes me feel like I’ve got a hair in my throat, but apart from this minor detail, I can’t see much wrong with it. Johnny Rotten worked it whilst swearing and shocking the nation on that infamous Bill Grundy Show episode, and who know’s better than him? It looks fresh and interesting at Dries Van Noten and even Hedi Slimane did a black and white striped mohair jumper in his last collection for Dior Homme. Get it here.

You heard it here first.
