Sonia Rykiel is well known for her knit-wear for both men and women. Women’s cardigans and jumpers have typically been huge awe-inspiring creations with mouth-wateringly plump cables and ribs. The menswear knits, however, have mostly been confined to soft wool, fine-knit jumpers in Rykiel’s trademark horizontal stripes. Boring!
Until this season that is. Rykiel Homme is taking advantage of the current appetite for chunky knits and have brought out this beautiful jumper in soft grey. It channels my ultimate style icon – Robert Redford (Hubbell)in ‘The Way We Were’ with it’s roll neck and general 1940s loveliness. It’s good enough to eat!
