WOMEN’S DESIGNER JUMPERS

Designer sweaters for women are truly key pieces of today’s world. As an item of clothing, their different designs may serve different purposes on different times of the year and/or occasions. They may be the main pieces of a look, or simply one more layer of our everyday attire. Sweaters, garnering popularity mostly as uniforms such as USA’s Ivy League institutions, have adapted to the everchanging rhythm of today’s society with modern colours, shapes and entirely new materials each season. 

Women’s jumpers reflect personality inherently, both from the label and the wearer. They reflect a legacy from the brands, and have become symbolic pieces of labels such as Prada, The Row or Max Mara. The quality of the designs of these jumpers and sweaters make them unmistakable. 

For modern women, jumpers are a way to harmonise and give coherence to a full look. They can also be merely functional pieces, yet usually with emphasis placed on its aesthetic and design. Thus, there are many different types of women’s sweaters according to taste and desired functionality. The type of knit may also influence the function and wearability of the same silhouette. Women’s designer sweaters can be of high neck, subdivided into roll necks and turtlenecks (the former of a thicker knit). They may also be of crewneck, which vary mostly in their designs and purposes by using one or the other type of knit size. Generally, the thicker the sweater, we assume a higher shelter against the cold. However, such is no universal law. How porous they are and the quality of the fibres used will influence highly the warmth of these pieces, being cashmere the preferred by many for its capacity to provide warmth while remaining slimmer in volume.

SWEATSHIRTS FOR WOMEN

Women’s designer sweatshirts and hoodies are a key item of the 21st Century. Their sportswear origin as clothing for athletes to warm up and dress in uniform dates back to less than one hundred years ago. By the second half of the 20th century, the sweatshirt was the quintessential piece of athletes’ wear. The popularisation of sports’s culture and the comfort of these pieces made their sweatshirts an essential piece of 80s fashion style. 

With the expansion of new urban identities, sweatshirts became a part of the sporty aesthetic reimagined for daily wear. It became a norm to use sports’ clothes as an extension of sportpeoples’ personalities and identities, sort of like a non-verbal language or code. With time, the decontextualization of sportsclothes continued to advance to become the essential item that it is today. 

Practically, all great fashion labels have participated in the exploration of this modern classic, making it impossible to highlight a specific brand to go to. Way back when, sports’ companies were still leading the production of designer brand sweatshirts for women, but as the tides changed and fashion took their focus away from strictly formal clothing, sweatshirts became indispensable thanks to their comfort and versatility. Designer fashion had mainly focused on traditionally elegant or more formal clothes, but once the value of pieces like women’s sweatshirt brands became apparent, the market quickly grew to supply the demand for high quality comfortable clothing.

In our stores you will find this modern classic reimagined by most of our brands. The new value of comfortable clothing has become indispensable with the speed and nature of our new life, thus why many sweatshirt brands have jumped in to reinterpret sportswear as a great life companion. 

Sweatshirts and hoodies can be styled in as many ways as there are people, but modern styling pairs them with more elegant pieces such as coats by Givenchy, Loewe or Max Mara to achieved a relaxed yet sophisticated look. They may also carry our favourite brands’ logos, further expressing our identity and our idea of fashion. Cuts and shapes are diverse as well, with offerings of crewnecks, hoodies, deconstructed options, classic and/or basic cuts.
