Nicole Layborn, the creator of the New Zealand brand The Knitter, jokingly calls some of her cardigans and jumpers freaks, but this modesty is, to put it mildly, false. Once on The Knitter's website, the first thing you'll see is Grace Coddington laughing in the brand's sweater. If this name is not familiar to you, keep in mind that Coddington is one of the most famous stylists in the world, who has worked for a long time with Anna Wintour, the permanent editor-in-chief of American Vogue. The approval of such a person is praise of the highest category.

All sweaters are hand-knitted from merino or Peruvian wool, as well as from New Zealand mohair. Laybourne comes up with funny names that describe the color, pattern or silhouette: "Chewing gum", "Buttercup", "Monsieur bubble", "Stardust", "Happy Heart".

In total, there are now 14 sweaters, each with a certain style, but they also have something in common - volume. If you prefer fitted models, then it is better to go in search of other stores. Oversized is a key focus of The Knitter.

Behind the playful name is an excellent Moscow brand, which began with beautiful knitted lingerie and has expanded significantly by now. Today the brand offers various jerseys for different seasons. In the "bureau" you can buy bodysuits, tops, fashionable bicycles, underwear and accessories like hats and bibs.

I would also like to praise the packaging - neat pale pink boxes and branded paper make the brand's products only better.

The brand combining knit and library in its name is a regular exhibitor at Pitti Uomo. He offers lovely jumpers, vests, polos and other jerseys. The collections are designed for both men and women. The quality is so excellent that you want to touch these things over and over again, or even better - put them on and never take them off.

The palette is also very pleasant: delicate pinks and pale blue shades coexist with coffee and indigo. Materials used: cashmere, silk, delicate alpaca wool. Prices are high, but quality cannot be cheap.

Who should you take an example from when choosing a sweater for the autumn-winter season? Certainly not with movie stars, models and other lovers to sit out in the warmth. Irish fishermen - that's who knows how to dress warmly; but somehow they look so good that you want to take apart their wardrobe into separate elements.

Inishman is one of the three Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, and its name is played by the creators of the Inis Meáin brand. It is difficult to imagine any other goods besides sweaters in the place where the Aran sweater appeared, perhaps the warmest in the world.

Key characteristics: wool without any synthetic impurities, dense knit - no wind should be scary in this, light colors, from milky to boiling white. However, sometimes brown versions come across as well. Well, last but not least, patterns. The braids and zigzags that cover the entire product are the standard.

In addition to Aranian sweaters, Inis Meáin has a dozen models of jumpers, turtlenecks and cardigans. The easiest way to get your hands on a brand is to place an order on Mr. Porter. If you are ready to wait indefinitely, take a look at the official website, the choice there is much wider.

You fall in love with the impossibly beautiful, unusual and colorful jewelry of the artist Sopho Gongliashvili, just like you do with her native Georgia - finally and irrevocably. In addition to jewelry, Gongliashvili creates sweaters and cardigans, which are as unusual as large bracelets and enamel rings. The main characters are big-eyed birds, donkeys, snakes, giant tulips, poppies, as well as representatives of flora and fauna unknown to science. You can buy Sopho Gongliashvili clothes in Moscow Indexflat.

Barrie

A cute knitwear brand with a very curious history. Barrie was founded in 1903 in Scotland and originally made stockings, but soon became so advanced in the creation of other wool items that it was from this factory that Coco Chanel ordered her first batch of two-tone jerseys in the 1920s.

More than a century later, or rather in 2012, the Scottish factory was acquired by Chanel, turning it into a knitwear brand with a design studio in Paris in 2014. However, all collections are still produced in Scotland. The brand creates collections for both women and men. At the heart of the classic, rethought in a modern way. We advise you to pay special attention to cardigans in bright colors in a retro style.

MIRSTORES

MIRSTORES is a Russian brand tending to gigantomania. Oversized sweaters in huge braids, diamonds, squares and other patterns quickly became his trademark. A palette that seems to have all possible colors - scarlet, lavender, cream, canary yellow, everyone's favorite black - also works for the Moscow brand.

Today the brand also offers more “compact” items: basic thin jersey made of cotton and linen, dresses, skirts and accessories, from cute knitted bags to scarves and headbands. Natural materials: wool, mohair, cashmere and linen. The only exceptions are waterproof raincoats.

Howlin's designers are inspired by the new beat music movement (a form of electronic music that gained popularity in Belgium in the 1980s) and sweaters from Ireland and Scotland. It sounds interesting, you must agree.

The Belgian brand is a newcomer to the fashion world, but it is developing very quickly, it takes part in extraordinary collaborations and increasingly flickers among large online retailers. All knitwear is handcrafted and the creators of Howlin proudly declare that their products are 100% Belgian. The sweaters look like a find from an expensive vintage shop tucked away in the alleys of Paris's Marais.

Extreme cashmere

The Amsterdam-based brand with a sonorous name has a curious concept: it creates unisex items exclusively from cashmere and in only one universal size. Extreme cashmere slogan: "For everybody and every body" ("For everyone and for any figure"). It is based on one permanent collection, in which a small number of new models appear four times a year, corresponding to a particular season. Each Extreme cashmere garment features a tiny flag embroidered on the cuff.>
