The yearlong celebration of Sonia Rykiel’s 50th anniversary continues with another special project: Generous Sweaters.
Creative director Julie de Libran thought that a capsule collection of sweaters with charitable causes was apropos to celebrate the queen of knits’ golden anniversary. De Libran enlisted a group of international, influential women to design a limited-edition sweater, the proceeds of which will go to a charity of their choosing. The group includes actresses Kirsten Dunst, Sofia Boutella and Kristin Scott Thomas; architect Kazuyo Sejima; model and activist Liya Kebede; artist Langley Fox and ballet dancer and artistic director of the Korean National Ballet Sue-Jin Kang. The charities include La Maison des Femmes, Planned Parenthood, Ving, Hope & Home for Children, Le Refuge, Lemlem Foundation, Okaeri-Gohan Shokun and the Children’s Hospital of Seoul National University.
“These extraordinary women have been much involved in the creative process, each talent has given her precious time to this charity-driven sweater capsule,” said de Libran. “I’m thankful they jumped into this initiative, focusing on charities helping women around the globe. It means a lot in 2018.”
The global launch of the capsule for Sonia Rykiel stores is Nov. 5. In the U.S., 10 Corso Como in New York will carry the collection
Whether you’re the type to wear T-shirts until it’s subzero or you can’t wait to get in your ultra-warm down jacket, you can’t disagree that a great sweater really racks up miles in your wardrobe. You can throw it on in the temperamental in-between weather we get when the seasons change, use it as a layering tool, or when it’s finally cold enough, have it keep you warm on hikes, trails or even just in the office. In short, you need a sweater that keeps up with you, and we might’ve found just the one.
The Robert Graham Blackburn Sweater is designed to be one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe. It’s made of 100 percent merino wool, so it’s delightfully soft and plush (read: not scratchy at all). The geometric triangular space dye jacquard adds a cool texture to a tried-and-true silhouette, while the contrast knit at the cuffs adds a decidedly playful touch to the anything-but-basic knit.
The Blackburn Sweater comes in a full range of sizes, from XS to 4XL. The one drawback? It’s dry clean only, so you can’t just throw it into your washing machine.
With fall slowly cycling in, your cold weather wardrobe is about to need of an upgrade. On the hunt for a classic and comfortable pick? We have our eyes on the Merino Waffle Crewneck Sweater at Todd Snyder. An instant classic, this knit delivers a relaxed, fashion-forward fit you can bank on.
Designed with 100 percent Italian merino sourced from Tollegno, this knit exudes sophisticated flair. It’s lightweight and smooth, making it a great pick for wishy-washy transitional weather. Made with an emphasis on versatility and comfort, its ribbed trim and detail bring dimension to your look for a sweater that can be worn solo or layered over a button down for a smart tailored finish. It’s designed to keep you warm as without ever feeling uncomfortable. Better yet, the unique thermal knit stitching makes this style the perfect update on any knit sweaters already part of your fall and winter repertoire.
The Todd Snyder style is the perfect clean-cut knit to wear with almost anything in your wardrobe, whether you’re headed to the office or just want a layer to throw on for a late-night walk. Top of the line quality and refined style are the brand’s strong points. With the retail price of $ 188, this sweater will undoubtedly become a staple in your closet for years to come.

Crewneck sweaters are essentially the Swiss Army knife of knits: theyâre the versatile staple piece that can work with everything else youâre planning on wearing this fall. That familiarity and ubiquity makes them a great place for designers to experiment â itâs as if theyâre a blank canvas thatâs just waiting for the right artist.

MILAN — Say it with a sweater.
In keeping with the success of her Rainbow Week knits — the range of sweaters with the days of the week which made their debut on the brand’s pre-fall catwalk in January — Alberta Ferretti has developed a special style for the holiday season.
A red cashmere crewneck sweater showing the wording “Merry Christmas” in ivory-white will be sold in exclusive at luxury online fashion shopping destination luisaviaroma.com starting from Nov. 17 at noon.
The sweater, which will be available for women, men and children, will retail at 295 euros for the children’s version and at 440 euros for the adult option.
In the last few months, the Alberta Ferretti brand developed special editions of the Rainbow Week sweater, including a style celebrating fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni’s 30th birthday anniversary last May and the one created for Milanese retailer La Rinascente introduced last September during Milan Fashion Week.
Um, this is clearly NSFW.

Figuring out what to wear for school picture day can be stressful, but this kid had his outfit picked out before he was even born.
In early October, Brady Gose, 7, from Brownsburg, Indiana, became the third generation in his family to wear the same sweater for school picture day. Five of the Gose males have worn the gray pullover for their first-grade pictures since the 1950s, and Brady took on the tradition with dignity and style.
“If we had a family heirloom, this simple store-bought sweater is it,” Chuck Gose, Brady’s father, told The Huffington Post in an email. “As Brady’s dad, it means the world to see his pride in wearing the sweater.”
Gose’s father and two uncles all wore the sweater for their first-grade pictures when they lived in Maine, simply because their grandmother thought it would be fun. That sentiment stuck, and Gose’s parents had him wear it for his own first-grade picture in 1982, in Springboro, Ohio, catching the attention of a local newspaper.
After his father’s death in 1999, before Brady was born, Gose had every intention of honoring both the tradition and his family.
“The sweater is a way for his memory to live on, not only to my son but also future generations,” he told HuffPost. “I know that he would be proud to see the grandson he never met carrying on the tradition.”
The sweet symbolism of the sweater has resonated with the family’s Brownsburg community, making the 7-year-old feel like a small town star, with a bright smile to match.
“I think it’s the simplicity of the story is why people have enjoyed it. It’s not fancy. It’s not glamorous,” Gose said. “It centers around a symbolic time like school pictures.”

We are so sick of winter weather, all we want to do is head to the beach and soak up the sun. We may be getting a little ahead of ourselves but it’s never too early to start shopping for summer, right?
This week, many of our favorite Hollywood stars stepped out in affordable looks that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Reese Witherspoon wore not one, but two items we’re coveting (especially her reasonably priced Talbots top) and Charli XCX rocked a T-shirt that would look perfect with our denim cut-offs.
Check out the best cheap celeb finds of the week and let us know which have been added to your wish list.
Happy Holidays! It’s that time of year again — gifts have been exchanged and you are fitting them into your closet, dressers and other storage units. Amidst that wonderful gift giving, did you receive clothing or an accessory item that you know does not give off your best yet, feel a sense of obligation to keep or worse, to wear?
This fashion no-no has been poked fun at in many films. If you have seen Bridget Jones’s Diary you may remember the scene when Bridget’s mother wanted to introduce her to Mark Darcy at a Holiday gathering. Bridget first sees Mark from behind and says to herself “Ding-dong. Maybe this time Mum had got it right…maybe this is the mysterious ‘Mr. Right’ I have been waiting my whole life to meet”. When Mark turns around the camera focuses on Mark’s odd reindeer sweater and Bridget says to herself “Maybe NOT.” Later on in the film we find out Mark’s mother had bought the sweater for him and he felt obliged to wear it.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had a client tell me that they have kept or wear a particular clothing or accessory item because their Mother, Mother-in-Law, Aunt, Cousin etc. got it for them as a gift. These same clients also indicate that they know the item does not suit them, but, they must keep or wear the item anyway.
Here are some key questions to ask yourself when entertaining the idea of keeping or wearing an item that was gifted to you that you know does not show off your best energy:
- Who is in charge of your appearance choices? (in other words, who decides your clothing choices?)
- Does the person who gifted the item to you know your color palette and style – and how you want to dress to maximize your body type, lifestyle and personality?
- Would YOU rather wear your clothes/accessories or have your clothes wear you?
- Who is in charge of what goes into your closet, dressers and other storage units?
- What opportunities could bypass you if you wear the item that does not suit you? (in the example above Mark could have missed out on a romance opportunity).
Many times we are so busy trying to please other people that we give up our personal fashion and image power. The reality is if the person who gifted you the item knew how you truly felt about the item, they probably would not want you to keep it anyway.
Regardless of whether you are going to wear the item or not, always thank the gift giver for the item. Ideally, make sure if you have a gift receipt, return the item. If you don’t have a gift receipt, if you know that item is in a friend’s color palette and style, either gift it to them, or donate the item to a charity
You have the power to take charge of your appearance choices and your closet.
There’s no time like the present to put a stop to the mindset that just because your family member or friend got you this sweater, you must keep it and wear it.
I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
