Exemplifying a push and pull between its function as both a formal layering tool and standalone statement piece, this season’s variety of crewneck sweaters showcases a multitude of different approaches to an ultimately straightforward design. Boasting diverse fabrics that range from finely crafted wool and cashmere knits to robust cotton jerseys, each of the pieces permeating this selection draws individual inspiration from the versatility of the crewneck sweater’s structure. Though stripes are recurring throughout, they are approached in significantly different ways, as evidenced in the way clean-cut preppy stripes stand in contrast to decadent, asymmetrical patterns. Colorful intarsia graphics infuse a striking aesthetic into wool knits, similar to the way that a quirky spirit is conjured through the use of argyle patterns. Featuring understated pieces that lend themselves to layering as well as more conceptual pieces that merit being styled on their own, the sheer scope of this crewneck sweater collection is in itself a testament to the durability of a timeless design.
