Our proposition for women’s turtlenecks encompasses formal, avant-garde, athletic, and streetwear incarnations, unified by a common commitment to an of-the-moment ethos. The form of the turtleneck evokes polished modernity and counter-cultural associations in equal measure, giving it an uncommon versatility between formal and casual contexts - utilitarian yet ornamental, it carries a sense of minimal grace above all else. Stretch cotton jersey pieces stand alone in spring and summer or act as strategic underlayer accent year-round. Merino wool and cashmere pullovers provide soft, lightweight comfort and flexibility and facilitate a clean tucked look or relaxed over-belt wearing. Mock neck collars offer a more subdued profile. Rib knit pieces give tactile interest and depth while straightforward knits concentrate on essential form. Acne Studios, Balenciaga, and others provide novel takes on the staple, with features like oversizing, dropped shoulders, overlong sleeves, self-tie fastenings, and modified funnel collars disrupting the traditional silhouette and offering new wearing possibilities.
