Gianni Versace Knits are Still the Best!

This 80's sweater from celebrated designer GIANNI VERSACE reminds us of something many don't seem to touch on when they remember the icon, his extraordinary, mad-cap knits! Like his peers Kenzo, Krizia & Kansai, Versace was producing knitwear like never seen before! Bright, humourous and bravely maximalist, these knits helped define the decade. This number above hits many of our favorite notes today with it's harlequin tiled front in a very subdued plum palette, western-inspired fringed trim and voluminous dolman sleeves. And with the brutally cold weather we have been seeing in New York this season, we couldn't think of a better base for bundling up!
