Jump to it

A funny thing has been happening over the past couple of seasons and this has been the rise of the statement jumper. The obvious cases incluing Kenzo tiger motifs and Givenchy’s bambi designs. And let’s not forget about Brian Lichtenberg’s satirical designer mock ups loved by celebrities such as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.

The jumper has become a luxury item that people are willing to pay big bucks for, often over four-figures. They have replaced the It-bag with their cult status.

However, as much as I appreciate a fabulously over the top creation I won’t be able to get away from their original purpose – warmth. And thankfully there’s been a heap of yummy jumpers floating around for me to take my pick.

The large roll neck is a favourite, so perfect for battling the winter ahead and thankfully ZARA has a few goodies in store.

These 3 are all from asos, if someone could please buy the black and white fluffy one I would greatly appreciate seeing it in the flesh.

Here are a couple of ZARA beauties - the bigger the neck, the better. There are so many more too so go have a look yourself.

This little guy is by Dondup and can be found at Yoox apparently it seems to be able to be worn either way round which seems pretty genius to me.

The four above are pretty luxury, l-r: Wear this Opening Ceremony number to re-live Anna Wintour's first Vogue cover; This Balenciaga knit looks so delicious I could eat it; A classic Brian number; finally, creme de la creme ethnic chic in Rodarte's creation (and a steal at £2350).

Which ones will you choose?
