Sweaters for Summer

Two looks, Missoni on top and Hermes on bottom, from a 1983 L’Officiel.

As linen and cotton yarns grow in popularity and fine gauge knits become increasingly cheaper to produce it’s about time we rethink the role of sweaters in our summer wardrobes.

Impractical? Fashion faux pas you say? Mind you sweater knits, wool yarns at that, were once the standard fabric for bathing suits…

A terribly chic bathing costume made up in wool yarn.
