Forget the Ugly Christmas Sweater, this season the term doesn’t exist. With Balenciaga having reissued a famous dog face sweater for Pre-Fall 2011 and Givenchy Fall 2011 Winter 2012 collection loaded with cat-inspired ensembles, it’s high time we face it: animal face sweater is a must-have!
Looking for some inspiration? The first thing coming to my mind is a picture of Colin Firth in Bridget Jones’ Diary. He played Mark Darcy, a one fashionable man who submitted his dignity to the winsome Rudolph jumper. Thanks, Mom! Besides, how come you know this is going to be a huge knit trend in 2011? Okay, whatever.
Don’t you wish you could cuddle up with soft-and-furry wild animals sometimes (just like Mark Darcy)? Well, now you can! The colourful animal face knit detailing gives the oversized sweater a chunky finishing touch. If you can’t afford a $1000 Balenciaga dog sweater, why don’t you try this Wildfox Couture reindeer sweater as seen on Brenda Song? It’s fun, oversized, distressed and above all, it features a trendy animal face. These features make it a must-have winter 2012 piece. Fashion and fun? Let’s kill two birds with one stone!
