  • Rei Kawakubo stands among few designers that provoked the 1970’s anti-fashion movement. Popularizing rather unflattering cuts while rejecting societal norms, the Japanese designer would precede our current style evolutions with theatrics and avant-garde thinking. Her design philosophy was distilled, sharp, and concise, but only defined one aspect of the rebellious movement. In her neighbouring continent, on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, Vivienne Westwood would ignite a punk revolution in the heart of Britain. Dressing the UK’s outcasts and degenerates, inside her ‘SEX’ shop on King road punk’s godmother would debut the thrashed mohair sweater and her eponymous ‘Seditionaries’ label. Reinterpreted time and time again, the distressed knit returns, now in an array of differing textiles, cuts and pigments of course.


    From its roots in the British punk/rock scene, the distressed knit sweater continues to gain notoriety even in the modern age. Coming in an olive green colour way, this sweater features an array of sporadic, thrashed detailing, cut boxy with elongated sleeves. A draping neck line accentuates the relaxed figure, as detailing runs down either sleeves. Tagged as a size medium in pristine condition throughout.
