The Last Design Icons Supper

by Alexei Vella
Toronto-based illustrator Alexei Vella applies his signature touch to this holiday sweater. With a strong focus on the center graphic, the contrast ribbing and the scratched fade effect makes for a stylish and trendy top.
by Josha Lohrengel
Berlin-based illustrator Josha Lohrengel outfits a contrasting sweater with a geometric Christmas tree surrounded by snowflakes. A Highsnobiety logo tops things off while the artist's alias lays discreetly below.
by Ghica Popa
Romanian illustrator Ghica Popa presents his take on a Christmas staple. Appearing rather simple at first glance, a closer inspection reveals a technological twist on the classic snowflake design. Enjoy the attention to detail throughout.
by Katrin Kuhn
Collage artist Katrin Kuhn applies her unique take of the form with a black-and-white beauty against a starry night sky and colorful Christmas treats. Taking advantage of the current all-over print trend, a classic candy cane makes its way from the front of the sweater to the sleeve.
A Burry Gucci Holiday
by Alex Usow
Based out of Gastown, Vancouver, one-man art collective Alex Usow re-appropriates Gucci Mane's likeness for his cheeky design. In place of the American poet's ice cream tattoo, Usow places a seasonal Christmas tree and presents.
To finish off our month of holiday specials, we present 10 Christmas sweaters, each illustrated by a different illustrator. We gave each participant carte blanche, resulting in a wide range of styles and techniques. While some drew upon Highsnobiety and daily offerings, others let the environment around them influence their design. Although each design is purely conceptual at the moment, let us know which you like most in the comments section below and, if the stars align, we may just produce it.
Enjoy all of them in the gallery above and head over to our holiday site for more seasonal goodness.
